Bulls

The M-V-P chants Saturday night at the United Center weren't for Derrick Rose or Anthony Davis. They were for Jimmy Butler, who continued to state his case as one of the NBA's most valuable players.
Anthony Davis showed his hometown how good he's become since departing for Kentucky four years ago. In Year 3 with the Pelicans, he's an MVP candidate, and he showed why Saturday vs. the Bulls.
The Bulls have been a rebounding force over the past 15 games, and it's a mix of the team's hard work and defensive philosophy that has the Bulls on a six-game winning streak.
