Derrick Rose’s MVP push is picking up steam, and he is looking more and more like the clear choice for MVP.
On Friday night the Chicago Bulls went to Orlando and defeated the magic 89-81. The Bulls held the lead for most of the game and fended off a Magic run in the fourth. Rose led the Bulls scoring 24 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. Luol Deng added 16 points and 6 rebounds. The Magic were led by Dwight Howard’s 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 blocks. Howard also picked up his 16th technical foul, which means he faces a suspension.
With their win tonight the Bulls have now pulled into a tie with Miami for 2nd place in the east.
