Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Derrick Rose exploded for 50 points in Wednesday night’s 128-125 overtime victory over the Utah Jazz. In the absence of Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague, the Minnesota Timberwolves ran their offense through the 2010-11 MVP, and he looked every bit as he did eight years ago. Derrick Rose got emotional, and he cried after scoring his career-high 50 points. During the post game interview, Derrick Rose was crying stating that he worked hard everyday to be back on this level.
The youngest MVP in NBA history scored 50 points against the Utah Jazz, a career-high and his highest point total since he went off for 42 points back on March 18, 2011 game versus the Indiana Pacers in which the year he won the NBA MVP award. Rose not only converted on 19-of-31 field goal attempts, but he also went 4-of-7 from beyond the arc. He single-handedly took over the game as he nailed the game-winning free-throws to go along with two clutch shots in the final minute before capping off his historic night with the game-clinching block of Dante Exum as time expired.
The former league MVP saw his run with the Chicago Bulls come to an unceremonious end, played one disappointing season with the New York Knicks, then signed on to join the Cleveland Cavaliers' star-studded lineup last season, only to end up taking a leave of absence from the team before eventually being traded. When he signed on with the Minnesota Timberwolves late last season, it was seen as a coach doing a favor for his former star player.
Derrick Rose's 50 point game is the fourth-most scored by an NBA player this season, and tied for the second-most ever scored by an NBA player on Halloween. Rose recaptured the form that earned him league MVP honors in 2010-11 also captured the attention of his NBA colleagues on Twitter, who expressed their excitement upon seeing the 30-year-old Rose look like his prime self again.
● Derrick Rose played his first seven seasons in Chicago after the Chicago Bulls drafted him No. 1 overall back in the 2008 NBA Draft. He won the NBA MVP award back in 2011, but injuries derailed his career causing a trade to New York Knicks back in 2016. After one season with the Knicks, Rose joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in July 2017 as an insurance for Kyrie Irving's departure, but was traded and subsequently released by the Utah Jazz the following February. On March 8, 2018, Rose signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves, reuniting him with Tom Thibodeau, Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson.
Rose still makes more than $10 million a year from the 13-year Adidas deal he signed in 2012, but sales of his signature shoes have cratered and he's been usurped by James Harden and Damian Lillard in marketing for the brand.
