New, comments

A storybook ending to Rose's return to the United Center.

I've been clamoring for #TheReturn of Derrick Rose's floater, and Rose delivered a beauty to beat the Knicks 82-81 in his first meaningful game at the United Center since he tore his ACL in April 2012.

It was nice redemption for Rose, who really struggled for most of the night. Rose led the Bulls with 18 points. but he shot just 7-of-23 from the field and turned the ball over four times. Things were really painful in the fourth quarter, when Rose really forced things and make numerous bad decisions that almost cost the Bulls.

But in the end, Rose's floater from the heavens dropped through the hoop with 5.7 seconds left to give the Bulls a thrilling victory.
