Rejuvenated Chicago Bulls center Pau Gasol dominated the middle like old times against the visiting Denver Nuggets, recording a career-high 9 blocks in a 106-101 victory. Per the Chicago Tribune.
“The energy in the second half was just a lot better,” Thibodeau said of the comeback. “The defense was pretty good. We were a lot more active, reacted to the ball better. Pau was terrific and then I thought the activity of all the bigs in the second half was huge.”
