Unexpected Turn for the Bulls
By Aish Abid
Despite the Chicago Bull’s 103-91 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, the famous Chicago guard, Derrick Rose was helped off the court late in the opening playoff victory. The star will miss the rest of the post-season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Rose landed awkwardly on his left leg and was forced to leave, with only two minutes remaining in the game. This could potentially be an injury that changes everything for the Chicago Bulls, although the Bulls have managed to lock up the number 1 spot in the Eastern conference standings even with Rose out for 27 games due to injuries throughout the regular season. This afternoon, Rose was able to score 23 points and 9 assists. Unfortunately, Rose’s season came to an end after crumbling down on court. Rose was taken to the hospital right after the devastating fall where MRI results were confirmed. Will the Chicago Bulls be able to carry out and continue to play strong without their reigning MVP? We find out Tuesday May,1 as the playoffs continue to game 2.
