Bulls want to stay together even if Rose's ankle isn't right

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Regardless of how effective Derrick Rose is on his sprained left ankle, the Bulls want to stick to their principles, rather than having other players try to take up any slack and get too fancy.
``We all have to be aggressive, but we have to take what's there,'' guard Kyle Korver said. ``We don't need anyone to feel like they have to make up for Derrick if he's not 100 percent, to feei like they have to take more shots or be more aggressive
``We all have to be more aggressive, but that doesn't mean we have to go one on one. We just have to work it as a team.''
Despite limiting his activity at the Bulls' shootaround Tuesday morning, Rose remained optimistic he'll be able to play.

Obviously it's important to get a real complete win before moving into the second round, but the lack of Carlos Boozer in the paint has to be troubling. If the Magic top the Hawks and advance, they will be nearly impossible to beat if Boozer isn't putting some pressure on Howard's interior defense. Getting him tired/in foul trouble is key against that team, but Boozer is the only one who can do it. Two points on five shots like last night just won't cut it. Check it out:
