The Bulls borrowed some Blackhawks enthusiasm for the National Anthem on Tuesday with soloist Jim Cornelison revving up the crowd, but that paled in comparison to the ovation for the person delivering the ball for the opening tip.

Derrick Rose limped to midcourt with the ball as the United Center, including players and coaches for the Philadelphia 76ers, rose to its feet for a standing ovation.

Rose tore his left ACL at the end of Game 1 on Saturday.
