After missing most of the last two seasons with injuries, Derrick Rose returned to the United Center with Team USA Saturday night — and reminded them what they’ve been missing.
The first quarter started out a little slow for Rose (he missed a dunk and seemed nervous at the start) but after a few minutes out he came back in and soon unleashed that crossover on Raul Neto then scored over Anderson Varejao of Brazil. It looked like he was back.
Rose finished with seven points (on five shots) with a couple assists, which may not seem a lot of points but Team USA is deep with offensive talent. Rose still showed he could take over a play when needed, as he did at the end of the first half.
