LOS ANGELES – Playing their first NBA game since Derrick Rose suffered a serious right knee injury, the Chicago Bulls were routed 121-82 by the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.

Rose missed all of last season recovering from a left knee injury and will undergo surgery Monday on a torn right knee ligament suffered in Friday’s 98-95 loss at Portland.
