Derrick Rose was Chicago’s hero in Game 3.
The Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers played a very physical and thrilling Game 3 on Friday night that was won by the Bulls 99-96 after Derrick Rose banked in a 27-foot, buzzer-beating three-pointer over Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson. Rose finished with 30 points, and most importantly gave Chicago a 2-1 lead in the series.
This is something you love to see from Rose, who’s injury history ever since capturing MVP in 2011 has been well-documented. He’s endured hardships throughout the course of this season, but this triumph may make up for it all. Rose scored 14 of his points in the fourth quarter, and now has is team in the position to take a commanding 3-1 series lead when Game 4 rolls around on Sunday.
