Derrick Rose had a rocky return, scoring nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with two assists and four turnovers in 19 minutes.
That opened the door for Victor Oladipo and the lowly Magic to steal a win from the Bulls.
Chicago’s defense just isn’t what it used to be, though there’s hope it’ll return to form as everyone gets healthy. That will clearly take time, though Oladipo deserves more credit than the Bulls deserve blame for this play.
On the bright side, despite Joakim Noah’s wishes, Chicago is now fourth in the Eastern Conference – which could create an easier playoff road. Would you rather face the Wizards in the first round and the Hawks if you win or the Bucks in the first round and the Cavaliers if you win?
