Taking on the young Milwaukee Bucks squad, Derrick Rose sent a message early that he means business as he made an impressive score.

Driving down the court, Rose slowed up and then juked Michael Carter-Williams and Ersan Ilyasova out of their shoes. He caught both Bucks defenders standing still and split both of them with ease.

Even more impressively, he went up and adjusted his body around the defender for the layup.

Roses explosive offensive play is certainly a welcome sight for Bulls fans. If Rose can make dynamic plays and play like his old self that won an MVP, then the Bulls have to be one of the favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the finals.

For Milwaukee, they are a young team with young players playing in the postseason for the first time. They’re going to have to learn quickly that they need to be active on their feet at all times.

If they don’t then Derrick Rose will continue to pick apart the defense on his way to the hoop.
