In his first postseason game in almost three years, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose scored 23 points and dished out seven assists while showing more emotion than usual in a 103-91 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals Saturday night.

“It felt good,” Rose said of his playoff return. “It felt normal. I’m grateful to be playing again, playing with my teammates that I have right now. They’re allowing me to play the way that I normally play, and it’s an honor, man. I’m really fortunate because I think anywhere else it wouldn’t be the same, and they’re giving me motivation. They’re pushing me, and it feels good.”
