“I’m happy that I got the teammates that I have, the coaching staff that I have, and like I said, I really believe that I’m built for this shit,” said Derrick Rose after a late game turnover and allowing the Bucks’ Jerryd Bayless to make a game-winner at the buzzer.
“I put that all on me. I just wasn’t paying attention to the ball,” Rose said.
Rose’s coach, Tom Thibodeau, didn’t want to put all the blame on Rose for the Bulls loss.
“I’m not going to put it on that last play. There were a lot of other plays throughout the course of the game,” Thibodeau said. “When you turn the ball over like that you’re not going to have success.”
The Bulls as a team turned the ball over 28 times – 8 by Rose.
