Did you hear that loud gasp coming out of Chicago on Wednesday night? That was the sound of millions and millions of Bulls fans holding their breath as Derrick Rose laid writhing in pain on the floor in San Antonio holding his knee. Fortunately, though, he turned out to be just fine. And so did the Bulls, who won all four of their games this week to start the second half of the season off right. And, as long as D-Rose stays healthy, we have no reason to believe that that success won't continue.—Chris Yuscavage
