Reporting David Schuster
By David Schuster–
The Chicago Bulls will be at full strength for tonight’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, as everyone practiced at this morning’s shoot around. Luol Deng, C.J. Watson and Taj Gibson all were back on the court after sitting on Monday. The Bulls enter today’s action still leading Boston by one game for the No. 1 seed and home court advantage in the Eastern Conference.
And although the focus is on the Grizzlies tonight, there was some bragging and sulking going on from last night’s NCAA action. Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer were unusually quiet and contrite as their alma mater Duke was eliminated. But the opposite of quiet was Joakim Noah who saw his school, Florida, advance on, and are now part of the final eight. In fact Noah has now converted his coach, Tom Thibodeau into being a Gator’s fan.
The Bulls have won 13 in a row at the United Center and have an overall record of 31-4 in their building which is far and away the best home record in the Eastern Conference. And as for tickets for the upcoming playoffs you had better know somebody because they went on sale this morning and they’re going fast…real fast.
