Boozer: Get Rose the Ball, Get Out of Way
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau looks like Sir Georg Solti when he orchestrates even the most ordinary of defensive possessions, with multiple options to address every possible nuance that might make a difference. But when the Bulls have the ball, the game is tied and 18 seconds are on the clock, he has the easiest job in America.
‘‘This is the play: Get the ball to D-Rose, and everybody else get out of the way,’’ Carlos Boozer said. ‘‘And it works every time.’’
Maybe not every time. But it worked Wednesday night, when Derrick Rose dribbled down the last 18 seconds of the clock in a tie game with the Milwaukee Bucks before pulling up to make a 20-foot jumper over Brandon Jennings at the buzzer that gave the Bulls a 106-104 victory before another partisan Bulls crowd at the Bradley Center.
