Derrick Rose returned to the Chicago Bulls on Monday night and didn't look rusty at all as he put up 23 points, six assists and five rebounds in a 90-79 win. Rose, playing for the first time since February 8 after recovering from a back injury, played fewer minutes than usual but was not restricted too much as he spent 34 minutes on the floor.
The Atlanta Hawks shot just 42 percent from the floor, and that number looked better than it should have thanks to an unlikely hot shooter. Jannero Pargo scored 19 points on 7-12 shooting off the bench to lead the Hawks. Josh Smith struggled from the floor, scoring 17 points from 7-21 shooting. Joe Johnson played just 26 minutes and scored 12 points for the Hawks.
