Derrick Rose scores 18 in return vs Jazz
Derrick Rose made his return against Utah on Monday after missing the Bulls’ last 4 games. In 25 minutes, he scored 18 points, with 3 3-pointers, and dished out a team-high 5 assists to help the Bulls survive a second half scare which saw the Jazz outscore the Bulls 36-22 in the 3rd quarter.
“It’s just a learning experience,” Bulls point guard Derrick Rose said. “When we get a team down like that, we got to learn how to keep them down. Know the strategy and know the plays where we’re going to get a good shot. But, if anything, our defense always has to be there. That’s something we got to learn too.”
