Bulls' Stats With and Without Rose

A look at the Bulls' numbers this season with and without Derrick Rose.

Bulls' Stats With and Without Rose


On the surface, Derrick Rose's unfortunate season-ending injury would seem to have a huge effect on the Bulls' first-round series with the Sixers. But Chicago did play 40% of their season without the reigning MVP and played those 27 games to a .667 winning percentage that would have been good enough for second in the conference.

Statistically, the Bulls' offense lost a little more than four points a game without Rose and saw its shooting percentages drop by about two points on both two- and three-point attempts.

Here are the Bulls' regular season numbers in games Rose played, in games he didn't, and the differences:

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
