Rose, who drilled a career-high seven 3-pointers en route to 31 points, says it’s a call he’s resigned to not getting.
Thibodeau thought Derrick Rose was fouled on final shot, so did Gibson. Rose? "For you to ask the question, you had to see something, you feel me? No disrespect, but they're not going to give me that call. They haven't been giving me that call. So I just got to get used to it."

The Los Angeles Lakers held off the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves 114-110.
Per the Star Tribune:
“I want to see that play, it looked like he got hit,” Tom Thibodeau said. “So, I don’t know. I want to take a look at that. From my angle, it looked like he got hit on that play.”
Taj Gibson was more certain.
“He definitely got fouled” Gibson said. “I thought it was on target, but he got nudged. Tyson did hit his hand, but the refs are going to call what they’re going to call.”
It was only one of two misses for Rose from behind the 3-point line all night. He hit a career-high seven 3-pointers to score 31 points as the Wolves hit a franchise record 20 3-pointers. The Wolves may have lost, but Wednesday was another step in the career resurgence of Rose, who had 50 points against the Jazz last week.
“They’re giving me shots that I’ve been working on the whole summer,” Rose said. “[Thibodeau] believe in me, my teammates believe in me to take those shots.”
