Rose: "I probably won't get any sleep tonight. I'm excited for the city. Everybody was happy we came here and played...and we won."

Sam Smith

Rose: "I'm playing the way I normally play (for USA). Push the ball, play defense and get guys shot and when the shot is available take (it)

Sam Smith

Rose continued: "We won. That's what I'm happy about. When I was out there (I know the fans) wanted me to shoot every ball."

Sam Smith

Rose post game: "I've been preparing for this (UC return) for a long time. If this was a couple of week ago I would have been emotional."

Chuck Swirsky

Was this the first time Anthony Davis played at the UC as an NBA player? I believe he missed last two seasons with injuries.

KC Johnson

Coach K on extending Rose in 3rd quarter: "He needs to learn how to play tired. We wanted to see that. And he did pretty good."

Chuck Swirsky

Great night at the United Center...Bulls staff did an amazing job assisting USA Basketball. Game Ops is second to none. The best.

KC Johnson

Tom Thibodeau on Rose: "He’s shaking some rust off. But his explosiveness is back."

Joe Cowley

"I love where he is physically and mentally." Thibs on Rose.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says "this is the perfect setting for (Rose)" says he's gotten more comfortable throughout the summer.

Joe Cowley

Coach K on playing Rose extended minutes in the 3rd. "He has to learn to play tired."

Joe Cowley

The calm and the storm! http://t.co/zlRt3mEQ56

Nick Friedell

Thibs on Derrick: "I couldn't be more pleased with the way that he played."

Joe Cowley

Coach K calls win over Brazil, "really encouraging."

Nick Friedell

Coach K and Thibs hit the podium. Create a caption. http://t.co/3xawR55w49

Nick Friedell

Rose: "Here in Chicago, basketball is everything."

Nick Friedell

Rose says he felt good on the floor. He says he's excited for the city. http://t.co/jVWKATVWjg

Team USA wins it 95-78. Rose takes another small step on a long journey.

Sam Smith

USA wins 95-78 in first exhibition game for USA Basketball World Cup trail. "USA! USA!"

Joe Cowley

Beat up a pretty good Brazil team.

Joe Cowley

Team USA wins 95-78. Rose was average compared to how he's been playing, but unhurt and happy. Only thing that matters.

Mike McGraw

Damian Lillard and Korver didn't play much, either. Cousins out with knee injury.

KC Johnson

USA 95, Brazil 78. DRose standing ovations 3.

Mike McGraw

Stat board is broken, so can't make it official. But we've seen little to no DeMar DeRozan, Gordon Hayward or Andre Drummond in this game.

Joe Cowley

If there's a point guard that could be odd-man out in the final roster decisions? Lillard.

Joel Brigham

So preseason football has got me stoked for fantasy, and USA basketball has got me stoked for the NBA season. #yaysports

Joe Cowley

Irving and Rose playing together for final 2:50.

Joe Cowley

Marcelo Tieppo Huertas just went easily around Rose ... say that five times fast.

Joe Cowley

Rose misses a clanky-looking three-pointer.

Sam Smith

Huge crowd in UC for exhibition game chanting for Rose return and back in w/5:20 left and USA ahead 17

Nick Friedell

Remember this is just Rose's 6th home game at the United Center in the last two years.

Aggrey Sam

Crowd with "We want Rose" chant, Derrick checks in.

Joe Cowley

Fans chant "we want Rose....we want Rose ...'' get their wish. Rose back in with 5:20 left.

KC Johnson

Coach K giving the fans what they want. DRose in at 5:20 mark of 4th.

Nick Friedell

United Center crowd chants "We want Rose!" Coach K obliges by sending him back in the game.

Sam Smith

Davis now with lob slam dunk on Irving pass for 78-63 USA lead. OK, that's another guy who's made the team.

Nick Friedell

Man, Anthony Davis is a great, great player. Can't imagine the coverage he would get if he didn't play in New Orleans.

KC Johnson

Anthony Davis is taking this game over.

Chuck Swirsky

Anthony Davis is a stud. You can quote me. That is all .

Sam Smith

Geez; Anthony Davis with save attempt out of bounds and flying somersault into crowd. Better tell him he doesn't have to act like pelican

Nick Friedell

Anthony Davis makes the hustle play of the night jumping for a ball in the stands. Fans burst into a "USA! USA!" chant.

Sam Smith

USA leads 68-63 entering 4th. Rose probably finished for night after playing entire 3rd quarter.

Nick Friedell

The crowd roars for Scottie Pippen after he's shown on the JumboTron.

Chuck Swirsky

USA up 5 after 3 quarters

KC Johnson

Rose played the entire 3rd quarter.

Sam Smith

Worth staying. Rose with USA play of game, crossover dribble on wing, drive and switch hands lefty layin for 64-53 USA lead. He's back again

Chuck Swirsky

Rose with a gorgeous move to the rack changing hands to the cup and a score

Nick Friedell

Rose splits two defenders and lays it in. Crowd explodes. Chicago fans like seeing this movie again.

KC Johnson

Remember that crossover?

Aggrey Sam

Thibs can't help himself. Stood up and started screaming last possession on D. It's his defense and his arena, but not his team.

