Wolves’ Derrick Rose Talks Career Night

Minnesota Timberwolves Derrick Rose may have had the “feel good” game of the season when he dropped a career high 50 points in the Wolves home win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night that showed Rose return to form.

Rose, who has dealt with a number of injuries since his MVP season several years ago, was emotional following the game.

“I worked my ass off,” Rose said, in a post-game interview with Fox Sports. “I did this for the franchise, the fans, the organization.

“I’m doing everything just to win, and tonight was a hell of a night.”

“He has courage, he has humility and he has character,” Wolves head coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He’s been through a lot of adversity. He’s maybe one of the most mentally tough people I’ve ever come across.”

“He made a lot of plays, made some tough shots,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “We had some breakdowns, a little bit of everything.”

“It still didn’t even hit me yet,” Rose said. “Words can’t explain how I feel right now. It’s been a while.”

When the Minnesota Timberwolves fired head coach Tom Thibodeau, there was speculation that team owner Glen Taylor would be in hot pursuit of former Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg.

But, with the early success of interim head coach Ryan Saunders, Taylor is happy to stick to the current course, despite having a conversation with Hoiberg following his dismissal from the Bulls.

“We spent time on (Chicago) and what he wanted to do in the future,” Taylor said of his discussion with Hoiberg, according to Danny Lawhon of The Des Moines Register.

“We had already made up our mind on Ryan, because Ryan has worked with these players, been there all year. That was the easiest way to make the transition.”

Hoiberg has ties to the organization, having played two seasons in Minnesota and also served in the team’s front office following his retirement.
