NBA News - 20 Points From Chapu In Bulls Win

Orlando Magic 102 Toronto Raptors 87

Despite being given a 27:24 time play from the bench, Carlos DELFINO wasn’t able to contribute and execute on his offensive play. He only manages 4 points plus 9 rebounds & 3 assists.

Chicago Bulls 112 Memphis Grizzlies 97

Finally a win for the Bulls to re-ignite their fight for a place in the play-offs, after New Jersey Nets (currently occupying the 8th position in the Eastern Conference) also lost today.

Andres NOCIONI has been relegated to the bench in favour of British superstar Luol DENG but certainly came up with the most sparks to help the Bulls win this game.

He posted 20 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists & 1 block shot.

San Antonio Spurs 81 New Jersey Nets 70

A low-key performance from both sides but none of that is going to stop the defending champions from preserving its longest winning streak of the season.

With the most of the offense duty was handled by Tim DUNCAN, Manu GINOBILI only manages 12 points but contributed plenty at the back end to ensure this win. He had 7 rebounds, 3 assists, a game high of 4 steals & 1 block shot.

The battle for the center position is also heating up. Despite being placed on the bench Fabricio OBERTO will relish every moment that was given to him when called upon.

It was tight affair between him and Kurt THOMAS but OBERTO falling just a bit short of contribution compare to THOMAS. He only posted 4 rebounds and 1 assist.

I've heard about Oberto going to the bench. I think Pop is trying to prepare Kurt Thomas for things to come. Fabricio Oberto is still going to be important because of his superb pick-&-roll teamup with Manu Ginobili. =)
