(CHICAGO) — Derrick Rose knocked down a baseline floater with 5.7 seconds remaining to give the Chicago Bulls an 82-81 win over the New York Knicks on Thursday night.
Rose was playing in his first home game since tearing his left ACL 18 months ago, and he set out to make sure there would be no other outcome.
“That’s what builds your résumé,” Rose said. “Leaves a mark on your legacy.”
Knicks center Tyson Chandler went 1-for-2 at the foul line to give the Knicks (1-1) an 81-80 lead with 10.8 seconds left in the fourth quarter. On the next possession, Rose drove baseline and floated the game-winning shot over both Chandler and Raymond Felton.
The Knicks had one last chance, but Carmelo Anthony missed a jumper as time expired, giving the Bulls their first win of the season.
“I got the look I wanted,” Anthony said.
