This game pretty much went how we thought it would go… Detroit is not a contender, but they do have some scorers in Gordon and Stuckey, both of whom would not be on deck for this contest. Brandon Knight continues to be a bright spot for Detroit however… He had a solid game with 16 pts. Prince, Daye and Monroe also scored in double figures.
The Bulls dominated on the boards, 53-37 and gave themselves extra possessions with 20 offensive rebounds. The game was never in doubt and any win without Derrick Rose, against any opponent is impressive. Everyone who played scored and the Bulls spread 22 assists around. Great ball movement by the Bulls… This is something that they have had to depend on with Rose out of the lineup.
