Default Game Thread: Bulls @ Nuggets (9:00pm EST)

Chicago Bulls (2-7) vs Denver Nuggets (7-3)

Bulls' Injuries:

F - Loul Deng (Lower back pain) [Uncertain]

Nugget's Injuries:

F - Kenyon Martin (Lower back strain) [Probable]
F/C - Steven Hunter (Right knee surgery) [Out 6 weeks]
F/C - Nene Hilario (Left thumb surgery) [Out 6 weeks]

Richie's Keys to Success

* Force Hinrich to have a bad game - Hinrich averaged 24.5 points and 8.0 assists against Denver last season. Make him turn the ball over and have a bad overall game. He shot 3/11 and scored 8 points with 6 turnovers in his last game.

* Give Carmelo many touches - With Deng uncertain to play, the Bulls might have lost a key defender for Carmelo. Without Deng, a good defender, Carmelo should get more chances to score. He averaged 31.8 points in his last five games against Chicago. A good amount of points from Melo should be expected.

* Play good defense from start to finish - The Nuggets have allowed 94.8 ppg from their opponents over the last 5 games, which they have won all of. The Bulls are averaging 87.9 ppg on the season. On the other hand, the Bulls are allowing 96.4 ppg on the season defensively, while the Nuggets have scored 115.6 ppg over their last 5 games. If the Nuggets play solid defense, this should be a certified win.


Bulls' rebounding leader is Ben Wallace with only 6.7 rpg. Though the Bulls are rebounding the ball well as a team at 42.4 per game, they allow 44.8 by their opponents. Also, The Camby Man is coming off a 20 rebound game against the Knicks, his 3rd 20+ rebounding game this season. He's only not had double digit boards ONCE (8) this season, and he only played 29 minutes in that game. Expect Camby to have a good game on the glass.

I'm rooting for the Bulls. Hopefully Tyrus Thomas and Joe Smith steps up in the absence of Luol Deng.

thank god i do not get to watch this game today LOL. I hope we tank the season to get a good draft pick anyways. Ben wallace will suck. Hinrich will show why he needs to be in D league. Duhon will prove why he is the worse back-up to the worse player. other than that the rest of the team will play good. Denver = nba finals team so who ever thinks they are smart for picking denver think again.

No need to worry.

Well I can't watch it so all I have is the boxscore. Melo is scoring well as I assumed and the Nuggets are winning.

we've had 9 fewer shots than Chicago, yet we still lead by 15 points early in the second. Nice work.

Big part of all this scoring is free throws. Keep getting to the line baby.
