The double vision must be gone.
After going the entire season without shooting 50 percent in a game—eight or more attempts—Derrick Rose has found his shooting eye again.
Rose has eclipsed the 50 percent mark twice in his last four games and is a blazing
57 percent (33-for-58) on two-pointers during that stretch. That’s more in line with his career numbers of 44 percent from the field.

Most of Rose’s early-season shooting woes were at or near the rim, but he has turned that around.

The Bulls point guard is still struggling from the three-point line, where he’s hitting .229 percent. Only during his rookie year (.222) did he shoot worse from beyond the arc.
