Although Rose has stated he will not play until he feels comfortable from a mental standpoint, it is one less obstacle the organization has to worry about concerning his return.
The Bulls played well in the first half, as they built a 55-46 halftime lead. However, for the second consecutive game, the team struggled offensively in the last 24 minutes, scoring just 34 points.
It appeared the Bulls were heading toward a disappointing loss, but thanks to Marco Belinelli's game-winning shot with 5.9 seconds to play, the Bulls got a much needed win before starting a three-game road trip out West.
With the victory, the Bulls currently sit at the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference.
