Although it might not last for the entire season, the Minnesota Timberwolves received a huge lift from an unexpected hero tonight. While Derrick Rose isn’t considered a superstar anymore, he put together an emotional and phenomenal performance on Halloween.
Rose wasn’t just reverting back to his Chicago days, the athletic guard took his production to the next level.
Following his 50-point game against the Utah Jazz, Rose was in tears as he left the hardwood.
Here is the tear-jerking moment:

From injuries to allegations, Rose went through it all over the past few years. Now, he gets to see his hard work pay dividends.
The former MVP saw years taken away from his career because of knee injuries. Instead of walking away from the game he loves, he found himself a new role in Minnesota.
It’ll be tough for him to replicate this night, but maybe this was all he needs to regain his confidence.
Welcome back to the spotlight, D-Rose.
