DeMar DeRozan is really coming up as the saviour for the Chicago Bulls especially in the fourth quarter. The signing of DeMar DeRozan which was named as the worst signing of this season on paper has turned out to be the best one so far as DeMar has carried the Bulls all the way through every challenge that comes in the way. The Chicago Bulls are currently ranked as the first seed and leading the eastern conference with the record of 24 wins and 10 losses with a 7 game winning streak and all thanks to DeMar DeRozan.
After registering a win against the Indian Pacers as DeMar DeRozan came up in clutch and delivered a buzzer- beating three pointer which also won the game for the Chicago Bulls. He was back at it in the recent match-up of Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena. The Chicago Bulls struggled for the majority of the game while chasing the lead the Washington Wizards got ahead with. The Chicago Bulls were trailing behind 12 points at the half but as soon as the second half started chasing the lead off Bulls were back in big numbers and turned the game into a head to head close contested match-up.
No matter what the lead was since DeMar DeRozan had other plans and was very successful in running those. DeMar has hit two game winning buzzer beaters in the past 24 hours for the Chicago Bulls and is the only player to do so in leagues history on back to back days and both the games looked impossible to win in the final possession and especially the one against the Washington Wizards since the Wizards are the best clutch team in the NBA in the last minutes of a close contested match-up.
