|Playoffs Look a Lot More Rose-y for Chicago
|ATLANTA (AP) -- After perhaps the best game of an already dynamic career, Derrick Rose has no big plans for an off day in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Grab some dinner. Hang out with teammates. Watch the championship bout between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley.
His pick? Pacquiao, of course.
Speaking of guys on top of their game, Rose turned what had been a close series clearly in Chicago's favor with his one-man beatdown of the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3.
He knocked down jumpers. He was a blur darting into the lane. He was simply unstoppable, going for a career-high 44 points in the 99-82 victory Friday night.
The top-seeded Bulls are back in control of the series with a 2-1 lead. Game 4 is Sunday night, and it's a must win for the Hawks.
