The Bulls return home Monday night to face the Detroit Pistons at the United Center. Monday will be the first of three games in a row and five games in six nights for the Bulls. This amount of games in such a short amount of time is a by product of trying to get so many games played in a short amount of time after the lockout. This is happening to every team so no need to take pity on the Bulls.
Monday will be the second meeting of the year with the Pistons. The Bulls won the first matchup 99-83. Guard Richard Hamilton injured his groin in that game and hasn't played since. That was also the game that Derrick Rose injured his elbow, but hasn't missed any games because of it.
The probable starting lineups for Monday's matchup are as follows:
Pistons (2-6)- Brandon Knight, Ben Gordon, Tayshaun Prince, Jonas Jerebko, Greg Monroe.
Bulls (7-2)- Derrick Rose, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer.
The game is scheduled to start at 7:00. The game will be televised on CSN.
