Bulls Vs. Pacers Preview: Derrick Rose, Chicago Seek Revenge Against Indiana

The Chicago Bulls host the Indiana Pacers tonight at the United Center.

Derrick Rose doesn't forget. After the Indiana Pacers handed the Chicago Bulls their first home loss of the season on January 25, Rose spit out perhaps the most memorable quote of the year, telling reporters:

"I'll never forget how they celebrated just from winning this game," Rose told reporters. "I can't wait to play them again."

Tonight at the United Center, Rose gets his chance.

The Pacers head into the divisional showdown playing as well as they have all season. Indiana has won six straight games, but with two wins over the Charlotte Bobcats and two wins over the New Orleans Hornets, the recent stretch hasn't been particularly difficult. A date with Rose and friends and UC changes all of that.

Chicago enters on a six-game winning streak of its own, and can count victories over playoff-bound teams in the San Antonio Spurs and Philadelphia 76ers during the run.

Game date/time: 7 p.m., Monday, March 5, 2012

Location: United Center, Chicago, Illinois

TV: WGN

Radio: ESPN 1000
