The Chicago Bulls walked into Salt Lake City and walked out victorious, the Bulls beat the Jazz 91-86. It was supposed to be a great match-up between two All Star Point Guards, that never really materialized as one thrived and the other struggled. Derrick Rose got the best of Deron Williams tonight scoring 29 points and dishing out 7 assists. Williams didn’t have a great shooting night going 5 of 13 from the floor, he still managed to recorded another double-double with 11 points and 12 dimes. The Bulls had a couple of former Jazz players in Carlos Boozer, Kyle Korver, and Ronnie Brewer. They all made their presence felt throughout the game, Boozer had the most of the former Utah players with 14 points. Ronnie Brewer’s might have made the biggest play of them all though, by stealing the ball from Deron Williams and hit the free throws to clinch the game for Chicago. Utah was down 3 at the time that Brewer made the big play, the Jazz got some big performances from their bigs. Paul Milsap, Boozers former back up had 20 points and 14 boards. Al Jefferson had a big night as well with 26 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 blocked shots!! It really was a close game down to the end, Brewer’s steal was HUGE for the Bulls!! Utah is now 31-23, they remain a half game up on Denver and 3.5 back of the Thunder. Utah’s home record is now 17-11, they get a chance to improve that record on Friday when they play host to Steve Nash and the Suns. Deron Williams doesn’t get a break, he played Derek Rose last night and has Nash coming to town Friday. What a treat Jazz fans get, 2 of the best point guards in the NBA played last night and will play on Friday. D-Will needs to regain his shooting touch, the Suns aren’t exactly known for their defense and Nash shouldn’t be too tough to get by for D-Will. Utah needs the win so they can continue to narrow the margin between them and the Thunder!!
