Boston 12-11 at Chicago 13-10
Result of last meeting: Boston 101 – Chicago 95
The Boston Celtics will take on the Chicago Bulls tonight in Chicago. They are coming off back to back losses over the weekend in Texas, losing on Friday to the Houston Rockets 101 to 89 and then on Saturday in San Antonio to the Spurs 103 – 88. In both games the Celtics played very well in spurts, but in the end were soundly beaten.
Tonight they will be facing a Bulls team that is coming off an 80 - 71 loss in Memphis last night.
