Ok, the reigning MVP finally gave us a reigning MVP type of performance. He carried his Bulls to their 3rd win in 4 games last night vs “the best point guard in the NBA” Chris Paul 114-101. I think that title is totally up for debate now as Rose looks like he may be rounding into an actual point guard with his 16 asts, 29 points, and 8 rebounds on (8/14 fg’s, 3/4 3pts, 10/11 ft’s). Prior to this victory the MVP race was shaping up to be all about KD vs LBJ, and though it may be hard for Rose to win back-to-back’s with the way Durant and James are playing, a couple more of these performances and he might sneak in thru the back door.
*Lebron James: 34pts, 10asts, 8rebs, 4stls (103-101 W)
**Dwight Howard: 20points, 24rebs, 4asts, 4blks (101-79 W) *back to back 20 rebound performances.
