San Antonio Spurs
After suffering a rare home loss at the hands of Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs (24-11) return to action today to face the worst team by record in the NBA, the Charlotte Bobcats.
The Bobcats have managed to win four games this season, just four. They’re a team who rank at the bottom in almost every statistical category and are currently on a three game losing streak, with their latest loss coming in Detroit on Thursday.
Case No. 36: Charlotte Bobcats (4-29)
Road record: 2-17. Last 10 games: 1-9
Commendable areas for the Bobcats
Don’t judge a book by its possession of the ball: I was really surprised to find that the Bobcats actually take care of the ball on offense (13.9 turnovers), for being a team with some of the worst offensive statistics overall.
Bismack Blocks: The Bobcats are ranked 4th in the NBA in blocks per game (5.8) behind rookie Bismack Biyombo and Tyrus Thomas, who each average 1.7 blocks per game.

Back on Tuesday night, the Chicago Bulls defeated the New Orleans Hornets by the score of 99-95 but for some reason the home crowd at the United Center decided to boo Bulls point guard Derick Rose.
Why you may ask? Rose was at the free throw line with about five seconds remaining and only needed to make one free throw to give the team up to 100 and give fans in attendance...
We can all agree that Derrick Rose is not cut from the same cloth as most NBA stars. He’s rather soft spoken and isn’t about “the show”. But sometimes, Rose takes things just a little too serious. Case in point, this story from ESPN Chicago.After a brilliant night where led the Bulls to a 99-95 victory over the Bobcats with 32 points and 9 assists, Rose is apologizing for...
There is no question that Pau Gasol is on the trading block. Gasol has already been traded to the Houston Rockets in a three way deal, but David Stern canceled the trade because it wasn’t fair for the league owned New Orleans Hornets. Even last week there was a trade rumor they would send Gasol to Minnesota for Derrick Williams.
Now SheridanHoops.com is reporting that...
In the first six quarters immediately following the All Star Break, the Cavaliers had outscored their opponents 144-135. They'd lose to the Celtics by three on Tuesday though, and then get their doors blown off by the Knicks in the next two quarters on Wednesday. After leading in New York by as many as 17 points late in the first half, the Cavaliers would be outscored 71-42 in...
Derrick Rose scored 29 points and the Chicago Bulls stayed on a roll by cooling off the streaking San Antonio Spurs 96-89 Wednesday night. Rose shook off a scary-looking collision with Tony Parker early that kept the reigning MVP on the floor clutching his right knee for several minutes. But he never left the game and the Bulls became just the second team to win in San Antonio this season.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the few teams to have repeated success frustrating Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls.
Last month's lopsided loss in Philadelphia still bothers the league's reigning MVP.
Rose and the Bulls look to avenge that defeat and avoid losing a fourth straight to the 76ers on Sunday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

SAN ANTONIO -- Derrick Rose and Tony Parker didn't see much of each other during the All-Star game last weekend, but they got close enough Wednesday night to give the Chicago Bulls a scare.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Luol Deng scored a season-high 24 points and Derrick Rose added 19 as the Chicago Bulls won their fifth straight, 112-91 on Friday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were without rookie guard Kyrie Irving.

Steve Nash believes he is showing no lingering effects from a groin injury that caused him to miss two games for the Phoenix Suns. He will likely need to be at full strength if he wants to try to slow down Derrick Rose.
Rose has guided the Chicago Bulls to consecutive wins in Phoenix for the first time in 21 years, and they'll...
President Barack Obama already has told Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose he will attend if Rose leads his team to the NBA Finals. Now Obama is saying that a seventh Bulls' championship "will happen."
