Is Derrick Rose back? The superstar Chicago point guard drove to his right and buried a game-winning layup over the outstretched arms of Tyson Chandler, his Bulls an 82-81 victory over the New York Knicks.
Over the last 15 or so years, the Bulls have burned the Knicks many – many – times, and Halloween was no exception. One man has been on the sidelines for a number of those Bulls wins (or should we say Knicks losses). It’s not an owner, not a coach, and not anyone currently playing for New York.
It’s a fan. It’s Spike Lee. Once again, the director had to sit there and watch Chicago send his Knicks home empty-handed. It must hurt all the more that it happened at the hands of Rose, who looked so rusty to open the year against the Miami Heat.
Rose, who missed all of last year while rehabbing a torn ACL, finished his second game back with 18 points, six rebounds and three assists.
