Timberwolves’ Derrick Rose complains Tyson Chandler fouled him on potential game-winning shot vs. Lakers
Derrick Rose had another virtuoso performance Wednesday night — this time against the Los Angeles Lakers. But the Minnesota Timberwolves fell short of a win, ending the night on the bitter end of a 114-110 final score.
Rose was the main man for the Timberwolves inside Staples Center. He finished the night with 31 points, three rebounds, and five assists on a scorching 11-of-17 shooting from the field and 7-of-9 from 3-point distance. The former Most Valuable Player did it all for his team, but his night was spoiled by the Lakers’ new acquisition in Tyson Chandler.
In what could have been a game-winning play for Minnesota, Rose found himself open from beyond the arc, only for Chandler’s pesky length to bother his shot. Unfortunately for Derrick Rose, Chandler’s contest might not be as clean as the referees made it seem.

Rose was livid after the non-call as the home team came away with the victory. Despite the loss, Rose further cemented the belief that he is in no way en route to retirement.
After years of frustration due to numerous injuries, Rose has rejuvenated his career this season. In fact, he has become the unlikely source of excitement for Timberwolves fans as their team is hounded by the drama from Jimmy Butler’s situation.
The Timberwolves take a day off before facing the Sacramento Kings on Friday.