Mike McGraw

Team USA is up by 12 in 3rdQ, but struggling with interior defense. Also not generating as many open shots as they should. Work in progress.

Sam Smith

Rose with a pair of free throws, playing valiantly through boo boo over left eye mended with Band Aid at halftime.

Nick Friedell

Shawn Marion in the building saying hello to some folks sitting courtside.

Chuck Swirsky

Rose with a floater off the window to end the half. USA up 8 at half

Sam Smith

Rose enters with 4 seconds left in half. Goes full court for runner for USA 45-37 lead. Rose w/3 pts. USA would have led only 42-37 w/o him

Joe Cowley

Rose hits floater at the horn ... been working on that floater for two years. Finishes the half with three points. USA up 45-37.

Nick Friedell

Rose drives the floor and puts up a nice floater to end the half. Team USA up 45-37 at halftime.

Aggrey Sam

Nice way to end the half.

Nick Friedell

Rose comes back into the game with a small bandage on his face. Looks like he's got a little cut.

Joe Cowley

Rose and his one point coming in for 4.6 seconds of half.

Joe Cowley

Little known fact: James Harden translated into Portuguese actually means: "He of mighty beard and no defense.''

Joe Cowley

Harden has his flop in mid-season form.

Joe Cowley

Harden wants a yellow card with the flop ... no go, James.

Joe Cowley

Tim Hardaway, Steve Smith, Mitch Richmond each marched out as former USA legends.

Sam Smith

Big ovation for Kyle Korver entering game. If he makes a three it will be one game in a row in international competition.

Joe Cowley

Korver in ... Bulls fans with big applause.

Sam Smith

Brazil pulls within 35-33 late in second quarter in desperate attempt to extinguish memories of World Cup loss to Germany

Joe Cowley

Brazil only down two points ... somewhere Oscar Schmidt is screaming wildly at his TV.

Joe Cowley

Bulls just issue a release that Rose indeed made that two-handed dunk.

Sam Smith

Ooops. Parsons with terrific steal in overplaying USA defense. Rose, yikes, misses two handed dunk. Back rim, though. So still can jump.

Mike McGraw

That's two missed dunks in three days for Rose. Missed an uncontested one in Thursday's scrimmage at practice.

KC Johnson

Rose clanged breakaway, two-handed dunk just like he did in Thursday practice.

Nick Friedell

Rose misses a breakaway dunk. Fans were ready to explode. He actually did that at the end of Thursday's practice as well.

Joe Cowley

Call it the Curse of Neto!

Joe Cowley

Rose 1-for-2 at the line. ... and then misses a breakaway dunk.

Joe Cowley

Rose uses 209 pounds and speed to over-power 6-foot-1 Neto and get to the FT line. Poor Neto.

Sam Smith

Varejao misses dunk. LeBron weighing whether to ask for trade to Miami

Mike McGraw

Fans are getting impatient for Rose to take a shot. He just blocked one, though.

Joe Cowley

Rose back in for the second - held scoreless so far, but USA up 29-15.

Sam Smith

USA w/29-15 1st qtr lead. Harden with last shot of quarter, upset as undercut while landing by role player Larry Taylor. Darn role players

Chuck Swirsky

Davis and Curry-15pts USA up 29-15 after 1

Chuck Swirsky

Rose 6 min 0pts. No fga

Joe Cowley

Kyrie doing work .... he's getting ready for the second coming of The King!

Mike McGraw

Nice reminder for the hometown crowd that Anthony Davis might be the NBA's next superstar.

Sam Smith

Chicagoan Anthony Davis with spectacular lob dunk and follow tip as NBA gms begin saving cap room

Aggrey Sam

Wouldn't be surprised if Ant is seen as the league's best 4 by the end of next season. Omer could be what Robin Lopez is for Aldridge.

KC Johnson

Anthony Davis reminding all there's another Chicagoan on floor. Nasty alley-oop in transition from Klay Thompson followed by another hoop

Nick Friedell

I can hear the rumors about Anthony Davis coming to the Bulls in a few years already ...

Nick Friedell

Anthony Davis just made @SportsCenter's Top 10. Wow.

Joe Cowley

AD just dunked on the entire Brazil team.

Joe Cowley

Thibs sitting in his chair by the fourth quarter 2.bp.blogspot.com/-1t3HRE3b06A/T…

Sam Smith

Nene leaves game with USA ahead 17-12. Asks where Jimmy Butler is as wants to work on his head butts

Joe Cowley

Rumor is Thibs has been handcuffed to his chair....only way to keep him down.

Sam Smith

Rose out at first substitution with USA ahead 15-10. Crowd heads for nearby Billy Goat tavern

Joe Cowley

Nene still doing work on the UC floor.

Joe Cowley

Kyrie Irving in for Rose.

Sam Smith

Stephen Curry putting on early shooting show for Team USA. OK, he makes team. That's 1

Mike McGraw

Halfway through 1stQ, Steph Curry putting on a show. Rose letting game come to him. US leads 15-10.

Joe Cowley

Harden with the steal .... could be the first of his career ... CHECK THE STATS!!!
