Bulls Vs. Pistons: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Chicago Bulls (5-1) will take their four game winning streak on the road on Wednesday night to face the Detroit Pistons (2-3), the former employer of Bulls SG Richard Hamilton. Hamilton, who has missed Chicago's last two games, will be a game-time decision with a groin injury, but you have to imagine that Hamilton wants to be out on the floor after his messy break up with the franchise where he spent nine years of his career.

While the Bulls are hoping for an easier victory than the 76-74 stunner they pulled off against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, the Pistons will be looking to knock off one of the East's elite teams for the third game in a row. After starting the season an uninspiring 0-3, the Pistons have won two straight games, knocking off the Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic in the process.

Despite the relative star power in the Detroit backcourt, it's been the young frontcourt of Greg Monroe and Jonas Jerebko that has powered the Pistons on their short win streak. The Bulls' vaunted low post combination of Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Omer Asik and Taj Gibson will certainly present a challenge for the Pistons' duo, and it may just decide Wednesday night's game.

Game day/time: Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2012, 6:30 p.m. CT
