The Bulls keep winning
But could be playing better
Even Rose says so
 
Derrick is happy, but cautious ... 
[T]he Bulls outlasted the Pacers 96-90 in an ugly, physical game that gave them a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 3 is Thursday night in Indianapolis.
Rose scored 14 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter to help the Bulls pull away in the final period for the second straight game and survive 22 turnovers and 38.6 percent shooting.
"We're very happy to be here and wouldn't take anything back," Rose said. "But our play has to get better. We have to be more smooth and efficient, especially on the defensive end. We have to try harder. I feel like we're going to get things together pretty quickly.
"It's always good to win in this league. It's very hard. But the way we're winning, we need to sharpen up things, especially on the defensive end so we can control the game more instead of us having to play crazy at the end of games. We need to take control of the game early so it can be more comfortable."
