Just look at these numbers!
Jimmy Butler: 43 points & 8 rebounds
Derrick Rose: 34 points & 8 assists
Pau Gasol: 30 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists & 5 blocks
That’s 107 points between the 3 Bulls. That’s RUN TMC type numbers. And sadly those numbers came in a 4 OT heartbreaker against the Pistons on Friday night.
“You fight hard, you put everything you have on the court, and to lose like this in four overtimes at home, it’s a heartbreaker,” Gasol said. “It happens.”
“We’re expected to win,” said Butler who had a career-high in points and made a 3-pointer with 4.7 seconds left in the game “Four overtimes, no overtimes. We didn’t do that. Didn’t protect our home floor.”
This was the 13th time a 4 OT game has happened in the NBA and 2nd time in Bulls History but Chicago got the win in the 1984 OT game.
