NBA News - Manu Drops 28 & Bulls Move Closer

Chicago Bulls 107 Cleveland Cavaliers 96

Despite another strong effort from Le Bron JAMES, the Bulls manage to get it right this time, securing their first back-to-back win since December.
With this result, they will now move a step closer, just behind New Jersey Nets and will remain as a strong contender for the lucrative eighth play off spot in the Eastern Conference.

Andres NOCIONI had a slow start but eventually found his rhythm in the latter stage of the game posting 11 points & 4 rebounds.

San Antonio Spurs 108 Indiana Pacers 97

Despite having a game high performance, Manu GINOBILI will likely be most remembered for his effort in blocking out his angry coach, Gregg POPOVICH who was heading straight to an official.

"I tried to box him out," Manu said of his unsuccessful attempt to block coach POPOVICH, who was ejected. "I could have done better."

Manu posted 28 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their 11th straight win thus preserving their status as the No.1 team in the Western Conference. He also had 5 rebounds & 3 assists.

Fabricio OBERTO despite the less time play he receive tonight also had productive effort in posting 6 points, 3 rebounds & 2 assists.

Houston Rockets 113 Dallas Mavericks 98

The Rockets took advantage against a Dallas team playing without their maverick, Dirk NOWITZKI to stretch their winning streak to 17 games.
Luis SCOLA was instrumental in both ends of the court as he posted 12 points, a game high of 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals & 2 block shot.

What a season! The emergence of young and extremely talented international players, playing on true championship contenders (mainly in the western conference), only strengthens the upcoming playoffs. Suns, Spurs, Lakers, Hornets, Dallas, Celtics, Pistons, etc.

The NBA, where amazing happens!!!
