    Derrick Rose has been rolling lately, and in a good way.

    The 11th-year point guard, in his first season with the Detroit Pistons, is easily handling the minutes load and producing at a high clip.

    Rose has battled injuries through much of his career, but the Pistons' decision to hold him back earlier in the season is paying off.

    "I feel like they were being cautious," Rose said. "I keep showing them. I'm coming in, doing what I'm supposed to do, taking care of my body. I've been prepping for this all summer, so it's finally just coming full circle."

    Rose had 27 points and nine assists, Svi Mykhailiuk added 25 points in a reserve role, and Detroit won its second straight game with an easy 136-103 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.
