Derrick Rose Puts On Another MVP Performance against the Milwaukee Bucks

David Stern, you need to end the MVP race right now.

Just give it to Derrick Rose.

Rose showed us why he should be the favorite to win the NBA's Most Valuable Player trophy. He not only scored 30 points, but also recorded 17 assists in a 95-87 Chicago Bulls victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

It was not just the statistics that made this an MVP performance. It was also the meaning behind them.

Rose was not going to let the Bulls lose, even if they were trailing by double digits, as they did in the Bradley Center. To be the MVP, sometimes you need to carry a team to a win, even if it doesn't look its that team's night.

This was not Chicago's night, until D-Rose made it his night. As a result of his night, the Bulls are now 2.5 games ahead of the Boston Celtics for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

The Bad News in Chicago...

The Blackhawks lost 2-1 to the Anaheim Ducks, falling to eighth place in the Western Conference.

The Ducks have a one-point lead and have the tiebreaker over Chicago. With eight games left in their regular season, the Hawks lead by two points over the Dallas Stars for the eighth spot.
