The Chicago Bulls are now up 3-2 over the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Semifinals after their impressive 95-83 victory last night in the Windy City. Derrick Rose played like the league MVP in Game 5, going 11 of 24 from the field while scoring 33 points and dishing out 9 assists.

If you ask Rose, or coach Tom Thibodeau for that matter, what’s the biggest reason why their team won? Defense. What will be the key to winning game 6 in Atlanta?

“Play defense. That’s our whole game plan is playing defense,” explained Rose during postgame. ”Our offense will be there, but if we continue to help each other, rebound the ball and run, I think that we should be in good shape.”

Game 6 in Atlanta is Thursday, with tip-off scheduled for 7:00. If the Bulls win, it will mark their first trip to the Conference Finals since Michael Jordan led them there in 1998.
