Derrick Rose could have, probably should have, just passed to Jimmy Butler on this play but Rose was in attack mode against the Celtics and went for and made the acrobatic layup.  He would make a lot of other shots to on his way to a game-high 29 points but did his job of dishing too and racked up a game-high 10 assists in a 16 point win.

“Derrick was great on both sides of the ball and that’s huge for us,” Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said. “What you’re seeing is Derrick is getting stronger and stronger, he’s gaining more confidence, and he’s getting that edge back.”

Rose also was 1 3-pointer shy of his career-high of 6 and scored 20 of his 29 in the 2nd half.

As for Butler, he got his shots too and finished with 22 points.
