“I just appreciate everything,” said Derrick Rose after scoring 25 points in GM1. “getting back on the floor and just every aspect of basketball. It’s allowed me to change my life and my family’s life. I owe so much to this sport. I’m just trying to roll with it.”
And Rose and the Bulls were rolling on Monday night as they came out victorious in Cleveland despite 30 points from Kyrie Irving and 19 & 15 from LeBron James.
“Derrick was making the right plays every time,” said Butler who contributed 2o points and hit a dagger with 30 seconds left.
The Bulls did get a scare a few seconds later when Rose collided with Tristan Thompson and then grabbed his shoulder, but Rose said he wasn’t concerned with the injury which means bad news for the Cavs.
