Holiday torched the Bulls in the opening round of the playoffs.
Once Rose when down with that ugly knee injury, the Chicago Bulls guards stood no chance against the Philadelphia 76ers. All you have to do is take a look at Games 2-6, where Jrue Holiday dominated the Bulls.
Holiday averaged 18 points per game in the series, and he scored at will against Chicago. He dominated the Bulls' point guards; particularly in Game 2 where he poured in 26 points.
The Chicago back court, in particular C.J. Watson were completely outplayed in the playoffs. Watson is supposed to be a veteran, and yet when the game was on the line the "veteran" acted like he was a rookie.
The bonehead error occurred when he dished the ball to Omer Asik, who is a putrid free throw shooter at 40 percent from the line.
On the contrary, Watson is a career 80 percent free throw shooter, and in this situation he should have forced Philadelphia to foul him. This mistake was simply unacceptable, and without that pass there was a solid chance of the Bulls forcing a Game 7.
All of Watson's numbers were down in the playoffs. His points dropped from just under 10 points to seven a game, and his three point shooting was awful, and he shot just 25 percent from three point range.
With the announcement that Rose is expecting to miss an extended period of time, the Bulls will have to address the back court this offseason.
