This Chicago team has worked themselves give games over .500 as the team was mired in injuries. Derrick Rose has been lost for the season but the Bulls have gone through a season without Rose liked they did last season. The issue is when other players start to get banged up and it’s a double whammy for Chicago as they will be without two impact stars when a player goes down in the current rotation when you factor the Rose injury. Chicago has won seven of their past eight games and is coming off a blowout 20 point home win to a Western conference team on Wednesday as they crushed the Golden St Warriors. The Bulls will be rested in this spot as they get a day off on Thursday. The Bulls are doing it with defense again. They allow opponents just 92.3 points per game along with 43.2% shooting from the floor. That calculates to a number two ranking in both scoring and field goal defense season to date. Chicago has allowed under 100 points in seven of their past eight games and have won seven of those eight contest when they achieved that feat. Dallas has not defended well this season.
