Following an overtime loss to Minnesota last night – Chicago’s third defeat in five games – Bulls point guard Derrick Rose sounded off about the team’s effort.

“It’s all about effort,” said Rose, who had 11 points on 3-13 shooting. “We’ll get tired of getting our ass whooped one day.”

After Pau Gasol tied the game at 93 with 21 seconds to play in regulation, the Bulls failed to score a single point in overtime, losing 102-93.

Rose’s comments echoed what Jimmy Butler said following Chicago’s 130-105 loss to New Orleans last week.

“We’ve always prided ourself on playing hard and not being pretty,” he said. “Tonight, we were pretty, we were soft. Got our asses whipped.”

The Bulls will look to correct the issues before they travel to Philadelphia to face the 76ers on Monday.
