New York Knicks are one win away from securing a playoff berth for the first time in seven years. Dwyane Wade talked on the NY franchise’s success this season and the impact of Derrick Rose during a half-time show break.

“If you don’t like D. Rose, something is wrong with you. He’s that kind of guy. He plays with poise, with patience. He’s a great finisher. It’s great to see a guy at this point in his career, average 20 off the bench & be a big key to getting this New York team to where they are,” Wade said via

Coming off the bench, the 11-year veteran averages 14.8 points, 4.3 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game helping the Knicks find more score off their bench unit.

Since he joined the Knicks, the team won 22 of its 33 regular season games sitting at the sixth place of the Eastern standings with a 38-31 record.
