CHICAGO (WSCR) Keith Bogans didn’t practice Tuesday morning but will play and start in Game 5 against the Atlanta Hawks. Bogans got some precautionary extra rest from Tom Thibodeau for his sore right ankle. Thibodeau went out of his way to say that Carlos Boozer is feeling better and that his injured toe is not causing him as much discomfort. Look for the Bulls to try and establish Boozer a lot more at the beginning of Tuesday night’s game. Thibodeau has always been a proponent of the inside-outside offensive game. That means have the defense concentrate on the low-post scoring of Boozer, and that should open up the lane for Derrick Rose to drive and the perimeter players to get more open jump shots.

Thibodeau (as always) downplayed the game. All year he has been a master of taking them one at a time and he doesn’t view tonight’s contest differently from any other.

Kyle Korver also said that the Bulls have worked all year to get the home court advantage and hopes the United Center is rocking Tuesday night. Korver also said he certainly hopes to shoot better then he did in Game 4 (1-for-8) and that he just needs to slow down a bit.
