Bulls come through in Charlotte, clinch playoff spot


By Derek S. Smith, for NBA.com

CHARLOTTE (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Chicago Bulls knew that all they needed for a playoff berth was a win. Wednesday night they showed they belonged in the playoffs.

Derrick Rose scored 27 points and Joakim Noah grabbed 13 rebounds while adding 21 points as the Bulls blitzed past the Charlotte Bobcats 98-89 at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Chicago, which has survived an injury-plagued season, finished 7-3 down the stretch to outplay the Toronto Raptors for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

"Players win games," Chicago coach Vinny Del Negro said. "I'm very proud of the way the guys have hung together all year through a lot of things. We just gutted it out tonight."

The Bulls finish 41-41 for the second straight season and get the opportunity to play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the playoffs while Charlotte finished seventh and will play Orlando in its first-ever postseason appearance.

Chicago came out of the gate ready to play. The Bulls scored the first eight points of the game and never looked back.

"We had great energy early and really got after it defensively," Del Negro said. "It was a great effort by our guys to hang tough and get a huge victory."

Chicago connected on 13-of-22 shots in the opening quarter and led by as many as 13 points. Noah set the tone early for Chicago with 10 points and six rebounds in the first.

"To be in this position," Noah said, "it means a lot to me and a lot to my teammates. Even when times were hard, we never really let down. We always believed in each other. It's a great feeling and we deserved it."

Rose kept the Bulls in the driver's seat in the second quarter as Chicago cruised to a 14-point lead at the intermission.

"It feels good," Rose said, "like we're supposed to be here. We've had some ups and downs, but we fought through it and we're in the playoffs."

Gerald Wallace led a comeback attempt in the third quarter for the Bobcats. Charlotte got within seven points, 65-58, but was never able to inch closer.

Larry Brown sat his starters to begin the fourth quarter and the Bulls again began to pull away. Chicago opened the quarter with an 8-2 run and cruised down the stretch.

Pre-game Coach Brown spoke about the dilemma facing his team Wednesday. He felt a strong need to put his best team forward because of the importance of the game for Chicago. However he also knew the importance of keeping his players healthy for their upcoming playoff run.

Brown saw his worst case scenario pop-up in the second quarter. Starting center Tyson Chandler suffered a right pointer and left elbow contusion and did not return to the game. Chandler also received an x-ray on his elbow which was negative.

"It kind of changes your whole attitude about games like this," Brown said of Chandler's injury. "When you see him go down rolling around you don't feel so good about having to play this game."

The Bobcats played the remainder of the half with a lineup made of mostly reserves and once the game was out of hand in the fourth played a similar line-up.

"I'm thrilled we got into the playoffs," Brown added. "There's a whole new feeling in town. This is what you play for and I'm thrilled that we have a chance to play in the playoffs."
