Following Monday's preseason game in St. Louis, Derrick Rose talked about coach Tom Thibodeau's practice demeanor, compared to his sideline demeanor, which is often angry.

“I think in games, he knows that there’s TV and people around," Rose said, according to "In practice, it’s just us, no cameras, no nothing, so it gets very, very crazy in practice."

The Bulls beat Memphis 106-87 on Monday to improve to 2-0 in preseason. Next up is a four-day trip to Rio de Janeiro. The team was scheduled to depart late Tuesday night and will face Washington on Saturday for the NBA's first South American game.

"I think it’s critical for us to understand that it’s a business trip," Thibodeau said after Monday's game. "We’re not going there to have a party. This is training camp for us."
