Well the weather in Chicago is certainly not helping the mood, but Derrick Rose’s injury hangs over all the rest.
The Chicago Bulls are not going to be favored in many more games this season, and despite great defensive energy every night you have to wonder if their general manager will consider blowing this thing up.
They tip off tonight at 7:30 PM EST against a Detroit Pistons team that has a young and talented roster that looks like it could land in the playoffs at season’s end.
Here is the TV info on that one, and keep an eye out for two more of these previews later this morning.

The Pistons are favored (-3.5), but not by a lot so would probably take them on the over. They have quite a few quality big men, and it will be tough for the Bulls to hang with them for four quarters especially with Rose not creating offense with the ball in his hands.
It is a real bummer for Chicago basketball fans, many of whom have told me they will not be watching the Bulls anymore. That is sad, because they put such forth intense defensive effort so hope there are still some die-hards out there who will hold it down for the rest of the year.
