Injuries seem to be the story in tonight’s game. The Bulls Derrick Rose is expected to miss the game tonight with back spasms. He is listed as questionable for tonight as he has missed the past three games. For the Celtics veteran forward Kevin Garnett is questionable tonight with a hip flexor problem. He did not play on Wednesday night.

Boston has tailed off as the team has lost three of their past four games. They are coming off an ugly 98-88 home defeat last night to the lowly Detroit Pistons as a -9 ½ point favorite. The game went over the total of 181 ½ points. The Celtics defense let the team down last night as they gave up over 47% shooting to Detroit in the loss. Rajon Rhondo carried the team with 35 points in the defeat. The Celtics have struggled for offense this season as the club is 26th in the NBA with 90 points a game.

Chicago has won six of their past seven games and is 2-1 without Derrick Rose in the lineup. They dropped a 95-91 road loss without Rose on Sunday afternoon to the Boston Celtics. C.J. Watson has been inserted as point guard and has averaged 13 points and over 4 assists per game in Derrick Rose’s absence. The Bulls tonight will have the benefit of a day’s rest after having last played on Tuesday night in a 121-115 home victory against the Sacramento Kings as a -11 point betting favorite. The Celtics are paper thin behind Garnett in the power forward and center position so this sets up for big games from Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah tonight.
