The “He’s back” tweets related to Derrick Rose were flowing like champagne on new years eve last night. Rose hit a deep three pointer and banked it off the backboard as the final buzzer sounded, giving the Bulls a 99-96 win over the Cavs and a 2-1 lead in the best of seven series. The moment Rose’s shot went through the basket, twitter, Instagram and the rest of social media platforms literally exploded with reactions. The shot will definitely go down in Bulls history, especially since Rose is the first Bulls player to hit a playoff buzzer beater since the GOAT, Michael Jordan.


The shot won’t mean as much if the Bulls wind up losing the series so there is still work to be done, but there is no doubt this play was epic last night.

#DerrickRose with the 3! #Bulls win!
