Inside the Paint: The Night of the Living Rose

The home team will be one the left side of the scores, kind of like how they do it in boxscores.

San Antonio 85 Chicago 92: Despite Tim Duncan scoring 28 points and grabbing 18 rebounds, the Spurs lost to a balanced Bulls team. Derrick Rose showed no effects of having a bad ankle while dishing out seven assists to go along with 13 points. Antonio McDyess was your worst player of the night coming off the bench to play in 16 minutes scoring 1 point, 2 personnel fouls, 1 turnover, and 3 rebounds. That's some Basketbawful worthy stuff right there. Rose though looked really good last night as evidence by this block.

97 Denver 94 Portland: Poor Greg Oden. He's this generations Sam Bowie. And his looks haven't helped him either. Oden missed a pair of free throws with 4.6 seconds left that would have put Portland ahead. Poor guy just can't catch a break. The biggest story of the night was Carmelo Anthony's performance. Anthony scored 41 points and 19 of those points came in the fourth quarter. After watching that fourth quarter last night, Carmelo and the Nuggets have that look of a team that could win a championship. They still need a low post scorer and a head coach that isn't a head case like George Karl.
