NBA players react to Derrick Rose's career night against the Utah Jazz

The throwback jerseys brought out a throwback game from Derrick Rose.

With Jimmy Butler out, Rose took the wheel and exploded for a career-high 50 points in the Minnesota Timberwolves' 128-125 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

Rose shot a scorching 19-of-31 from the field, 4-of-7 from the 3-point line and hit the Jazz with every move in his arsenal, making it look like 2011 again. He even hit the clutch basket down the stretch to seal the win.

The last time Rose scored more than 40 points was during his 2010-11 MVP season. As the 30-year-old turned back the clock, his NBA peers were over the moon with what they were seeing, taking to Twitter to show Rose plenty of love.
