The Detroit Pistons haven't rolled over yet against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center, but through three quarters Chicago's superior talent has been enough to give the Bulls a 68-59 lead. Neither team is shooting above 45% and much of the action has been sloppy. The Pistons have never lead in the game. This is the first of three consecutive games for Chicago.
Carlos Boozer leads the Bulls with 20 points and eight rebounds on 9-of-13 shooting. Reigning MVP Derrick Rose 18 on 6-of-14 shooting, but is 1-for-6 from three-point range. Ronnie Brewer got the start at shooting guard for the injured Rip Hamilton, and has 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting. Center Joakim Noah continues to struggle, with just four points on 2-of-11 shooting.
Center Greg Monroe leads Detroit with 14 points and nine rebounds.
