Derrick Rose says he's still improving

BY foxsports • February 2, 2015

Despite some sloppy box scores and occasionally erratic court movements, Derrick Rose says he's getting better as he gains confidence. From K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:

"Missing two years, coming out competing, if anyone was to see me play, my goal is to make it look like I haven't missed any years or missed a game," Rose said. "I've got to continue to work and continue to put every game behind me.''

Overall, Rose is averaging 18.6 points on 40.8 percent shooting, including 29.9 percent from 3-point range. He is just 5-for-24 from beyond the arc over his last six games. His 4.9 assists are down from his career-high of 7.9 set in the 2011-12 lockout season. In his MVP season in 2010-11, Rose averaged 7.7 assists.
