Nov 23 vs Chicago Bulls
Gametime 7 pm Pacific Time
95.5FM The Game
After taking Sunday off, the Blazers battle the Bulls Monday night in the Rose Garden.
The injury bug has bitten the Bulls this season. They will be playing without the services of three of their players. Aaron Gray (Stress fracture of his left fibula), Jerome James (right Achilles), and Tyrus Thomas (broken arm) will all skip this game.
This will be the fourth game of a six game road trip for the Bulls, and is part of what they call their annual “Circus Trip”. Every year in November the Ringling Brothers Circus moves into the United Center for a couple of weeks and the Bulls and the Black Hawks are forced to take to the road.
With our big front line, you’d think we have no trouble dominating the boards. But since we’ve gone smaller with our starting lineup we have had trouble rebounding against some teams. Joakim Noah has been a rebounding machine for the Bulls this year and has led the league or been near the top in this statistic all season. Noah, as I recall, was manhandled and completely frustrated by our frontline in last seasons games with the Bulls. It will be fun to see how he does against them this season.
For more information on the Bulls, you can click on this link and view the teams 2009-10 media guide. The team publishes it online. That is way cool. I wish the Blazers would do this.
