Chicago has its mojo back--and mojo's name is Derrick Rose. Former MVP Derrick Rose, whose leg injuries have caused more unhappy reversals than a season's worth of Game of Thrones, has reentered the playoffs like certain spacecraft reenter the atmosphere: he's on fire. Rose scored 34 points in a double-overtime win to put the Bulls up 3-0 in their first round series against the competitive Milwaukee Bucks.
But it's not Rose's 34 points that's impressive--Derrick Rose can score 30 on crutches given enough shots. It's that he went 12 of 23 from the floor to do it. In game 1 of this series, Rose scored 23 points on 9 of 16 shooting. It's the efficiency that makes the Bulls a contender.
