There's been one particular Playoffs storyline that's been glanced-over in favor of the many others in the West: Today is Derrick Rose's first playoff appearance since he tore his ACL in 2012 during game one against the Sixers. That was a while ago (clearly, since we're putting "Sixers" and "playoffs" in the same sentence).

A playoff appearance was in doubt after another scare a few months ago. He's now flying today against the Bucks.

In his 13 minutes during the first half, Rose went 6-for-8 for 12 points. These weren't easy 12 points, either. Rose was attacking these young Bucks:

So Rose is once again bringing the excitement as the Bulls go into the second half winning, 60-51.
