Bulls Vs. Clippers Final Score: Derrick Rose One-Ups Lob City In 114-101 Win

The Chicago Bulls had managed to stay one step ahead of the much-hyped Los Angeles Clippers through the first three quarters on Friday night, but hadn't quite built a substantial lead. Instead, Chicago kept grinding away, outscoring Los Angeles in each quarter to take a six-point lead into the final frame. The matchup seemed like it was destined for some sort of close finish.

Derrick Rose, however, had other ideas. Rose hit another gear in the fourth quarter, taking over the game as the Bulls built up their lead and put it out of reach. Rose was everywhere, creating his own shots, dishing to his teammates and getting to the line as the Bulls pushed their advantage to double-digits. And that's where it ended as Chicago pulled away in the final frame for a 114-101 win over the Lob City Clippers, dropping Chris Paul's new team to 1-2 on the season.

Rose finished with a team-high 29 points and an impressive 16 assists on the nights. In fact, all five Chicago starters were in double-figures, with Luol Deng and Joakim Noah each adding 19 points to go along with Rose's outstanding game. Blake Griffin finished with a game-high 34 points and 13 rebounds in the loss. Chris Paul also nabbed himself a double-double, scoring 15 points and dishing out 14 assists.
