Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose got charged $25,000 for in public criticizing officers after Monday’s win over the New York Knicks, the league informed Tuesday. Basketball betting lines

“I’ve gotta be the sole celebrity in the league that’s going thru what I go thru right now,” Rose declared, referring to lack of foul calls in his favor. “But I can not say too much about it.”

Rose asserted he anticipated to be fined. It’s his 1st during his 4 years in the NBA. Basketball lines

“I think you guys know Derrick, Derrick’s not a complainer,” Coach Tom Thibdodeau said. “Generally if he is saying a problem, he has got a point that he would like to make. I thought he was driving the ball pretty hard and did not get calls so he wanted to make a point.”

Rose was 6 for 9 from the line and 12 of 29 from the floor, scoring 32 points in Monday’s 104-99 victory.

“He was just a little sore, rest,” Thibodeau said. “He’s nicked up a little bit.”

Rose took a tough foul during Monday night’s win over the New York Knicks and appeared to be moving slowly after Tuesday’s practice but Thibodeau did not sound too anxious.

“Wear and tear,” Thibodeau declared. “Hopefully the rest will do him fine.”

Rose has already missed 10 games this season due to turf toe and back problems. The brighter reports for the Bulls was the proven reality that Luol Deng returned to practice and Thibodeau was upbeat about Deng being back on the floor. He is missed the past 2 games due to ongoing issues with the torn ligament in his left wrist.

“I would like to see how he feels after practicing,” Thibodeau asserted. “But he went thru everything in practice and he felt pretty well.”

Bulls’ backup point guard C.J. Watson did not take part in practice and Thibodeau claimed he would be re-evaluated after the shootaround practice. Watson has been sidelined for the previous week and a half as a result of an ankle injury.

“He’s doing a little bit more, but he isn’t really there.” Thibodeau recounted. “We’ll see after the shootaround … There’s a definite possibility. He’s doing running and shooting and things like that.”

Except for the injuries, Thibodeau and his team is happy about having the opportunity to face off against the Heat again. The Chicago Bulls need to exact some kind of vengeance on Miami after losing to the Heat late in January.

“They’re a brilliant defensive team,” Thibodeau claimed. “LeBron’s a brilliant defender and their team is wonderful so we have got to try and attack them before they are set and if they are set then we need to move them; keep the ball moving and keep our bodies moving. The large thing is looking after the ball.”

Bulls’ center Joakim Noah put his own spin on the challenge. He knows that a lot of fans believe this can be a preview for the Eastern Conference finals later this season.

“It’s a vital game,” Noah related. “Everybody sees it the way that they would like to see it. Maybe in the standings (it suggests more), but everybody knows that it’s a big game and we’re all thrilled.”
