Derrick Rose with the crossover & dunk in 59 point win over Finland

The field goal everybody is talking about in USA’s 114-59 win over Finland isn’t the non-existing field goal Finland scored in the 2nd quarter but the dunk by Derrick Rose in the 2nd. ¬†With a little more than 2 minutes left before half-time, Rose (12pts) crossed a defender and went strong to the basket for a 2 handed dunk that had the internet screaming “Rose is back.”

Hopefully he will be back on the court, playing at this level, tomorrow when USA plays Turkey.
