Oooh, that is a slick little move, there. The ball-fake to freeze Timofey Mozgov, the little half-Eurostep toward the middle of the lane, the midair adjustment as Mozgov recovers to contest. And then, what in the damn hell. Did the Earth shift 18 inches off its normal orbital path while Rose was in midair?

The Bulls are trailing the putrid Cavs, by a bunch, in the third quarter in Cleveland. It's a terrible basketball game. LeBron and Rose have like four airballs between them. Kevin Love is wandering around like a senile old dude waylaid en route to Florida. Rose and Pau Gasol are 3-for-20 for 11 points between them. It's sad and weird and I don't like it, man.
