Six Great Derrick Rose Games from 2011 (from Bulls beat writer Christopher Cason)

After a March 2 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, a game in which the Bulls were up by as much as 19 in the second quarter before a second half meltdown, Rose took the loss extremely hard as he had committed a crucial turnover in the game's final seconds. He finished with 12 points and 12 assists but shot 5-21 and committed 6 turnovers. The rematch would be nine days later, and after a slow first half in which he shot 2-11, Rose got it going in the second half, scoring 12 points in a 14-0 run where the Bulls seized control of the game and won 94-76. Rose finished with 34 points and went 14-15 from the free throw line.
