Derrick Rose’s 44 points against the Hawks in Game 3 of the ECSF was not only a new playoff high for Rose, but his new Career high.
The MVP moved up to the second spot for this years playoff highs, second to Dwight Howard’s 46, in a losing effort to these same Atlanta Hawks in the first round.
An incredible performance for a player that came off a level 2 sprain on his ankle, working out with a walking boot just before the game and shaking off a finger injury after the first half.
Where did Rose end up in in the All-Franchise ranks, for single game playoff scoring performances?
Rose is now tied for 23rd among playoffs scoring performances within the franchise. He is also the youngest Bull to ever score 40 or more in a playoff game. You’re in good company D, good company!
