Derrick Rose apologizes to Cavs teammates for two-week exile, report says

Derrick Rose apologizes to Cavs teammates for two-week exile, report says

He's missed the past 12 games.

Backed by a trio of stars, the Cavaliers matched their longest winning streak since the 2014-15 season.

James is on an incredible streak.

"Right now I'm playing the role that's aligned for me to play", Wade continued. "That was a great road trip for us". Love grabbed 13 rebounds and made 8 of 13 from the field. The Cavaliers shot just under 52 percent.

The Bulls were led by Kris Dunn with 15 points, six rebounds and five assists. Justin Holiday and Robin Lopez scored 14 apiece and rookie Lauri Markkanen added 13.

"But I think our front office has talked to him and we're excited about his return", LeBron James said, sitting courtside at a United Center Rose used to dominate. "None of us can understand what someone is going through".

We can't do that. As a team, we have to continue to keep trending upward. "Everybody has to be on the same page out there and we had too many breakdowns again".

James scored 15 in the half, driving hard and hitting from the perimeter while Wade chipped in with 12 points.

The Cavs first built their cushion on a 13-0 run that straddled the first and second quarters.

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters that point guard Derrick Rose addressed the team at Wednesday's shootaround after he stepped away from the club November 24 to evaluate whether or not he wanted to continue playing basketball.

The Bulls, who at 3-19 are the NBA's worst team so far and have lost nine straight, did not have the same luck two other bottom dwellers - Atlanta and Memphis - had last week staying close with the red-hot, three-time Eastern Conference champion Cavs (17-7). A frustrated Rose had left the team on November 22 to contemplate his future.

It doesn't look good for the Bulls continuing the mastery they had over the Cleveland Cavaliers under coach Fred Hoiberg.

"The big thing is battling through those tough stretches, " Hoiberg said. The Bulls now play IN and Charlotte on the road this week and return to the United Center Saturday to play the Knicks.

Mirotic has been sidelined since October 17, when he suffered two facial fractures and a concussion in an altercation at practice with forward Bobby Portis.
