There is no point guard in basketball that can stop Derrick Rose's combination of speed, quickness, strength and finishing ability. When I say no point guard in basketball can stop him, that includes Mike Bibby.
The Bulls need to clear out and let Rose go one-on-one with his defender. They have been crowding him with the pick-and-roll and not letting the point guard isolate like he was born to do. We are running our big men up high on a pick-and-roll, which is easy to defend with a high double-team. When Rose's shot isn't falling, it frankly isn't falling. That is why the Bulls shouldn't depend on Rose's outside jump shot, but rather let him get to the lane and do what he does best.
Rose was first-team All-NBA for a reason and that is his relentless attacking of the rim all season. The Heat don't have big men that intimidate Rose, but rather it is the Bulls offensive approach that is slowing him down.
Unless the Bulls add a shot-creating shooting guard by Wednesday night, we have to stick with Rose creating the offense.
The Heat's defense is fast, but nothing is Derrick Rose fast on a basketball court. Step aside, clear out and let Derrick Rose show the Miami Heat why he is the MVP of this league.
