Celtics (50-30) at Bulls (39-41)

Game time: 8pm, United Center, Chicago. TV – TNT, CSN. Radio – WEEI-AM (850).

Team Leaders

Scoring
Bos: Pierce – 18.1                  Bulls: Derrick Rose -
20.4

Rebounding
Bos: Perkins – 7.6                 
Bulls: Joakim Noah – 10.9

Assists
Bos: Rondo – 9.8                    Bulls: Rose - 6.0

Who'll go off: Ray Allen. He's got the hot hand (shooting 54.8 percent (40-for-73) in his past seven games) and might get even more looks if Paul Pierce sits this one out.  

Who needs to be stopped:  Joakim Noah is averaging 17 points and 13.7 rebounds in his past three
games.

The C's will lose if…  The Bulls need this win to stay in the 8th spot. I do not see the Celtics matching their energy in this game.

Miscellany:  The Celtics lead the season series 2-1. Chicago leads the NBA in rebounding at 44.5 per game.

Prediction:  Chicago 101 – Celtics 96
