Rose committed eight turnovers in the 107-104 loss and believes that his poor display was a big reason behind the disappointment at the Wells Fargo Center.
"I would blame tonight on me," the 2011 MVP told reporters. "Turnovers, missed shots, miscommunication - I just couldn't get in my groove."
"At the end, they got to almost every loose ball and hit almost every shot they needed to win the game."
The Bulls face the Indiana Pacers in their next game on Wednesday night.
