The Bulls hosted the Bobcats at the UC tonight. Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson did not play. Rose missed his 4th striaght game with a toe injury. Noah has a left sprained ankle and Taj I am not sure about. That meant people like Omar Asik, Brian Scalabrine, and Kevin James had to step up.
The Bulls are now 15-3 the best record in the NBA. Leading their division by 3 games over Indiana Pacers. The Magic trail the Bulls by 2.5 games in the Conference.
So the game tonight was a close game all the way till the Bulls pulled away at the end. The final score was 95-89.
The 1st half was a back and forth game. Either team really couldn't get a huge lead. it was 3,4,5 point game almost the whole way. The 2nd half was a good half. Not really much to say. Without Rose the game can get boring.

You can't forget Brian Scalabrine who had only 2pts and 1 rebound. He totally deserves a paragraph to himself. Brian contributes in so many ways that he really doesn't need to fill up the stat book. Let's Go Brian!
