Rose registered 24 points and eight assists for the Minnesota on a 119-94 blowout.
This season was a special homecoming for the youngest MVP, as he was able to slowly regain his old form since he suffered a career-altering ACL tear over six years ago.
After struggling to find his groove with the Knicks and Cavs, Rose revamped his productions as a sixth man with the Wolves, posting a decent averages of 18.5 points, 4.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game while shooting a career-high 46.9 percent from the three-point range line.
