The Chicago Bulls have come out of the All-Star break and picked up right where they left off, and they've won four in a row overall. Derrick Rose and Richard Hamilton are back in the lineup and contributing once again, and the Bulls are neck-and-neck with Miami for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with fewer than 30 games left in the regular season.
Friday, March 2: at Cleveland Cavaliers (6:30 p.m. CT, CSN-Chicago+)
The Cavs struck gold when they drafted point guard Kyrie Irving in 2011, but they still have a lot of work to do in getting back to being a competitor in the East. Irving leads the team in scoring with 18.5 points per game.
Sunday, March 4: at Philadelphia 76ers (6:00 p.m. CT, CSN-Chicago and ESPN)
At 21-15 overall, the 76ers sit atop the Atlantic Division, and after finishing right at .500 a year ago, the franchise appears to be making progress.
