Chicago Bulls Vs. New Orleans Hornets: A Mystery

The Hornets are kind of a mystery to the Bulls -- they haven't faced them all year and the Bulls beat them in both matchups last year, but with a fairly large turnover in roster.

New Orleans is 33-22 coming into tonight's game, somewhat of a surprise, too, after going 37-45 all of last season and missing the playoffs. They are led by David West, who is averaging 19 points per game, and currently stand fifth in the Western Conference standings.

The Bulls may not seem that much better at 35-16, but with Derrick Rose coming off one of his better games of the season the other night in Salt Lake City, the Bulls look to make this a winning road trip. That would also give them a winning record on the road for the season; they're currently 12-12.

Tonight's game begins at 7 p.m. CST; it will be televised on WGN, both in Chicago and on WGN America.
