Last night’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals featuring the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers closed out in epic fashion with Derrick Rose becoming the hero once again.

With the game tied and three seconds left on the clock, Rose reopened the bank after business hours and hit a three-pointer much to the chagrin of LeBron James and the rest of the Cavs.

The shot gave Rose a total of 30 points (with 24 of those coming in the second half). LeBron James had a strong game as well, scoring 27 points, dishing out 14 assists and grabbing eight rebounds, but he also seemed to be distracted by Joakim Noah’s trash talking, which earned him a technical foul to add to his forgettable seven turnovers.

The Internet is a breeding ground for Derrick Rose memes but this time around, the force was with the oft-injured All-Star and they celebrated his stoic demeanor after he put his team up 2-1 in the series. Coincidentally, the shot came 26 years and one day later the game winner Michael Jordan hit against the Cavs in the 1989 Eastern Conference Playoffs.

Flip through the gallery to see the latest batch of Derrick Rose memes. Nothing but pure comedy ahead.
