There haven’t been many times this season when Derrick Rose has disappointed. And the few times he has, he’s always found a way to get redemption.
On February 2, Rose went for 32 points and 11 assists in a Chicago Bulls’ win against the Los Angeles Clippers. He wanted revenge for a game earlier in the season when he missed a free throw that led to a Clippers win in Chicago.
On Saturday against Golden State, Rose had a season high nine turnover and was held to a pedestrian 14 points in a Bulls’ 101-90 loss.
“Of course it bothered me that night,” Rose said. “I watched a lot of film. I’m going to try to be aggressive like I have all year. Just do opposite of what I did in the last game.”
That’s not a good sign for the Portland Trail Blazers. If Rose feels that he has something to prove on Monday night then it could be a big night for him and Bulls.
