Cavaliers’ Iman Shumpert, Bulls’ Derrick Rose share common injury history

CLEVELAND: It’s only fitting that Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose are sharing a playoff court this week.

Watching four defenders at times chase Derrick Rose around the court Monday left the distinct impression the Cavs’ plan was to prevent Rose...
