08:04 AM ET 04.16 | Derrick Rose shook off a nightmarish performance against the Heat to finish with 24 points and nine assists Sunday. [But he] did commit seven of the Bulls' 21 turnovers and shot four airballs. ... One call Rose did get came with 4:31 left in regulation. [Charlie Villanueva] whacked Rose as he drove on a fast break, getting some ball, arms and cutting Rose's face. Villanueva compounded his mistake with a technical foul for a four-point Bulls possession. He and Rose exchanged words as he left to get his cut addressed. "I'm sick and tired of people trying to take cheap shots at me," Rose said. "I was mad, man. I'm a man, so situations like that, you have to say something."

Note to Derrick Rose: get used to it. Noone is going to simply step aside and let you drive to the bucket.

Doh, Charlie Villanueva - a well known face-puncher and a star-wanna-be smacked opposing player again. What else is new, sky is blue and grass is green ?

Yep, all you have to do is look at his face and see that he is a thug.
