The Bulls defeat the Grizz.

Bulls 99 – Grizzlies 96

Friday night, my friend Michael and I went to the United Center to catch the Chicago Bulls take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Now, I might have told Michael that I couldn’t lose with this match up since at least one of my hometowns would come out victorious, but who are we kidding? I was rooting for my true home team, the Memphis Grizzlies. Heck, I even bravely wore a Grizzlies shirt into the Madhouse on Madison.

Even though Derrick Rose was having an off night (he still scored 24 points), he came through in clutch time, and sealed the Bulls 14th straight home game victory. This team is unbelievable. Still, it is a shame the Grizzlies couldn’t have pulled this one out since they were in control during the majority of the contest. I can attest that the Bulls fan around me were truly stunned by the tough, gritty play of the Grizzlies and were nervous all the way up until the final buzzer. The Grizzlies should prove to be a thorn in someone’s side during the playoffs.
