The Utah Jazz have won six straight and have a realistic shot at getting into the top four in the Western Conference.
With a tough road trip and the NBA trade deadline on the horizon, the Bulls are about to face a decision about whether to build for now or for later.
Dwyane Wade isn't a fan of the NBA's Last Two Minute reports . It's safe to say yesterday's findings won't change his stance on the matter. The NBA announced on Sunday that DeMarcus Cousins was incorrectly called for a foul on Wade in the closing seconds of the Bulls' 102-99 victory over the Kings. With the game tied at 99 and 16 seconds remaining, Wade lost control of the ball while going up for a dunk and missed the attempt. Cousins was trailing on the play and appeared to place his hand on Wade's back after Wade had already lost the ball. Cousins was called for a foul and Wade made one of two free throws, which wound up being the eventual game-winning basket. Per the NBA, Cousins shouldn't have been called for the foul, stating "Cousins (SAC) has his hand on Wade's (CHI) back while he is airborne, but he does not extend his arm and push him and the contact does not affect the shot attempt." For what it's worth, the L2M report also stated that Cousins got away with a travel in the final minute, right before his jumper in the paint put Sacramento up 99-97. After the game a sarcastic Cousins did his best to control his emotions when asked about the foul call against him on Wade. >A rather sarcastic Boogie Cousins: "I think they made the absolute right >call.
