What to Watch For …

  • While I’m still not convinced that the Bulls are quite “back,” a perfect 3-0 week and a fourth straight win tonight would be an excellent start in thinking that maybe all of last week’s reported locker room drama may have ignited something inside of this team. That being said, dispatching a lowly Rockets squad is an absolute must, especially with the Bucks and Cavs on the slate this week for the Bulls.
  • The Rockets snaked the Bulls last season in a 118-113 in Houston in late November, but the Bulls followed that up with a convincing win over the Rockets at the United Center in December to earn a season split against Houston.
