VIDEO: Derrick Rose scores the first bucket of the season for Bulls
Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose has picked up in the regular season where he left off in his return preseason. He scored the first bucket for Chicago this season.
In case you were worried whether or not Derrick Rose's preseason success would carry over to the regular season, the Chicago Bulls superstar looks like he's going to be just fine. On the Bulls' fourth possession of the season, Rose managed to get them their first basket. Just over a minute and a half into the game, he split the double team on a pick-and-roll hedge, drove down the right side of the lane, and made an acrobatic layup past Udonis Haslem.
Rose also had this pretty looking basket when he drove down the lane, took the contact from Chris Bosh and finished with the pretty left-handed layup.
Welcome back, Derrick.
