Derrick Rose’s performance was worth the wait

RICK TELANDER: Holy jamoly, I saw Derrick Rose on Friday night! I don’t mean Rose the human. I mean Rose the 2011 NBA most valuable player.

Derrick Rose out duels Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge as Bulls drop Trail Blazers 115-106: Game rewind

Lillard and Aldridge put on a show, but Rose and the Bulls were too much for the Blazers in Chicago.

Derrick Rose looking more like his old self

CHICAGO -- While the rest of the basketball world doubted whether Derrick Rose would ever be the same player he used to be before knee injuries changed the course of his career, the former MVP remained steadfast in the personal belief he had in himself. If he ever had doubts that he would return to being an elite level player, he never aired those out publicly. His game may have changed, his mindset may be different, but his public confidence never wavered.

Bulls vs. Trail Blazers final score: Derrick Rose scores season-high 31 points in 115-106 victory

Derrick Rose and Damian Lillard put on a show in an impressive Bulls victory. The Bulls were on the receiving end of a Trail Blazers piledriver during the Circus Trip, but that game didn't feature Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol or Kirk Hinrich. (Yes, I had to include him.) That trio was back for the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams Friday night, and while Joakim Noah and Doug McDermott (who needs surgery on his right knee) were out for this one, it didn't matter for Chicago. The Bulls pulled out an impressive 115-106 victory, and Derrick Rose was the Derrick Rose the...

Blazers vs. Bulls Final Score: 115-106; Chicago Overpowers Aldridge, Portland

Despite a red-hot night by LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard, Derrick Rose and the Bulls simply overwhelmed the Trail Blazers. In a funny coincidence, the Blazers fell in Chicago to a combination of a Rose and a Duck. LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard had 35, but the Portland Trail Blazers could not overcome a season-best night by Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks, falling at the United Center Friday night, 115-106. Aldridge had a first quarter to remember.  He shot 10-of-12 from the field for 21 points, and had more points in one quarter than he had the entire game versus Minnesota. ...

The latest example of why Wizards and Cavaliers fans will never get along

Watch how an innocent suggestion for peace gets ripped to shreds by rival fans. NBA All-Star balloting got underway yesterday, and as we've explained before, there's no guarantee that John Wall makes it to the All-Star Game this season, despite his stellar play this year. The best way to ensure John Wall makes the All-Star Game is to vote early and vote often for him to get a starting spot in the game. Last year, John Wall had difficulty just getting ahead of Derrick Rose, who didn't play a single game that season. With Rose back, the challenge to get a starting spot is that much more...

Bulls star Derrick Rose feeling healthy, confident

CHICAGO – Derrick Rose had that twinkle in his eyes, that same relentless confidence he had when he won the NBA MVP award what seems like an eternity ago.

Derrick Rose attacks the basket, gets results

During the week, Derrick Rose and Tom Thibodeau differed on how Rose's mindset should be when Rose gets the ball in his hands. As you see in the video above, Rose looked quite a bit more aggressive than he had been. It wasn't 'HE'S BACK' or anything, but a step in the right direction. After the game even Rose himself was channeling his inner Gar: Just trying to let this process work itself out. Trying to find ways in the game while being a point guard, trying to get other guys going, just trying to get a feel for the game and seeing whenever I can attack. I think I'm fighting my way...

Derrick Rose puts together sterling game

Derrick Rose's 23-point night in the Bulls' 105-80 victory over the Nets on Wednesday didn't start smoothly.

Rose gets message about attacking basket

CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose got the message on Wednesday night. He heard all the chatter about how he hasn't been driving to the rim enough during games, how he's been settling for too many three-pointers, and he decided to do something about it. In what was arguably his best offensive performance of the young season, Rose drove to the rim and opened up the floor as he racked up 23 points in a 105-80 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Rose called the win a "statement game," given the fact that the Bulls came into the contest with a 2-5 home record.

Derrick Rose and Tom Thibodeau have different opinions on Rose's shot selection

Derrick Rose is taking way more threes than usual since his return from a hamstring injury. Here was Rose explaining why on Monday: Though Rose is accustomed to seeing traps and double teams, he said the Warriors employed a now more common defense of a softer "contain-type trap" in which one defender stays with him and another - in the Warriors' case, Andrew Bogut - serves as a rim protector with Rose as the focus. "I've just got to learn how to score with two people on me whenever I drive and ... how to get fouled or get a good shot up," Rose said. "I'm a scoring point guard, so my game...

Derrick Rose lacking attack in game

CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau shares many words of advice with star guard Derrick Rose on a daily basis, but he’s been using one more than any other as of late. Thibodeau has stressed for Rose to attack. “He’s got to attack,” Thibodeau said after practice on Tuesday. “That’s the bottom line. Some teams are going under [picks] and some teams will adjust to a blitz. All I know is when he’s pushing the ball up the floor and attacking, that’s who he is.
