Derrick Rose has been the secret stuff keeping the New York Knicks alive in the postseason. The former MVP is playing at an All-Star level once again, and he’s had to go toe-to-toe with Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young.
While the Hawks have the upper hand after taking Game 3, Derrick Rose spoke out about why he’s not worried about Young all that much, via a report from The Athletic’s Mike Vorkunov.
“He’s been playing great,” Rose said. “But I think we have a few more coverages. They was just knocking down shots … We wasn’t talking. We wasn’t making second — or I wasn’t — I know a few times I didn’t make a second or third effort to contest shots. If you’re not making them plays with a shooting team like this, there’s no way you’re going to win games.”
