Bulls @ LAC

LAC starting out strong in front of their home crowd, while the Bulls still playing like they're full from last seasons success.

Griffin in two plays has shown a pump fake, drive and dunk... And then excellent footwork with the up and under on Boozer.

D. Rose looks like a more

D. Rose looks like a more mature player this year... He's seeing the floor better and playing at an even more controlled pace.

It's clear he's trying to get his teammates more involved this year.

I agree D. Rose is no longer

I agree D. Rose is no longer that shot chucker he was last year. He has really in games I've seen slowed and sped the pace up like a Rondo or CP3 he really looks good now.

A lot of people don't realize

A lot of people don't realize that Rose took a lot of shots because he had too. He's always prefered to be a pass first point guard.

I think that now his team is healthy, we'll see him getting more people involved first and then taking over when the game is on the line.

Rose was an anti-chucker

Rose was an anti-chucker until last season. He was way too passive.

I'm all for Rose getting his

I'm all for Rose getting his teammates involved, but I actually think he could be more aggressive.

But he can get his whenever he wants... I think it's smart that he's trying to give his teammates confidence. He can't do it by himself, especially vs a great defensive team like Miami.

If he sacrifices some scoring

If he sacrifices some scoring to make the team better come playoffs I'm all for it. He will find his time to score more points when he has too.

As good as a defender as Noah

As good as a defender as Noah is, he's really no match for Griffin.

15, 8 and 3 for Griffin at the half. He's shown a lot. Reverse pivot up and unders. Fadeaways. Power moves at the bucket. His go-to spin move on the block. Dunks. Leading the fast break and great passes. Hustle plays and hitting the floor for loose balls.

Still not impressed with his defense though.

Who is winning the Rose/Paul battle right now? I can't watch the game and I don't want to box score evaluate.

Paul has been more of a pest

Paul has been more of a pest at the defense end, but Rose is definitely winning the battle.

Rose has a gear that Paul no longer has. I've noticed that the only time Paul can score on Rose is when he gets a pick... Yet Paul can't contain Rose off of the dribble. Rose is bigger, stronger, faster and quicker. And in the few plays Rose has attacked the rim, he's made it look so easy. He could obliterate Paul if he wanted.

I'm not so sure Paul is better than Rose...

And defensively, Rose is all

And defensively, Rose is all over Paul... Paul can't get free without a pick. LAC is setting double screens for Paul right now just to get him free.

Paul did just break Rose down

Paul did just break Rose down off of the dribble something serious...

DeAndre Jordan still thinks he's supposed to block every shot... 4th foul and gives Deng three free-throws. Now Brian Cook in the game.

Deng is very underrated. I

Deng is very underrated.

I also think I could be wrong on the Rip Hamilton pickup. He looks like a very good fit at both ends.

Paul's hands are still quick

Paul's hands are still quick as F though.

What makes Paul great is because he knows EVERYONE'S game... He understands their strengths and weaknesses and where they like the ball.

LAC can't defend. They remind

LAC can't defend. They remind me of the Suns. It's basically spacing the floor with shooters, and running pick and roll with Paul and Griffin/Jordan.

D. Rose 29 points on 14

D. Rose 29 points on 14 shots. 3-4 3-PT. 10-11 FT. 8 rebounds. 15 assists.

He was dominate tonight. Wasn't even close between him and Paul.

He sure looked like the best point guard in the NBA to me tonight.
