Thibs, on if he thought Rose was fatigued in the 2nd half: "Oh I don't know. Jesus. He's got to get out there and play ..."
Thibs sending a pretty clear message to Rose about finding a way to stay on the floor. Thibs' frustration with Rose's status is palpable.
Mike Dunleavy's only two points with 22.5 seconds left in game on followup of Jimmy Butler blocked layup is winning basket.
"... He’s gotta go. That’s the bottom line, he’s gotta go.’’
"You can see he’s not real comfortable with the ball yet, but that will come. When he strings some games together he’s going to take off.''
“Oh I don’t know, Jesus. Gotta get out there and play, you know. I thought he did a lot of good things. ... ''
Intense Thibs sending a message to Rose and his protectors. Thibs asked about Rose looking fatigued:
Noah had drops put in his left eye. Hoping he doesn't have to goggle-up. Dunleavy, however, was pulling for Noah in goggles.
Butler Rose Gasol. Strong. Butler took Hayward out of the game. Mirotic developing in front of our eyes
As always Bulls fans. Thanks for listening A pleasure.
Noah got his eye checked out. Says they put some stuff in it but hopes he will be fine for Denver.
Thibs made it very clear that he is tired of Rose injury talk. "He's gotta go (play)!" Thibs insisted twice. More to come.
Thibs said Noah is being looked at by eye doctor. He got poked in the eye late in the game.
Bulls win...Hayward misses top side 3 for the win....97-95 Rose-18 Butler-25 Gasol-23-9
Hayward misses a 3 at the buzzer. Bulls escape with a win. Butler and Gasol lead the way offensively again combining for 48 points.
Gasol splits a pair...Bulls 97-95 2.9 sec left Jazz ball.
Tony Snell found his place on this team - jump-ball expert!!
Thibs goes with offense/defense sub putting Snell back in for Dunleavy. Snell wins jump ball. Bulls have chance to wrap up game.
Dunleavy with the put back Bulls 96-95 Jazz ball 18sec left
Home crowd in Salt Lake City confused. Constantly calling Jimmy Butler, "Loooouuuuuuuu." Bulls by one with 18 seconds left
Great hustle by Dunleavy. Butler picked up ball and raced down the floor but his shot got blocked. Dunleavy put it back in, gave Bulls lead.
Welcome back to the game, Mr. Rose.
Go-to player for the Bulls this season? Jimmy All-Star.
Noah is back on the floor. Appears to be moving OK.
Jazz take their biggest lead of four with 3:30 to go. The altitude, yeah, tha'ts it, the altitude. And all the streets are named Temple.
Jazz have clawed all the way back. Outscored Bulls 46-36 in the paint. Out-rebounded Bulls 37-31. Lead by 4 with 3:30 left.
Jazz lead 91-87
Noah left eye injury questionable to return
Jimmy Butler tonight (no extension) 40 minutes, 23 points, 7/13 from field. Gordon Hayward (max extension) 33 minutes, 6 pts 2/10 from field
Bulls players need to start wearing bubble wrap.
Noah eye poke has him in the locker room.
Rose's lateral quickness isn't there right now. Much more noticeable on defense.
Jazz take a 88-87 lead
537 left Bulls 87-84 ...don't leave us on Bulls Radio
Aaron Brooks has 7 points in the fourth quarter. Rose waiting to check in at the scorer's table.
Rose back in with 6:59. Hero time?
Even with back-to-back, figured he could give them 28-30 tonight.
Rose 19 minutes and still sitting. Hmmmmm.
Noah went back to the locker room. Looked like he might have gotten hit in the face a few minutes ago. Bulls' staff checking him out.
Butler showed up to the arena before the rest of the team this morning, and was working on different ways to spin the ball for a layup.
Butler continues to attack the rim. His offensive confidence is off the charts. He's got 23 points and is 8-for-9 from the line.
Butler with 23...Bulls 84-82 early 4th
Snell has taken McDermott's late game minutes for the time being. But Thibs isn't very happy with either of them.
Won't see Snell for a month.
Meanwhile, the Bulls are self-destructing right now. Can't find any rhythm offensively.
Butler gets T'd up. Will be interesting to hear what set him off after the game. Jimmy doesn't usually get that upset.
Venom suit ... I'm telling you.
Butler gets tied up with Ingles and is not happy. Feels like he got pulled. Talked to him on the floor and then said, "F*** you."
Bulls gave up 36 3rd quarter points
Bulls once led by 21--lead cut to 1 after 3...78-77
Butler and his black tape make it look like his Venom suit is slowly taking over.
Jazz have cut a 21 point lead to 1. Rose/Gasol/Butler are going to need to wrap this one up in the 4th quarter.
Bulls 73-64 Gasol-20 Butler-18 Rose-15
Rose out for Brooks with Bulls ahead 69-58. Rose played cautiously, more so in the third quarter and didn't really look to drive after half
Bulls lead cut to 11....60-49...847 left 3rd
Noah hasn't been much of a factor in this game. Hasn't scored in 19 minutes. Has 3 assists and 3 rebounds. Still trying to find consistency.
Not to say Butler is dominating Gordon Hayward, but Hayward just applied to go to grad school at Butler
Bulls 56-41 halftime
Bulls 55-41 Butler and Rose=29points
Rose warned us he would have a game where he hits 5 or 6 threes. Rose-stradamus!
Bulls 7 of 11- 3s Bulls 50-36 216 left 3rd
Bulls are six for nine on three pointers with all six coming from behind the arc
Jimmy Butler with third open court strip of a guard.Has only blown one of the three breakaway dunks. 37-20 Bulls,
Utah TV guys are crowning Mirotic "rookie of the year.'' If you wanna crown him, crown his ***!"
Niko with 2-3s...Bulls 37-20 ...Butler has taken Hayward out of this game
McDermott continues to struggle. He just looks lost out there at the moments. Needs to find his confidence.
Dominant Bulls starters' 30-14 first quarter: Rose 10, Butler 9, Gasol 8...and a partridge in a pear tree
Bulls 30-14 after 1...Rose-10 Butler-9 Gasol-8 Bulls 58%fg
Mirotic with a 30 foot three. Can't believe American three-point line is just 23-9.
Jimmy, meet Derrick. Derrick? Jimmy.
This is Jimmy Butler's 4th season in the Association. He has started just 12 games with Derrick Rose, including tonight.
Jazz tough to watch as most players on teams named Burke. Would be better if Doris Burke did the broadcasting
Very quiet in here. Some fan stands up and screams: "Hey Noah -- you suck!" Very original. I'm sure he's never heard that one before.
In those 43 minutes -- the Bulls outscored their opponents 98-74.
Bulls 16-4 start. Rose with 10 points in first four minutes now on pace to score 120 points.
Burst is overrated when life is good behind the three.
Bulls 16-4 Rose is back.,....10 points
Rose has 10 points in 4 minutes -- including two threes. The Bulls' offense is rolling with him early.
Rose's J works.
This is like Team USA all over again. Rose put Burke in the fetal position then, is doing it now.
Rose drains his first 3. He also had an assist to Gasol. Even Thibs managed an early clap.
Quin Snyder looks like a bad guy in a William Dafoe movie.
Bulls "regular" starting lineup of Rose, Butler, Dunleavy, Gasol, Noah starting together for third time this season. Thus far 2-0.
Rose and Gasol are announced in the starting lineup and get high fives from teammates and they run to the floor. Here we go.
Can't remember seeing it this empty before a game here in SLC. Usually this place is rocking.
I'm too young to remember these guys @34Billy42 tells me they were pretty good http://t.co/G6BIP3j63I
