The Bulls may be without PG Derrick Rose yet again, but can they overcome the high-powered Nuggets offense without him?

The Chicago Bulls (40-10) look to build their win streak to five straight against the Denver Nuggets (26-23) on Monday night, even though they may be again without two of their starters, reigning MVP PG Derrick Rose and free agent acquisition SG Richard Hamilton:

The Bulls narrowly beat the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night, winning in a last-second tip in from SF Luol Deng. On Monday night, the Bulls face a Nuggets team that leads the NBA in points per game with 103.6 and shoots a third-best .469 shooting percentage.

The Nuggets, who also allow a second-most 102.5 points per game, will have a unique challenge facing a Bulls defense that has allowed the second-least points in the league with just 88.7 points per game.

Game Time: 7:00 p.m. CDT, Monday, 3/26

Locations: United Center (home)

Broadcast: CSN-Chicago, NBATV, ESPN 1000 (radio), WRTO 1200 (radio)
