The Chicago Bulls have had to contend with a lot of injuries this season, but those setbacks haven't done much to slow the team down from a win-loss perspective -- the Bulls have the best record in the NBA, and they're four games ahead of Miami for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Derrick Rose has not played since March 12, but the team is 6-2 without him.

They'll try to keep things rolling this weekend, when they face the Detroit Pistons and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The full team schedule is available here, and this is the weekend ahead:
Friday, March 30: vs. Detroit Pistons (7:00 p.m. CT, CSN)
The Pistons are primarily playing for pride at this point, because while they have not been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, it's going to be very difficult for them to make up the 7.5 games by which they trail the East's eighth place team, the New York Knicks. Rodney Stuckey leads Detroit in scoring with 16.1 points per game.

Sunday, April 1: at Oklahoma City Thunder (12:00 p.m. CT, ABC)
In what could be a potential NBA Finals preview, the Bulls will take on a Thunder team that has the best record in the West. Kevin Durant leads the Thunder with a 27.8 scoring average.
