Published Add your comment

Derrick Rose may have missed out on All-Star selection this week, but, on Thursday night, the 2011 MVP reminded everyone that he can still mix it with the best of them.

That's after the point guard pulled off one of the assists of the season so far as his Chicago Bulls stamped their authority on their game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Must watch

Capitalizing on a turnover forced by Jimmy Butler with just over six minutes left to go in the fourth quarter, Rose set up E'twaun Moore for the easy bucket with a sublime behind-the-back no-look pass. Scroll down this article to watch the must-see play.

As you can tell from the commentators' reaction to the fast break - and Rose's role in particular - it was a special play from the 27-year-old worthy of watching on repeat.

Rose finished the game, which Chicago won 114-92, with 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Keeping pace

The result, which improves their record to 26-19, keeps Chicago in touching distance with the top two teams in the Eastern Conference; the 32-12 Cleveland Cavaliers and 31-15 Toronto Raptors.

And, with the win over the Lakers the first fixture of a seven-game road trip, they will need more plays like that from Rose and co. if they are to keep pace.

Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

After such a difficult recent history with injury, however, it is just great to see D-Rose coming up with plays like the one last night.
