2011 NBA Playoffs: Rose, Bulls' Game One Statement Will Lead to Sweep of Pacers
What a game. What a comeback. What a player.
Indiana Pacers, thanks for coming.
Led by likely NBA MVP Derrick Rose’s 39, the Bulls staged an amazing and entertaining comeback to kick off this year’s NBA Playoffs in style with a 104-99 victory over the No. 8 seed Pacers.
The win came after the Bulls had fallen behind by 10 points with just over three minutes to play, and were still trailing by five with 2:00 left in the game.
That’s when Rose remembered who he was and who he was playing.
En route to his career-playoff-high of 39 points, Rose rallied and made five straight points and scored seven of the Bulls’ final 10 points in the last two minutes, leaving Indiana scoreless during that span.
Although a slight wake-up call, don’t expect any similar lapses by Chicago as they now punish the Pacers and will provide the first four-game sweep of the Playoffs.
