Chicago Bulls vs. Memphis Grizzlies Monday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

Chicago Bulls: This Time Marquis Teague Will Actually Play For The D-League

Mark D. Smith – USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls go on the road against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight at 8 PM EST, and if you wanted the TV info for this one then here is a little something we, in the biz, like to call shoe-money.

TV: WCIU, NBA TV, DTV: 216

Small forward Luol Deng is questionable; point guard Mike Conley is probable, and superstar Derrick Rose is up a poop creek with a broken paddle. The Grizzlies will struggle to keep the Bulls off the board in this one, and it should be a resounding victory with probably a fifteen rebound effort from hairy center Joakim Noah. The Griz are favored at home (-5), but just have a feeling about this one and honestly have real trouble betting against Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau in the regular season unless it is LeBron James playing him. It will be interesting to see if the head coach uses a different lineup in the first quarter after the loss in the latest game.

“When we broke the lineup, it got away from us,” Thibodeau said after the loss.

Do not let him fool you though; the Bulls will come to play and even if they lose it still should be a close match. Also, for any Bulls fans out there still thinking that Rose is going to come back, just let it go okay? If it happens, then take it as a pleasant surprise. For the moment though, just let it go.

One more preview coming your way today, and then going to go have lunch with the sis because family is important folks! Go get it.

President Obama's Got Jokes About Warriors, 1995-96 Bulls

The Golden State Warriors recently visited the White House to be acknowledged for their 2014-15 NBA championship. As you may know, President Obama is a huge fan of basketball, and especially his beloved Chicago Bulls. While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

Pau Gasol Puts "Shake and Bake" On Kobe Bryant

The Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls squared off on Thursday night, so naturally all eyes were on former teammates Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. The two had a nice embrace prior to opening whistle, but it was strictly business once the game got started. Don't believe me? Just check out this "Shake and Bake" executed to perfection by Gasol.

Watch Chalmers Hit Miraculous Game Winner

This play was simply unbelievable. Mario Chalmers had no time to think or to look towards the basket. He just picks the loose ball up off the court and flips it towards the rim and it goes in! Just an amazing play and a huge win for the Memphis Grizzlies.

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
