Derrick Rose relearned what can't be taught at the FIBA World Cup

His numbers might have been ugly, but gaudy statistics were never the point of the World Cup for Rose. You've probably had one of these weekend nights before, the ones that start off with a few friends sifting through YouTube videos before someone inevitably starts typing D-E-R-R-I-C-K R-O-S-E in the search bar. As Rose has played only 10 meaningful NBA games over the last 28 months, these YouTube sessions fill a significant void. This is where the Derrick Rose of old lives in all of his glory, with hyperspeed in the open court, reverse jackknife dunks on fast breaks and perilous drives to...

Derrick Rose scoreless; Team USA wins World Cup gold

It wasn’t always pretty for Bulls guard Derrick Rose in the 2014 FIBA World Cup. In fact, there might have been more ugly moments with the way he played. But when Rose returns to U.S. soil in the next few days, he will do so knowing his two surgically repaired knees are good to go for the start of what will be a very important season for the Bulls. And he also will be sporting a second gold medal. Despite Rose going scoreless for the second game in the tournament,...

Derrick Rose scoreless as Team USA repeats as World Cup champion

It wasn’t always pretty for Derrick Rose. As a matter of fact, there might have actually been a bit more ugly moments with the way he played in the 2014 FIBA World Cup. But when he returns to U.S. soil in the next few days, he will do so knowing his two surgically-repaired knees are good to go for the start of what will be a very important season for the point guard and his Bulls teammates, and Rose will also be sporting a second gold medal. Despite going...

U.S., Rose go for gold vs. Serbia

MADRID -- Derrick Rose is going for his second straight gold medal Sunday in the FIBA World Cup final vs. Serbia.

Paxson happy with Rose's 'explosiveness'

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls are keeping tabs on Derrick Rose's play in the FIBA World Cup in Spain, but they're not admitting to counting his missed shots. That's tough to do when you're lighting candles and saying multi-denominational prayers for his good health. Coming off the bench for first time ever, Rose is averaging 5.4 points in 17.3 minutes a game, shooting 27.3 percent (15-for-55) and has made just 1-of-17 3-point tries through eight games.

Derrick Rose reverts to passive style, shoots poorly in Team USA blowout

Just like that, the lid was back on. After an apparent breakout game in the FIBA World Cup quarterfinals against Slovenia, Derrick Rose (four points) was back to his passive ways, shooting 1-for-8 from the field in Team USA’s 96-68 semifinal victory Thursday over Lithuania in Barcelona. Thanks to 16 points in the third quarter by James Harden and a game-high 18 points from Kyrie Irving, Team USA will play in the gold-medal game Sunday against the winner of the...

Derrick Rose held to 4 points, but Team USA headed to final

Just like that, the lid was back on. After having what appeared to be his breakout game of the FIBA World Cup in Tuesday’s win over Slovenia, it was once again Derrick Rose back to his suddenly passive self on Thursday, scoring just four points on 1-for-8 shooting in the 96-68 semifinal win over Lithuania. Thanks to 16 third-quarter points by James Harden, as well as a team-high 18 points from Kyrie Irving, Team USA will now play in the gold medal game on Sunday,...

Team USA vs. Lithuania recap: Derrick Rose goes 1-of-8, Americans advance to World Cup final

Rose was aggressive against Lithuania, but he missed several layups and couldn't make it two strong efforts in a row. Team USA played a pretty dreadful first half against Lithuania in the semifinals of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, but in typical fashion, the Americans pulled away in the second half to earn a 96-68 victory and a spot in the World Cup final. James Harden and Kyrie Irving led the charge for Team USA in the second half after Klay Thompson carried them in the first. While last game was pretty much all sunshine and rainbows for Derrick Rose, the same can't be said about this...

Team USA vs. Lithuania World Cup semifinals open game thread

Derrick Rose guns for a second straight strong game while Team USA guns for a spot in the World Cup Final. With Spain's stunning defeat at the hands of France, Team USA's best competition at the World Cup has been eliminated. It would be pretty stunning if the Americans didn't claim gold now, but as we saw with Spain yesterday, anything can happen. Lithuania is a talented squad that features Toronto Raptors big man Jonas Valanciunas, who leads the team in scoring, rebounding and blocks. For Team USA, Derrick Rose looks to put forth his second straight strong performance. Rose had his best...

Derrick Rose leads Team USA to World Cup semis vs. Lithuania

Bulls guard Derrick Rose promised a different game was coming. “I found it now,’’ Rose told reporters Monday. “You’ll see [Tuesday].’’ Not a bad call. In his best performance in the FIBA World Cup, Rose shot 6-for-10 from the field for 12 points, had five assists and grabbed three rebounds to help Team USA beat Slovenia 119-76 in Barcelona to set up a semifinal matchup against Lithuania. Rose was held scoreless in the round of 16 against Mexico, and...

Team USA vs. Slovenia: Derrick Rose plays best game of World Cup in 119-76 victory

Rose had 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting and man this feels good. Prior to Tuesday's quarterfinal game against Slovenia, Derrick Rose hadn't been very good at the World Cup. Rose vowed to be better against Slovenia, and lo and behold, the Bulls star played his best game of the tournament in a 119-76 victory. Rose was aggressive immediately upon checking into the game, and although he missed his first layup, he stayed with the play and followed up with a make. Moments later, this happened: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. There were several more moments like this: Rose's jumper was still a...

Derrick Rose leads Team USA to World Cup semifinals, past Slovenia

Derrick Rose promised “a different game’’ was coming. “I think I found it now,’’ the Bulls star insisted to reporters on Monday. “You’ll see [Tuesday].’’ Not a bad call. In what was undoubtedly his best performance for Team USA since FIBA World Cup play began, Rose not only shot 6-for-10 from the field for 12 points, but handed out five assists and grabbed three rebounds, helping USA Basketball reach Thursday’s semifinals against Lithuania by...
