The Milwaukee Bucks elected not to send a second defender at Derrick Rose, and the reigning NBA MVP made them pay.

With the score tied at 104 and just seconds remaining on the clock, the Chicago Bulls spread the floor to allow Rose to work on Brandon Jennings one-on-one on the perimeter. Rose took his time, methodically dribbling to the right of center court as he eyed Carlos Delfino to see whether he would offer a double-team. Delfino instead chose simply to clog the paint, discouraging a drive. Recognizing that Jennings was by himself, Rose hit him with a right-to-left crossover and a leap back gather step, easily creating a clean look as Jennings flailed a bit in closing the gap. 

Jennings rose to contest Rose's resulting fadeaway jumper but it didn't matter, as the shot looked good as soon as it left Rose's hands. The ball swished cleanly through the net as the buzzer sounded, and Chicago left the Bradley Center with a dramatic 106-104 victory on Wednesday night. Rose finished with a game-high 30 points, 11 assists, 8 rebounds, 11 steal and 1 block in 39 minutes.

"I’m blessed to be on this team," Rose said aftewards, according to the Chicago Tribune. "They gave me the ball at the end. It shows how much respect they have for me."

Here's the video of Derrick Rose's dramatic game-winner against the Milwaukee Bucks via YouTube user chiddybang40.

Not sure of their exact record with him out of lineup and he has missed ten games, 5 in a row twice.  If it is indeed say 8-2, then that, in my opinion, is more of a comment on the rest of the NBA tham it is on Rose.  One thing that needs to be considered in comparing Rose and James at this point is that teams can more easily gameplan for Rose than James because of the presence of Wade on the floor.  As for who is the better player or more valuable, your guess is as good as anyone else's.  Personally, the biggest difference I see is that Rose is more professional in his approach to life although that could just be the difference in their personalities.

I'm not arguing for either guy but I know this....wade and bosh are both better than anyone on bulls other than who's more valuable?  without rose bulls are good but likely a 4 or 5 seed....heat without james probably still 2 or 3......just my opinion

Nothing about hating Rose. Dude is a stud, but if you think he deserves the MVP over Lebron this year, then you are out of your mind. As much as people want to talk about the Bulls being a one man show, that cant be further from the truth. Arent the Bulls something like 9-2 with Rose out?
