I attended the Fantasy Sports Conference in Vegas on Friday and during a presentation by the company who provides stats for the NBA, they put up a slide that said the Bulls struggle to guard ball screens and struggle guarding players like Jeff Teague.  Well, the Bulls and the red hot Hawks played last night and the Bulls lost and Teague had 17 points (only 5 of 16 shooting) and 11 assists.  Interesting.

They didn’t have a slide for Derrick Rose but it’s safe to say every team has a hard time guarding him.  Yes, his team did lose (big deal, everybody loses to the Hawks now) but he did put up an impressive 23 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds.
