Chicago Bulls Score
April 17, 2011 by staff
Rosa tried four free throws the whole team of Indiana Pacers 104-99 on Saturday in Chicago the victory.
Rose was 19-of-21 from the free throw line. The Pacers were 11-for-17.
The Pacers were frustrated with the number of calls on his way to Rose, but were careful in their criticism of the referees.
“I do not know if I can answer that question,” said interim coach Frank Vogel Pacers when asked about Rose free throws. “It helps that leads to the basket and it is impossible to take a charge. The league rule says to go up and jump on you, and then there must be a non-call.
“That’s what we’re trying to teach our kids to do. We’re trying to go up, win without knocking and being a big body in the paint.”
The Pacers did not have a player attempted more than four free throws.
“We have standards, you have to go up,” said Pacers Danny Granger. “You can not go forward or sideways. Twenty free lance, that’s a lot of free throws. We must find a way to keep him off the track.”
The Pacers tried to send a message to Rosa about driving to the basket.
The veteran Jeff Foster was a lack hard for him in the first half. Rose took offense to it and started walking toward Foster in frustration.
“It is the responsibility of someone to strengthen and keep score,” said Foster. “I made a hard foul to ensure that failed (the basket, too).”
Pacers Rose Tyler Hansbrough fouled on a hard drive in the fourth quarter.
Bulls forward Luol Deng was a technique to go after Hansbrough.
“I knew it would be physical, but still tried to get to the basket,” said Rose. “In game one at the end, if you feel it is a dirty game that has to say something. If not, are just going to continue. Luol and reinforced my teammates and did the right thing.”
The Pacers say the sellout United Center crowd played a factor in their defensive errors late in the game.
“We’re calling our defense against Rose, but I think the boys were able to hear, so we’re going to have to adjust some things,” said Pacers center Roy Hibbert. “I’m screaming and yelling, and the kids watch Rose could not hear.”
Rose had seven points, two rebounds and one assist during the last minutes, 30 seconds to play.
“It was very difficult, especially when the crowd went crazy,” said Granger. “You do not hear anything. On defense you’re talking about, but as your lips move and not hear anything.”
