Jimmy Butler out vs. Timberwolves

Derrick Rose played one of his best games of the year on Friday night scoring 30 points, grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out eight assists, but the former MVP knows that the final score is the only thing that matters. He missed some shots down the stretch that he would like to have back. "It doesn't matter at all," Rose said of his numbers. "I like the way that Im playing, Im not going to stop. They were giving me everything, its just that some of them didnt go down tonight.

Derrick Rose discusses the Bulls' meltdown in the fourth quarter. The Bulls had an 18 point lead with 1:00 left in the third quarter. They gave up 42 points in the fourth quarter and lost 115-110. It hurt, but its on to the next. We couldnt stop them. When we got the lead we couldnt hold onto it, and they were able to come back. At the end we didnt communicate the way that we were supposed to.
