Bulls 82, Knicks 81

Derrick Rose made a baseline floater with 5.7 seconds left to lift the host Chicago Bulls to a dramatic victory over the New York Knicks on Thursday night in his first home game since he injured his left knee 18 months ago.

Rose had 18 points on 7-of-23 shooting and committed four turnovers. But there was no doubt who was getting the ball after Tyson Chandler hit the second of two free throws to give New York an 81-80 lead with 10.8 seconds remaining.

The speedy point guard, who was a game-time decision for his return due to a sore neck, got the ball on the wing and drove to the baseline for the go-ahead basket, drawing a standing ovation from the delirious crowd at the United Center.

New York had one last chance but Carmelo Anthony missed a long jumper.
