Derrick Rose shot 5-of-8 on Friday, turning in a nice game of 15 points, three assists, a steal and two triples even though the Cavs dropped a home decision to the Pacers.
Rose going 2-of-2 from deep is a nice sight even if we wouldn’t count on it going forward. He’ll face the least amount of defensive pressure in his career this season given all the talent that Cleveland trots out there, so perhaps those open looks and driving lanes serve him well. How Rose functions on the bench when Isaiah Thomas returns is another question entirely, but until then he’s probably going to return low-end value. Just don’t get too attached.
