Sam Smith

Rose doesn't have a strong game but looks strong and resolute in USA exhibition win over Slovenia. blogs.bulls.com/2014/08/rose-i…

KC Johnson

DRose off bench again in Team USA's final exhibition, a victory over Slovenia. 0-3 FG, 3-6 FTs, 3 TOs.

Joe Cowley

Very disappointing from where he was at the start of the USA Basketball trials in Las Vegas last month.

Joe Cowley

Rose looked and played like a guy that had somewhere else to be.

Joe Cowley

Sure it was just a friendly against Slovenia, but Coach K should keep starting Irving over Rose until the '11 MVP can show a pulse.

Joe Cowley

Kyrie Irving - who is now starting over Rose and outplaying him the last 10 days - scored 13 points on 3-of-5 shooting with his team +39.

Joe Cowley

How bad was Rose today? He went 0-for-3 from the field, 3-for-6 from the FT line, three turnovers and - ready for this -4 in the plus/minus.

Nick Friedell

Dragic sent his own memo there. But it will never top Rose's original in Phoenix.

Sam Smith

USA's Irving, Harden & Curry not very good starting unit for moving ball. Not getting drive and kick shots in corners for good shooters

Sam Smith

Curry 2 fts before 2nd half opened. Apparently late Slovenia T. Turns out even officials embarrassed; wanted to give USA shooting practice

Nikola Mirotic

#IceBucketChallenge Don't just throw water. Donate! El agua y el hielo son la anécdota. Es importante que donemos http://t.co/wwvGxgid3x

Joe Cowley

"LeBron and I have had conversations that I need to mentally prepare myself to play into June.'' Love on playoff pressure he is yet to feel.

Joe Cowley

Love wearing #0. Said he went to grass roots and first number he had in Oregon days.

Joe Cowley

Love looked up to Dirk Nowitzki and his game.

Nick Friedell

Did Kevin Love really just say a long term deal hasn't been talked about? Yeah, OK.

Joe Cowley

"I'm committed to this team and committed long-term to win a championship ... " KLove on if he has long-term plans to stay in C-Town.

Joe Cowley

Meanwhile, a few thousand miles away, KLove introduction going on in Cleveland.

Joe Cowley

Very blah first half for Team USA.

Sam Smith

46-35 USA at half, but who thinks they'll get the test of a team like Slovenia again

Aggrey Sam

Golden State advance scout Chris Thomas, who previously worked for the Bulls, is an assistant coach for Slovenia.

Sam Smith

USA leads 46-36, but tough to remember USA team even hitting the rim on jump shot. USA team apparently watched John Salley shooting drills

Joe Cowley

Rose remains a very passive-looking player the past few games.

Mike McGraw

Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving playing together now. (US vs. Slovenia is on ESPN2).

Sam Smith

Officials continue to call Amer-step on USA players with maybe a half dozen traveling calls in first half.

Sam Smith

Where's Kyle Korver? USA looks like the guys who can't shoot straight despite 33-18 lead.

Sam Smith

Gay to Cousins for slam dunk. Yes, 17 percent of the U.S.'s national team players are members of the Sacramento Kings.

Sam Smith

Rose misses both free throws with USA now 2-8 on fts. Apparently a low altitude issue in Canary Islands

Nick Friedell

Watching Thibs have to stay on the bench -- after watching him pace the sidelines for years -- is truly comical.

Sam Smith

Rose in with 5:27 left in first w/USA ahead 10-4. Gets caught deep on fast break and commits turnover to match Kyrie Irving early effort

Joe Cowley

Rose is in the game, and quickly with a bad turnover. Not hatin' - just facts.

Joe Cowley

Maybe Irving is the player to jump a level coming out of USA Basketball in mid-Sept. That could be real bad news for the Bulls.

Sam Smith

James Harden seems distracted. He almost passed the ball before shooting a three.

Joe Cowley

Kyrie Irving starting again for Team USA, with Rose expected to come off the bench against SVN.

Sam Smith

USA off to awkward start against Slovenia in final exhibition. But it can be unsavory playing against a team wearing olive green

Sam Smith

Irving starts at point for USA over Rose and travels on first USA possession. Committee putting in call to Lillard.

Shams Charania

Zydrunas Ilgauskas' agent, Herb Rudoy, tells RealGM of speculation of the 39-year-old center attempting an NBA comeback: "False rumor."

I don't care what anyone says. House of Cards is the best show on TV. Emmy or no Emmy.

Always said XBox is like playing Pebble Beach. PlayStation is Augusta.

Joe Cowley

I've played it on both next gem consoles and Madden 15 is great on either. My choice of weaponry, though, is the PS4.

Joe Cowley

It's about time the defense got the gameplay upgrade. Standard is the standard.

Joe Cowley

For those getting Madden 15 tomorrow, EA has outdone itself with this year's version. Full review in Tuesday's Sun-Times.
