Bulls Vs. Magic Preview: Chicago Gets A Look At Dwight Howard

The Chicago Bulls have won eight straight games and are about to embark on a homestand that surely qualifies as "March Madness". First up is the Orlando Magic and their superstar center Dwight Howard, the first of many All-Stars the United Center will get a first-hand look at over the next two weeks.

This will be the second of three meetings between the Chicago and the Magic. In the first, the Bulls defeated Orlando 97-93, despite Howard going off for 28 points and 15 rebounds. It will be interesting to see how Joakim Noah -- who's been playing really great lately (20 points, 10 rebounds last night vs. the Bucks) fares against Howard this time around.

The rest of the homestand looks like this: Jazz, Knicks, Heat, Trail Blazers, 76ers. That's a lot of playoff teams.

Game date/time: 7:00 p.m., Thursday, March 8, 2012

Location: United Center, Chicago, IL
