Derrick Rose

  1. Russell Westbrook cleared medically, will play for Thunder Sunday

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Remember how Russell Westbrook had to have a second knee surgery to clean up a loose stitch and that was going to force him to miss the first month of the season or so? What they meant was two games. Westbrook has cleared all his medical benchmarks and is physically ready to go, so he…

  2. Derrick Rose: “I’m not playing well right now”

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The numbers are just ugly any way you slice them up. Derrick Rose is shooting 28.8 percent overall and 27.6 percent from three so far this young season. He has taken nearly half his shots (48 percent) inside the restricted area but is shooting just 36 percent on those. He is 5-of-22 outside the paint,…

  3. Sixers’ Tony Wroten with the monster rejection against Derrick Rose (VIDEO)

    Nov 3, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    It’s not often that Derrick Rose is on the wrong side of these types of highlights, but given the way the Sixers erased the Bulls’ 18-point third quarter lead to come away with their third straight victory to start the season, the guys on the tam who made it happen deserve a little shine. Rose…

  4. Sixers improve to 3-0 with comeback win over Bulls

    Nov 2, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Michael Carter-Williams

    This is not at all how this was supposed to happen in Philadelphia this season. But after three games and three wins, it’s moved beyond a fluke occurrence and is now becoming a story. The Sixers beat the Bulls 107-104 on Saturday to improve their undefeated record to 3-0 on the season. Chicago and Miami…

  6. The Extra Pass Thursday Roundup: Stephen Curry could be greatest shooter ever

    Nov 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    How good were Stephen Curry and Chris Paul in the shootout between the Clippers and Warriors last night? It’s almost impossible to be hyperbolic, both about the performances and the players themselves. Don’t believe me? Try this one on for size: Stephen Curry is the best shooter of all-time. You’re squirming, aren’t you? It doesn’t…

  7. Thursday night NBA grades: That Chris Paul guy is pretty good

    Nov 1, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    BKN-WARRIORS-CLIPPERS

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to bad British announcers call Game 7 of the Heat/Spurs Finals last year…. Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers. That was the kind of performance that reminds you CP3 is the very best point guard in the NBA — 42 points, 15…

  8. Derrick Rose hits the game-winner to send Bulls past Knicks (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Derrick Rose was not at his best in Thursday night’s nationally-televised matchup against the Knicks, but he rose to the occasion when it mattered most. With the Bulls trailing by one and 5.7 seconds remaining, Rose drove baseline, then stopped and elevated for the high-arching floater over two defenders that fell through the net to…

  9. Derrick Rose gets the sick bounce pass to Luol Deng for the finish (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose was playing through a neck injury against the Knicks on Thursday, which may be part of the reason for his 2-of-11 shooting performance in 16 first-half minutes. But his court awareness and ability to get the ball to his teammates remained as sharp as ever, and it was showcased nicely on this crisp…

  10. Anthony Davis talks Pelican chemistry, his game and NBA 2K14

    Oct 31, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    While you were looking at Dwight Howard or Derrick Rose this preseason, the New Orleans Pelicans put together a nice little 7-1 record. Then on opening night the Pelicans had a 16-point second half lead against the contending Pacers, a lead the more experienced Pacers were able to make evaporate behind some strong play from…

  11. What sore neck? Derrick Rose says he will play vs. Knicks Thursday

    Oct 31, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Despite what a few selfish Bulls fans and some talk radio folks think, Derrick Rose is a tough guy. Mentally and physically. He played through a lot of injuries his first couple years (including a painful toe issue at the time of his knee injury). So while Tom Thibodeau called him a “game time decision”…

  12. Wednesday Night’s NBA Grades: How about that Michael Carter-Williams?

    Oct 31, 2013, 1:50 AM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while throwing back a few bottles of snake venom with your buddies. Michael Carter Williams, Philadelphia 76ers. His first NBA bucket came on a steal and coast-to-coast drive and slam against the Miami Heat. It doesn’t get much better than that… except it did.…

