INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Derrick Rose made a successful return to the Chicago Bulls, scoring 13 points in 20 minutes in an 82-76 exhibition victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night

Rose led the Bulls to the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference two seasons ago before he tore his left ACL during the playoffs, then missed all of last season while recovering.

Rose was at his lightning-fast best against the Pacers in the preseason opener for both teams, breaking away for several layups and converting a steal and dunk in the third quarter. He appeared unafraid of contact, constantly challenging Indiana's large front line. He misconnected with his teammates several times and committed four turnovers.

Indiana's Danny Granger also returned after missing most of last season with a left knee injury. He finished with six points on 2-for-10 shooting in 29 minutes.
