Derrick Rose received a mix of boos and cheers during introductions before his first game back in Chicago on Friday night. He also was booed the first few times he handled the ball.
But Rose walked off of the Bulls’ floor with a smile and celebratory high-five from teammate Joakim Noah after helping the New York Knicks to a much-needed 117-104 win at the United Center. Afterward, Rose said the boos from the home crowd didn’t bother him. “It was all fun, man. I love competing,” he said after recording 15 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds in his best performance as a Knick.
