Rose Scores 13 Points In 2nd Preseason Game As Bulls Beat Grizzlies 106-87

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Boozer scored 16 points and Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson added 15 each to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 106-87 preseason victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night.

Derrick Rose added 13 points for Chicago (2-0).

Jerryd Bayless scored 15 points for Memphis (0-1) while Ed Davis had 13.

Rose, in his second preseason game after missing the 2012-13 season, hit on three of eight shots from the field in 23 minutes. He added three steals and three assists.

Rose scored 13 points in an 82-76 win at Indiana on Saturday, his first game in over 17 months. Rose tore his left ACL on April 28, 2012.

Rose delighted a crowd of 13,497 with a coast-to-coast drive in the first quarter that culminated with a driving, spinning layup. He hit a 3-pointer early in the third quarter in the middle of a 26-13 run that put the Bulls in front to stay.