  13. Norris Cole’s crossover breaks Derrick Rose’s ankles

    Oct 30, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    Norris Cole

    Welcome back to the NBA, Derrick Rose. He looked rusty on this play, where Miami’s Norris Cole brings the ball up quickly, starts to move towards a Chris Andersen screen — Rose starts to anticipate the contact and Cole crosses him up and gets the wide-open jumper. Rose says he wasn’t rusty, that he shot…

  14. Tuesday night’s NBA Grades: How about that Lakers bench?

    Oct 30, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Xavier Henry, J.J. Redick

    Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while watching crazy big wave surfing videos. The Los Angeles Lakers’ bench. The Lakers bench played free, played Mike D’Antoni ball and scored 76 points including the final 46 the Lakers scored to spark an opening night upset win over the Lakers. Xavier…

  15. Heat begin title defense with opening night blowout win over Bulls

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The Bulls were one of the fashionable preseason picks to dethrone the Heat this season, considering the return of Derrick Rose, the way Chicago has historically defended under Tom Thibodeau, and the fact that Miami is trying to become the first team to reach the Finals in four straight seasons since the Celtics did it 27…

  16. Derrick Rose is back, here’s his first bucket of the 2014 season (VIDEO)

    Oct 29, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The Heat and the Bulls tipped off the 2013-14 season on national television Tuesday, and while the night began with Miami re-living the way the 2013 season ended, Derrick Rose quickly shifted focus to what the upcoming season may bring. After being ripped in the open floor by Mario Chalmers on his first possession, Rose…

  17. Quote of the Day: Bosh knows Bulls want to…. go No. 2 on Heat’s party

    Oct 29, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    “When Dallas got their rings (Christmas Day 2011, the first game after the lockout), we wanted to embarrass them on their home floor, wanted to defecate on their night. We know (the Bulls) want to do that to us and they want to spoil what we have going.” —Miami’s Chris Bosh, speaking with the Miami…

  18. 5 teams that could prevent the Miami Heat from winning the 2014 NBA title

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    The Miami Heat will open the 2013-14 NBA season at home against the Bulls on Tuesday, after receiving their championship rings and raising a banner to the rafters for the second straight season. They’ll also open the year as the favorites to win a third straight title, but history has not been kind to teams…

  19. Three players who stood out in the NBA preseason

    Oct 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    In general, you can’t read too much into what happens in the preseason. Star players are rested or play limited minutes, coaches experiment with lineups, effort is inconsistent at best, guys who will be buried on the bench or in the D-League get big run, and nobody game plans much. What you can see sometimes…

  20. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  22. Top 10 plays of the 2013-14 preseason (VIDEO)

    Oct 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade

    The regular season tips off in just a couple of days, so it’s worth taking a look back at some of the best plays the preseason had to offer. Takeaways from this video clip include Chris Paul taking his offensive game up a notch, Derrick Rose being all the way back, and the Heat looking…

  23. LeBron doesn’t see Paul Pierce, anyone in NBA as his rival

    Oct 25, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Does LeBron James have a peer in the NBA? A rival? He says no. Back in the day, when LeBron James was with the Cavaliers, he and Paul Pierce in Boston had some epic individual battles. But LeBron says that time has passed and he doesn’t look to play one-on-one like that anymore — his…

  24. Derrick Rose’s advice to Russell Westbrook: “Take his time”

    Oct 24, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    I can hear groans coming out of Chicago (and a few from Oklahoma City) after just the headline. We don’t need to recap how Derrick Rose missed all of last season for the Bulls as he worked to return from ACL surgery. He had the right to stay out until he felt he could play…

  25. Rondo says he is “87%” and “won’t come back unless I know I’m myself again”

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:07 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    There still is no timeline, no date set for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics from the ACL injury he suffered last January — yet there are positive signs that time is near. He has been working out on the court daily and said he got fitted recently for a knee brace, which happens…
