It’s not often that Derrick Rose is on the wrong side of these types of highlights, but given the way the Sixers erased the Bulls’ 18-point third quarter lead to come away with their third straight victory to start the season, the guys on the tam who made it happen deserve a little shine.

Rose looked like one of the fastest players in the league in going end to end for the shot attempt, but that’s where his heroics ended on this particular play. Tony Wroten was waiting for him, and timed his jump perfectly to come up with the monster rejection on one of the game’s most explosive players.
