NBA players took to Twitter to celebrate the return to form of 2011 MVP Derrick Rose.

Now with the Minnesota Timberwolves, injuries dimmed the lights on one of the league's most explosive players. After parting ways with the Chicago Bulls, Rose had unremarkable stints with the New York Knicks and the Cleveland Cavaliers, before reuniting last season with his former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau with the T-Wolves.

Entering today's game against the Jazz, Rose was having a quietly productive season, scoring in double-digits for all but the season-opener, while averaging 14.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 4.9 assists. But with Jeff Teague sidelined, he was elevated to the starting lineup, and he responded in a very, very impressive way.

Check out how Twitter reacted to his play below:
