Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls beat the New York Knicks 82-81 at Chicago’s United Center on Halloween night.
Rose connected on a last shot with 5.7 seconds left to lift Chicago to the win in his first regular season home game since he hurt his left knee a year and a half ago.
“That’s what builds your resume,” Rose said. “Leaves a mark on your legacy.”
Rose it the final shot when it counted but he didn’t have a great night, scoring 18 points on 7-of-23 shooting and committed four turnovers.
Tyson Chandler went 1 for 2 at the foul line to give the Knicks a 81-80 lead with 10.8 seconds remaining. Rose then drove to the baseline and hit a floater over Chandler and Raymond Felton for the winning basket.
“I was right there. He just made a big-time play,” Chandler said. “I don’t know if he saw the basket to be honest with you.”
The Knicks had another shot, but Carmelo Anthony missed a long jumper as the time ran out.
“I got the look I wanted,” Anthony said.
