Thats just the type of guy he is, Butler said. He wants the pressure on him. He produces. He produced. I think were going to keep on going back to him and hes going to do the same thing every night.Chicago, which has won three straight, got Rose and Taj Gibson back after each missed two games. Rose was ill and Gibson was out with an ankle injury.I felt good. I was kind of surprised. I wasnt as fatigued as I thought I would be missing a couple of days, Rose said.Roses jumper over Kyle Lowry put the Bulls up 106-100 with 4:12 left. He put away the game with a 3-pointer to make it 118-105 with 1:17 left.The Eastern Conference-leading Raptors wanted to make a statement in Chicago after losing earlier this season to the Bulls at home.Weve been hearing about it all week, the last couple of days. They wanted to play us, we beat them there and they wanted to come here and get revenge. Tonight I think was a big game for us, Rose said.Lowry scored 34 points and Jonas Valanciunas finished with 20 for Toronto, which led by 12 in the third quarter. Lowry scored 18 points in the fourth.We didnt play defence and they executed extremely well, Lowry said. Derrick Rose looked like his old self and he played extremely well. They executed extremely well. Forty-nine points, give them credit. Whatever play they called they got good shots, and they got where they wanted to get on the floor. But we didnt give them any pushback. Thats one thing we have to make sure we do from now on.After Lowrys runner gave the Raptors a one-pooint lead, Chicago scored six straight to make it 100-95. Brandon Kintzler Jersey. .

Like all of us, we get a little older and wiser and smarter, Casey said of the five-year veteran. Hopefully, thats the case with him, that hes matured.Bulls: Rose played in 10 straight games before getting sick. Hes missed 10 games this season with various injuries and illness. In Derricks case, it was good where he was stringing some games together. Unfortunately, he got sick and now we have to hope he can pick up where he left off, coach Tom Thibodeau said.HE SAID ITCasey on Butler: Ive had a man-crush on him for a while now. Hes a strong, physical kid and now hes knocking down shots, handling the ball and hes just developed into an all-around, All-Star type player. Hes one of those kids you really admire because hes made a lot of who he was coming out of college. I dont think anybody projected him to be where he is now.TRAINERS ROOMBulls guard Kirk Hinrich left the game with a strained left hamstring in the second half.UP NEXTRaptors: Visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.Bulls: Visit Washington on Tuesday.
