Two-Point Diversion: Magic Brain Bulls, D.Rose hurt?

Dwight! SMASH! Tyrus Thomas Shows Up

With Joakim Noah still rocking the suit and tie on the bench as his ailing foot gets better, Dwight Howard used the opportunity to abuse the Noah-less Bulls. Superman led all players with 14 boards while his backup Marcin Gortat, aka, "The Polish Hammer" added another 12 rebounds as Chicago was largely held off the glass all night by the long and athletic Magic. In the Magic's 20 point win with Dwight (aside: He always does THIS against the Bulls...) rending the Bulls interior defense apart one Bull who did step up? The petulant Tyrus Thomas who erupted for 16 points, 6 boards, 4 assists, 2 steals and a block in a fiery show of his athleticism and strength. Tyrus that was the best audition you could give for the trade deadline. Other NBA teams? You'll get a steal in dealing for Tyrus.

This Better Just Be Bruise

If Dwight Howard demolishing the Bulls statistically wasn't enough, the freak of nature did his part to neutralize the Rose Child with a mighty bash that sent Derrick Rose crashing to the hardwood floor. Rose left the game with a bruised hip and is now questionable for the All-Star Game Weekend festivities. [sad face emoticon if this is anything more than a bruise]
