Butler scores 22, Bulls beat Blazers in Rose's return

PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Jimmy Butler scored 22 points, Derrick Rose added 17 in his return to the lineup and the Chicago Bulls held off the Portland Trail Blazers 93-88 on Tuesday night.

Rose had missed two games with a left ankle injury. His floating jumper stretched Chicago's lead to 78-65 early in the fourth quarter, but Portland rallied within 78-76 on Ed Davis' tip shot.

Damian Lillard missed a 3-pointer to tie it for Portland with 2:25 left, then missed the second of a pair of free throws with 20.7 seconds left that would have also pulled the Blazers into a tie.

Lillard finished with 19 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. He shot 4 of 22 from the field. CJ McCollum added 18 points.
