Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose has battled some serious injury woes over the course of his career, but he’s rebounded to put together an impressive campaign in his 11th NBA season. Rose eclipsed 20 points for his 11th straight game midway through Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, breaking his personal record for his longest streak of at least 20 points. Rose entered Friday averaging 18.5 points and 5.9 assists per game and is one of the more desirable trade targets on the market as the deadline approaches. His Pistons are in the hunt for the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot, and he has a lot to do with that.
