Hawks vow to get more physical with Derrick RosePosted by Inside Hoops
Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports:
Hawks coach Larry Drew promised Saturday to make some adjustments in terms of defending Derrick Rose after the MVP scored a career-high 44 points in Friday’s 99-82 Game 4 win.
Part of those adjustments no doubt will include more physical play against Rose.
Drew checked out the stat sheet during halftime and saw only one foul from his starters, assessed to point guard Jeff Teague.
In other words, Rose won’t go untouched come Sunday night.
“Without a doubt,” Drew said when asked if his team needed to be more physical with Rose. “From a physical standpoint, absolutely.”
