Absent Derrick Rose, Bulls become Pacers


Similarities between the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers

Without their superstar, Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls suddenly look a lot like the Indiana Pacers, another gritty team from the Midwest built by drafting well and adding a few key free agent signings. Both teams will have to rely on team defense, ball movement and a deep collection of talented players -- though no superstar -- to make a run in this year’s playoffs.
