Immanuel Quickley discussed what he’s learned playing alongside Derrick Rose, saying that Rose has helped him on the defensive end.

“He’s a good shooter and can get to his spots as well. And then on defense he guards so it helps me a lot on defense, whether it be showing me something on the help side or on the ball the defense. I think he’s great on both sides of the ball,” said Quickley.

The Knicks are currently outscoring opponents by 42 points with Quickley and Rose on the court together.

Quickley added that he and Rose are both able to bring up the ball, reminding him of pickup basketball.

“It’s kind of like pickup, whoever gets it, gets it. He told me if I get it, don’t look back at him, just go out and hoop and do what I do and I feel the same way for him.

“So it’s kind of like pick up. Whoever gets it, gets it. And we kind of play off each other and I feel like when you’re playing with somebody that’s good, or great, really, it just makes the game a lot easier.”
