Former Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas wasn’t a fan of ESPN calling Derrick Rose 50-point game against the Jazz vintage.
Back in 2018, exactly two years ago, the youngest MVP in the history of the NBA scored 50 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to the win over Utah.
Rose had a special Halloween night, as he made such an incredible performance, after enduring four knee surgeries. Furthermore, he had his first 50-point game in his career.
Rose and Isaiah Thomas were teammates for a little bit on the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017-18, before the franchise overhaul its roster at the trade deadline.
Rose was traded to Utah, while Thomas was shipped to the Lakers. The Utah Jazz released the 2011 MVP, who was free for several months before signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves, who made the playoffs that season.
The Chicago native took that chance to make his comeback in the league, as he has been averaging 18+ points in the last two seasons with Minnesota and Detroit.
