Bulls Vs. Celtics Preview: Chicago Hosts Boston Thursday Night

Chicago is out for a little revenge.

The Chicago Bulls finally returned home on Tuesday, and on Thursday night they'll have a shot to avenge a loss to the Boston Celtics last Sunday. Boston point guard Rajon Rondo had a huge day in that win by the Celtics -- 32 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds. If the Bulls are to avoid another loss to the Celtics, doing a better job defensively on Rondo would be a good place to start.

Led by Rondo's efforts, Boston shot 49.3% from the field on Sunday, compared to 38.6% by the Rose-less Chicago Bulls.

While Chicago's injury woes have been well-documents, the Celtics also have had some injury troubles of late.

Game Date & Time: Thursday, Feb. 16, 7:00 p.m. CT
