Gametime: 3 p.m. EST
There's not much I can say about the Bulls. Without Derrick Rose, they're just a middling team with a middling roster getting by on great coaching and effort. Those things are extremely necessary and appreciated, but can only get you so far. As Rose continues to recover from his ACL injury, the team has its share of highs and lows, including wins against the East's best teams yet also a recent loss by an estimated 237,019,732 points on Christmas Day against Houston.
As my dad put it, "I'll tell you what -- Chicago sucks."
But the question is do they suck more than Charlotte?
Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer will probably be the largest concerns for the Bobcats. Both are fantastic rebounders and should wreak havoc in the paint, especially on the offensive boards.
Also troubling is the Bulls are the 7th best team in opponent FG% at the rim.
