Bulls Vs. Knicks: Derrick Rose Fine After Playing Heavy Minutes

The Chicago Bulls lost a heartbreaker in overtime to the New York Knicks on Sunday, but they had Derrick Rose on the court for the first time since March 12. He scored 29 points in his return from a groin injury, and after the game was over, he said he felt fine.

‘‘I felt good,’’ Rose said. ‘‘My wind was OK. It just felt good to be out there.’’

Coach Tom Thibodeau said he had trainer Fred Tedeschi check to see how Rose was feeling throughout the game.

‘‘It was about what we expected,’’ Thibodeau said of Rose’s performance. ‘‘Some good, some bad. Handling the ball was a problem.’’
