2012 NBA schedule: Bulls face Grizzlies, Celtics this week

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Bulls have taken first place, but it will be a challenge to hold on to that spot against some tough competition.

The Chicago Bulls travel to Memphis to face the Grizzlies at 7 p.m. CT on Monday night. The Bulls have won their last two games to grab sole possession of first place at 13-9. The Grizzlies have cooled off a bit after a fast start, but do have a 15-6 record overall.

Chicago returns home to Tuesday to host the Boston Celtics in a battle of perennial East contenders. The Celtics are off to a slow start, at just 12-11. The two teams met in the United Center on Nov. 12, with Boston grabbing a 101-95 victory.

Around the league, Jeremy Lin makes his return to Madison Square Garden as the Rockets face the Knicks at 7:30 p.m. on Monday. A key Western Conference battle also happens on Monday, as the Thunder face the Spurs at 8 p.m. in Oklahoma City.

The Knicks host another big game on Wednesday as they continue the "Battle of the Boroughs" series at 7 p.m. against the Brooklyn Nets.
