(The Plain Dealer:) How did it feel taking over in 4th quarter, shades of old Derrick?

(Derrick Rose:) I wouldn’t say I was trying to take over, I was trying to put the pressure on them and make them move around.

(The Plain Dealer:) What’s it like to win playoff game that intense? Did you call glass?

(Rose:) I don’t mean to sound cocky, but those are the ones you want to take as a player that’s in my position. I’m thankful and grateful my teammates gave me the ball. They believe in me, kept encouraging me to play. No I did not call glass.
