Bulls looked really good tonight going into the 4th quarter, though a bad final period looked to have ended their winning streak. But due to a crazy-bad TO by the Hornets (when all they had to do was get the ball in and be fouled), they not only allowed the game to go into overtime (after a Deng putback), but also hobbled Chris Paul, who injured his knee on the play.

Great win by the Bulls tonight, who did not have to rely on some kind of insane Rose shooting to stay in the game. Luol Deng had a very strong night (even posting up for multiple possessions in the 3rd), and Brad Miller continues to change the story of his season from 'completely done' to 'second half player'.
