VIDEO: Derrick Rose Hits Reverse Layup While Getting Elbowed In Head

Derrick Rose has had a pretty quiet game for the Chicago Bulls against the Los Angeles Lakers. He has 20 points in the game, but 12 of those came on a barrage of three-pointers he normally hits. Two of those 20 points, though, came in typical Rose style. With the game slipping away from the Bulls, Rose went baseline and displayed some of his trademark creativity around the rim.


The move was even more impressive considering Rose was clocked in the head by an elbow from teammate Luol Deng.Rose was a bit shaken up after the play, but managed to stay in the game. He'll be needed as the Bulls continue to mount a comeback.
