Rose/LinMike DiNovo/US PresswireDerrick Rose outscored Jeremy Lin 32-15 in their first matchup on Monday.
Derrick Rose admitted he was looking forward to playing against New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin before Monday night's game, and it showed.

Rose thrived when being guarded by Lin on his way to 32 points in the Bulls' 104-99 victory. It was the fourth straight game in which the Knicks have allowed an opposing point guard to score at least 25 points.

Rose was aggressive and attacked the rim, making seven shots within five feet of the basket, tied for his second most of the season. When Rose makes more than five field goals within that distance this season, the Bulls are undefeated.
