“I felt good. I was kind of surprised. I wasn’t as fatigued as I thought I would be missing a couple of days,” Rose said after scoring 15 of the Bulls 49 fourth quarter points in a 129-120 victory over the Toronto Raptors.
Rose hit all 6 of his shots in the 4th and finished with a total of 29 points and finished the Raptors with a 3 point dagger with a minute left in the game.
“We know we can always count on him, go to him. That’s just the type of guy he is,” Butler said. “He wants the pressure on him. He produces. He produced. I think we’re going to keep on going back to him and he’s going to do the same thing every night.”
The same could be said for should be All-Star Jimmy Butler who put up 27 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks.
