Bulls vs. Bucks preseason game recap: Rose and starters thrive towards first win

With Mike Dunleavy out for the game, the Bulls Saturday night starting lineup of Rose/McDermott/Butler/Gibson/Noah fared very well in their trip (slightly) north, ultimately securing their first win of the preseason. It may have been a bit harder to secure that expected, with Jimmy Butler playing 36 minutes and a lineup of he and Pau Gasol (30 min) to close out the lowly Bucks, but you have to think Thibs wasn't going to let this one go after making them practice approximately 47 hours in the week leading up to it. The great news is that the starters, and Derrick Rose in particular, looked...

Derrick Rose finds range as Bulls beat Bucks

MILWAUKEE — At least for one night, all the talk about the cursed FIBA basketball and Derrick Rose’s summer of poor shooting seemed to be in the rearview mirror, getting more distant by the day. Thanks to 16 points on 5-for-10 shooting, including 3-for-4 from three-point range, Rose turned in his best performance of the preseason, and the Bulls beat the upstart Milwaukee Bucks 91-85 on Saturday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. It was a far cry from last month,...

Jabari Parker goes from porker to Bucks’ hope

MILWAUKEE — It wasn’t the most flattering scouting report given by Derrick Rose. Asked a year ago to talk about his fondest memories of fellow Simeon alum Jabari Parker, Rose said, “He was a chubby, fat little kid when I was in high school playing with us.’’ On Saturday, that “fat little kid’’ was playing against Rose and the Bulls. Picked No. 2 overall in the 2014 draft, Parker, who played a year at Duke, is in the embryonic stage of trying to turn...

Rose: It will be 'weird' to face Jabari

MILWAUKEE -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is excited about facing fellow Simeon Career Academy alum, and Milwaukee Bucks rookie, Jabari Parker, for the first time as a professional Saturday night, but Rose admits that it's going to be a 'weird' experience. "It's going to be weird at first," Rose told ESPNChicago.com after Saturday's shootaround. "I've never been on the court with him. But at the same time, it should be exciting. I haven't seen none of their games, I haven't seen him play in a long time because I just haven't been watching film like that or I haven't been watching games...

Derrick Rose back at practice 'doing well'

CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose practiced on Friday after sitting out Thursday's practice because of lower body soreness, according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. "He practiced," Thibodeau said. "He's doing well." Rose is expected to play Saturday when the Bulls take on the Milwaukee Bucks. Thibodeau was non-committal regarding exactly how much Rose would play. Rose played 14 minutes in the Bulls' first two preseason games earlier this week. Parker on the horizon: Saturday's game against the Bucks marks the first time Thibodeau will see Chicago product Jabari Parker in NBA action.

Derrick Rose sits out Bulls practice

Derrick Rose was held out of Bulls practice on Thursday, but before panic begins, it was a planned day off. The 2011 MVP had “general lower body soreness’’ after playing in back-to-back preseason games on Monday and Tuesday. According to coach Tom Thibodeau, Rose was still scheduled to practice on Friday, and play the five preseason games the team has over the next eight days. “Yeah, if he can go, he’ll play,’’ Thibodeau said. “Just take it day by...

Bulls give Derrick Rose a day off

CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose did not practice Thursday after being given a rest day for lower body soreness, according to Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. Rose, who has played in both preseason games, has looked aggressive, albeit a little rusty, as he makes his way back from a torn medial meniscus in his right knee. Teammates have been impressed by his play and Thibodeau didn't sound concerned about his status. "He's got a little soreness," Thibodeau said.

Derrick Rose: It's all coming together

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Derrick Rose continues to feel good about his progress as he makes his way back from knee surgery yet again. The former MVP said he had no soreness after playing in his second consecutive game against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday, and he is confident in how his game is progressing. "It's all just coming to me," Rose said. "I wouldn't say there's one area that's better than another. It just takes playing. Going out there and actually getting game-time minutes under your belt.

Derrick Rose has no FGs, but finds silver lining in Bulls’ OT loss

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Derrick Rose didn’t connect on a field goal Tuesday night, which might be reason to panic if it were a regular-season game. But in the Bulls’ 111-109 overtime loss to the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills — their second of back-to-back preseason games — the location of Rose’s shots was far more important and telling than any preseason point total. Eight free-throw attempts — the result of penetrating the paint...

Derrick Rose has no field goals, six points in Bulls’ OT loss

AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—Derrick Rose didn’t connect on a field goal Tuesday night, which would cause reason to panic if it were a regular-season game. But when the Bulls lost 111-109 in overtime to the Pistons in the second of back to back preseason games Tuesday at the Palace of Auburn Hills, the location of Rose’s shots was entirely more telling of how quickly his game has returned. Even more so, his six free-throws made were proof Tuesday that any fear that he...

Bulls vs. Pistons preseason final score: Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler shine in Bulls loss

With Joakim Noah sitting this one out and Derrick Rose only playing 14 minutes, the second preseason game of the season was very likely not to provide much entertainment. And it really struggled to, as the Bulls went though extended garbage time and eventually losing to the Detroit Pistons in OT, a scenario which should be illegal during the preseason. Leading off with Rose: he did not have close to the red-hot start that opened up his preseason, as he didn't make a single field goal in his time on the floor. He was still aggressive though and didn't look slowed, just was not able to look...

Derrick Rose says his shot ‘can’t get any worse’

Hours before tonight’s preseason tip-off against Washington, Derrick Rose acknowledged that playing for USA Basketball this summer might have been the low-point of his career on the court.

Derrick Rose on his Team USA shooting: Can't get any worse

CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose insists he isn't feeling any extra pressure as he gets ready to don a Chicago Bulls uniform at the United Center for the first time in almost a year during Monday night's preseason opener against the Washington Wizards. "I'm not that anxious," Rose said after Monday's shootaround. "I think playing in the USA games calmed my nerves a little bit. So I'm just ready to play. I've been preparing for this for a long time and ya'll should be able to see it.
