Derrick Rose: Bulls ‘Building Every Game’
Head coach Tom Thibodeau was adamant throughout the preseason that the regular season opener against the Heat was just another game — one of 82. It’s a message his players followed to a T after being locked down throughout the night by LeBron James & Co.
“We have the whole season to make a statement,” Bulls point guard Derrick Rose said after his eagerly awaited return from a knee injury. “If it was just a one-game season, that’s something we’d be worried about we would be out.
“But for us it’s building every game. We know that we have a special team. We know that we work hard. It’s just us jelling and getting our chemistry.”
