After struggling with the athletic front line of the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night, the Pacers won't find much relief against the Bulls tonight with Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng looking to cause similar problems. The Pacers have struggled on the glass of late and will have to shore up their rebounding effort just to keep pace with the Bulls who come into the game second in the league in total rebound rate.
The Pacers could use a solid effort tonight regardless of the final outcome after winning ugly on Friday and then losing in even uglier fashion at Atlanta. Danny Granger is a game-time decision after turning his ankle and the point guard position is unsettled while staring at a brutal challenge in front of them tonight from Rose. I'm sure Rose took note of how Russell Westbrook destroyed the Pacers a few weeks ago.
