The Indiana Pacers take on the Chicago Bulls tonight at the United Center. Seeing the Bulls on the schedule has become an unsettling experience thanks in large part to the MVP-level play of point guard Derrick Rose.

The Pacers had their offense flowing last night but admittedly found little resistance from the visiting New Jersey Nets. The Bulls will certainly put any offensive improvement to the test tonight.

Both teams are coming off games last night, but the Pacers could catch a break by catching the Bulls in a vulnerable position. The Bulls gutted out a tough win against Orlando last night led by Rose who went into the game dealing with the effects of the flu and a couple of stomach ulcers. The Bulls are human and surely will exhale after getting that big win and seeing the Pacers come to town.

The Pacers will try to build on their effort last night. Tyler Hansbrough will apparently be a game-time decision after missing last night's game. If he's cleared by the doctors, it will be interesting to see if he returns to the starting lineup or comes off the bench to keep his minutes in check.

Here's the Pacers.com preview.
