With the Memphis Grizzlies a favorite on the road against the Chicago Bulls one must take a hard look at the schedule and injury report. Both teams are on back to backs and playing their third game in four nights. Bulls forward Luol Deng has been declared doubtful for this game after reinjuring his hamstring last night against Boston. The Grizzlies have struggled in recent games as they just break a three game losing streak by beating up Sacramento last night by the score of 85-69 and covering the spread as a -9 ½ points favorite. The Grizzlies have been a good defensive team this season as they allow under 90 points per game and are second in the league in scoring defense. On the other side of the court the team has struggled shooting the basketball. Big men Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are OK but their shooters Rudy Gay, Tony Allen and Mike Conley hover around the 42% shooing mark. The Bulls are also a stout defensive club giving up 92 points a game and are third in the league in scoring defense. Without Derrick Rose in the lineup they looked to Luol Deng for scoring and he led the team with 17 points a night. Without Deng the Bulls are going to need greater contribution from their bench players like Nate Robertson and Marco Belinelli to provide some offense tonight.
