The Chicago Bulls will resume play after the All-Star break on Tuesday, and they'll look to build on a two-game winning streak as the week progresses. The Bulls begin the second half of the season with a five-game lead on second place Indiana in the Central, and a half-game behind Miami for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

That's pretty impressive work for a team that has had plenty of injury issues so far. And they have a great opportunity to get off on the right foot this week, as there are two sub-.500 teams on the schedule.
