After struggling to find his rhythm since his return from injury, Derrick Rose has started to show some flashes of his MVP form against the Detroit Pistons. Despite a disappointing second half performance as a team, Rose showed his ability to thrive in clutch situations, as he hit a three-pointer with just seconds remaining to tie the game at 86 and force overtime.
Rose looked confident throughout regulation, scoring 24 points and dishing out eight assists to help keep the Bulls in the game. Joakim Noah has also been very productive, netting 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds for the double-double. Unfortunately, Luol Deng has really struggled with his shot, scoring only two points on 1/8 shooting from the field.
The Pistons have been able to compete in this game despite shooting only 40% from the field as a team. Rodney Stuckey has led the way for Detroit with 24 points on just 5/16 shooting from the field.
