Will The Bulls get Piston(s)
Off to see The Bulls
tonight, who play their fiercest rivals Detroit Pistons
, a rivalry that grew this season after 4-time defensive player of the year Ben Wallace moved across Lake Michigan to help take the young Bulls team to the next level. In my experience also, it's one of the few games where there will be a healthy away contingent, sparking a bit more atmosphere.
Pistons lead the Eastern Conference
but Chicago are well on course to qualify for the end of season play-off's and qualify well. Before the start of the season, coach Scott Skiles set a target of just 10 home defeats (they play 41 games at home, and 41 away during the 'regular season') and although they do have the best home record in their conference, the Pistons have the best away one.
The Bulls go into tonight's game 27-9, of which I have seen 4 of the 9 losses and I have only been 4 times! So, on that basis expect the 10th defeat tonight.
