The Chicago Bulls are on a four-game winning, and the Boston Celtics just lost to the Los Angeles Clippers who were missing a good performance from Blake Griffin.

Do the Bulls smell blood?

Chicago has won three of their last four, and two of those wins were against Orlando and Miami on the road.

Derrick Rose has been making a strong case to be the first Bulls' Most Valuable Player since Michael Jordan.

Rose is averaging 24.6 points per game, and 8.1 assists a game. More importantly, Rose has been a leader. He's giving Chicago important shots at big moments.

The Bulls could use some good medical news. In the victory over the Charlotte Bobcats, Carlos Boozer was hobbled after a rough play involving Kwame Brown.

Boozer limped off the court with an ankle injury. There's still no word as to the extent of the injury.

The former Jazz forward is averaging 18.5 points per game, along with 9.6 rebounds.

Boston are still looking to gel with new additions Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic. Some of the Boston players were disappointed to lose starting center Kendrick Perkins and backup point guard Nate Robinson.

The Celtics had their five-game winning streak snapped by the Clippers on Wednesday, but Boston may be a little more vulnerable with perhaps some chemistry problems.

Krstic scored 20 points and nine rebounds in the home loss.

Green, however, has had only one strong game since joining the Celtics.
