At the end of the fourth quarter, when the game was tied at around 20 points, fans chanted Derrick Rose in Madison Square Garden. Rose, who won MVP in 2011, was out of the rotation on December 31 last year.
New York coach Tom Thibodue responded to fans’ chants. Rose was put in with 2 minutes and 40 seconds left. Rose stepped on the court after a long time. He managed to record one assist.
The decibels of the crowd at Madison Square Garden were staggering. Every time Rose caught the ball, he let out a huge cheer. New York, which finished the game with a ‘rose ending’, took a 2-1 lead in the series with the victory that day.
