Derrick Rose had seven points, four rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during USA's 95-78 win over Brazil in an exhibition game at the United Center.
Rose was introduced last and receive a warm welcome from the crowd.
"That was huge. I was surprised I didn't get nervous out there," Rose said.
"All summer long I think he's gotten more comfortable," said Chicago Bulls head coach and U.S. assistant Tom Thibodeau. "He went through the comeback last year and learned a lot from it. I love the way he's playing. He's finding the rhythm of the game and he's playing to his strengths."
