Rose followed his 5-for-20 night at the Pacers with a 2-for-15 clunker in the Bulls' 96-82 loss to the Nets that snapped a seven-game win streak. With a 0-for-5 night from 3-point range, Rose dropped to a career-low 26.3 percent on the season from that distance. Worse, he's attempting a career-high 5.4 attempts per game. "Terrible," Rose said, when asked to describe his night. But Rose won't stop shooting. "My confidence to shoot is there," he said. "All of them were on target. They're just not falling. I'm not going to stop shooting. If they go under (screens), I'm going to shoot the shot. I work on it enough. I just haven't seen them go in yet. Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Bulls come into Monday night's game against the Indiana Pacers having won six games in a row and nine of their last ten, but star point guard Derrick Rose is convinced his team can get even better as the season progresses. "I think we can," Rose said before Monday's shootaround. "I don't want to jinx ourselves but I think we can really make a run for this [championship] this year. But it just takes focus, discipline and we got to sacrifice a little bit." ESPN.com

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau echoes those sentiments. He is pleased with the way his team is performing, he just doesn't want them to lose focus. "I think we're moving in the right, the last 10 games, we're moving in right direction," Thibodeau said. "I think [we're] playing strong on both sides of the ball. We're getting a lot of contributions from different people. And it's been good but we have to be able to sustain it and keep building." ESPN.com

When asked what message the T-shirt sent out to the country, James responded: “I don’t know. It’s not for us to figure out. It’s just for us to understand what we’re going through as a society. I’ve been forwarded over and over about what’s been going on. This is more of a notion to the family more than anything. As a society we have to do better. We have to be better for one another no matter what race you are. But it’s more of a shoutout to the family more than anything because they’re the ones who should be getting the energy and effort.” For The Win
