Your 44-20 Houston Rockets continue their short road trip in Chicago to face the 35-29 Bulls. The Bulls are coming off a rough loss against the Spurs Tuesday night and the Rockets are coming off a loss of there own against the Thunder. The Rockets lead the season series 1-0 after defeating the Bulls by 15 earlier this season. Tonight’s game is scheduled for 6:00 PM and can be seen on TNT.
Beverley has been all over the news as of late regarding his “peskiness” or as some say, his “dirty” play. He will be in the spotlight again tonight. The Bulls run with both Hinrich and Augustin, Rockets run with both Beverley and Lin.
Butler is an up-and-coming player in the NBA and he should be able to frustrate Harden a bit. A tough matchup for Harden but he should still drop his 25-plus.
Wasn’t Dunleavy supposed to be a member of the Rockets by now?
Is there anyone that Rockets fans hate more than this chump?
Some of the talk amongst media around the NBA is about which center is the best in the league. Noah is playing at an extremely high level right now, whereas Howard is coming off a rough game. Howard is the better center but Noah is playing better right now.
Rockets – Greg Smith
Bulls – Derrick Rose
Prediction – Tom Thibodeau and the Bulls have to be angry at their effort against the Spurs. They’ll be angry but I don’t think it will be eougn. I expect a close tight game but the Rockets win 98-94.
