Everyone seemed to have a different explanation on why the Bulls blew a 16-point, fourth-quarter lead in a 103-101 loss to the Suns last night.
For Derrick Rose, questionable play-calling might have been to blame.
Rose’s comment came after the Bulls allowed 42 points in the fourth quarter and blew an 11-point lead in the final seven minutes. Rose had six of his 14 points in the fourth quarter.
Someone should have called for a box out on the last possession. Mirza Teletovic faced little resistance as he grabbed an offensive board and put it back for the winning bucket with less than a second remaining.

Phoenix had lost four straight games and was playing the back end of a back-to-back and for the fifth time in seven nights. But the Suns dominated the fourth quarter as Bulls players appeared frustrated with each other.
Chicago (11-7) has now lost consecutive games for the first time this season.
