09:27 AM ET 11.10 | How would Derrick Rose guard Derrick Rose? The same way the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers have this season. Hard double-team traps as soon as Rose gets the ball over the half-court line. Frustrate him. Force him to make the tough pass. Most important, make one of the other players beat you. Until the rest of the Bulls can step up and take advantage of the double teams on Rose by making easy baskets, the team will continue to struggle offensively. "Get the ball out of my hands? I guess, yeah," Rose said when asked if that's how he would defend the Bulls as an opposing coach. "It's kind of slowing me down because it's forcing my teammates to kind of make plays. At the same time, it's easy basketball when I pass it to them. I know I'm going to have my opportunity to go at them or explode, but I think jelling is the biggest thing right now."

I don't know about teams "frustrating Derrick Rose", but there are a few teams frustrating the Heat, so far this season.

When somebody frustrates them in the playoffs then it's a story. For now they are the two time champs.Morning OT.

Morning my friend!! Yeah you're right, the Heat has the Championship label, until some team removes it. :-)

The Celtics aren't tanking. Rondo comes back and they could win 35 games, maybe even be in contention for an 8 seed.

Jeff Green is going to replace PP very nicely at SF.

Everybody on here was saying he sucks in the playoffs (except Mick and I). He was coming back from a serious injury. The man is showing he's a player.
