Derrick Rose put up 30 points, but it wasn't enough as the Cavs took the unofficial Round 1 of this year's biggest Eastern Conference rivalry.

Rose played about as perfect of a game as one player can, hitting 12/18 shots overall and 4/5 from behind the arc on his way to scoring 30 points in only 24 minutes. If Rose would have played his normal 35 minutes, the Bulls just might have won this game.
