|Derrick Rose||PG||Darren Collison|
The Indiana Pacers host the Chicago Bulls tonight at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Bulls arrive as the top team in the East after their win last night over New Jersey Nets put them a half game up on the Boston Celtics.
Forward Carlos Boozer has missed the past three games with an ankle injury and is listed as day-to-day, but his absence hasn't slowed down the Bulls a bit considering they've won eight games in a row. In their last visit to the Fieldhouse, Derrick Rose made it all happen at crunch time and he will obviously be the key to the game tonight.
The Pacers can play really well and give themselves a chance to win, but ultimately the blue and gold are at the mercy of Rose. If he's on point, there's not much that can be done.
