Bulls Vs. Trail Blazers: Can The Bulls Cool Off The Blazers?

The Bulls pulled off one of their biggest comeback wins ever when they erased a fourth-quarter deficit, outscored the Pistons 34-9 in that quarter on the strength of a 19-2 run, and won by 10.

Tonight, they'll face a Portland Trail Blazers team that is off to its best start in 11 years at 3-0 (they won their first four in 1999-2000). Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 9.7 rebounds a game, and the Blazers have yet to allow any of their opponents to score 100 points. Marcus Camby, Brandon Roy, Andre Miller and Nicolas Batum round out the expected starting five for the Blazers tonight.

The Bulls counter with Derrick Rose, who had a career-high tying 39 points on Saturday night; Joakim Noah, who has 36 rebounds in the Bulls' two games so far; Taj Gibson, Keith Bogans and Luol Deng.

The game will begin at 7 p.m. CDT and be televised on CSN Chicago.
