Derrick Rose with the acrobatic and-1 finish in his Chicago preseason debut (VIDEO)

Oct 16, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

Derrick Rose played his first game in front of his hometown fans at the United Center since April of 2012 on Wednesday, getting the nod in the starting lineup in a preseason matchup with the Pistons.

Rose got going early, and scored eight of his team’s first 13 points. But this play in the second quarter (at the 1:50 mark of the video clip above) — a hesitation dribble on the perimeter followed by a quick move to get past his defender and into the paint for the acrobatic and-1 finish — truly showed the crowd he’s just about all the way back.

Rose finished with 22 points on 6-of-9 shooting in 22 minutes in the Bulls’ 96-81 victory.

    I’m a Lakers fan, but go Rose, go Bulls! Beat the Heat!
    Rose is a good dude and got a ton of flak (which I do understand), but I hope he proves everyone (including me) wrong.

    MJ should just counter with “1st round draft pick for the next 5 years….winner take all”

    The guy would get quiet real fast

    Saw the game live at UC. Rose is back and then some!!! Snell was even a bigger surprise with his 3’s. His shot is so silky smooth. I am excited about the second group, because they will decide the championship in the Eastern conference. Can’t wait to see James folded over and hanging onto his shorts and gasping for air in the final 4 minutes of game seven as Rose hammers the final nail into Miami’s coffin!!!
    Daaaaaaa Buuuulllllllssssss!!!
