Bulls 92, Pacers 87

Bulls 92, Pacers 87: A workmanlike road victory over the Pacers on April 25 might not seem like much. But the victory marked just the 15th time in 66 games that the starting lineup of Derrick Rose, Richard Hamilton, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah played together. That the Bulls went 13-2 in those games makes the mind wander as to what that unit could have accomplished in the postseason if healthy. Rose’s 10 points, seven assists and just one turnover in 26 minutes, 30 seconds also didn’t seem much. But his postgame declaration now sounds eerie in what was to come. “I’m going to keep being aggressive and I’m going to be all right,” he said.
