CHICAGO — Derrick Rose scored Chicago’s last seven points to help the Bulls hold off the determined Memphis Grizzlies 99-96 and stretch their lead atop the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

Rose nailed two free throws with 2 1/2 minutes to play to give the Bulls the lead. Then he drove past Tony Allen and scored over Marc Gasol with 10 seconds left.

Rose drew a foul on the play and made the resulting free throw as Bulls fans chanted “MVP” — a nod to Rose’s Most Valuable Player-caliber season. More >>
