Timberwolves worked hard to to tie with Chicago on the third quarter but Rose did 4 3-pointers to hold off the Wolves.
Kevin Love said on three-pointers, “He has a lot of poise even at his age. He wants to win very bad. The game is starting to slow down for him.”

“We will have to see, tomorrow, I’m not sitting out, I know that I will be playing.”
Tim Thibodeu, Bulls coach said Rose’s injury is fine and he can play for the team.
He said, “He is going to take a lot of hits. He’s got to get through all that stuff. He has shown how tough he is. That’s all part of the game. It’s a tough, physical game. He’s got the ball a majority of time. That’s just the way it is.”
