Rose scored 23 points in his return from a sprained left wrist, and Chicago snapped its losing streak at 10 games with a 98-84 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.
"I've been working out and doing a lot of running, but it was just great to be back with the team," Rose said.
Rose who sparked the Bulls with a 9-for-16 shooting performance, including 4 for 6 on 3-pointers.
"I got a lot of open shots," Rose said. "It seemed like they were giving me the shots. I was open. I had to take them."
Marreese Speights had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Philadelphia. The 76ers have lost 12 of their last 14 games and are 11-23 at home.
"We just didn't have it," Sixers coach Eddie Jordan said.
Chicago built a 21-point lead and had a 77-62 advantage after the third quarter.
Joakim Noah and Miller scored consecutive baskets to open the fourth to quickly put the Bulls back ahead by 19. The Sixers, 1 of 17 from 3-point range, never got within single digits the rest of the way.
"As a team, we have to do a better job," Dalembert said. "We have to recognize situations and play better."
Rose missed the Bulls' previous four games, while Noah returned after missing 10 straight games because of a left foot injury.
"Having Rose and Noah back really helped," Chicago coach Vinny Del Negro said. "It was a nice win, knowing what we've been through."'Notes
