Tonight: Bulls @ Clippers

30 Dec 2011

Staples Center, Los Angeles, 9:30 CT, WGN & NBA TV

Questions

1. What is the current state of Chicago’s pick-and-roll defense? It’s all about rhythm and timing and coordination, one man covering for the next, and that rhythm hasn’t fully been there the first three games. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin can be handled, especially in their infancy as a pick-and-roll duo, but not by just any old defense.

2. Can the Bulls and Carlos Boozer take advantage of Griffin on the other end? For all his athletic gifts, Griffin allowed DeJuan Blair 20 points on 10-of-15 shooting in Wednesday’s loss in San Antonio, and the Clippers were minus-37 with him on the floor. Something tells me Boozer won’t be banging bodies underneath like Blair does, but he should be able to find a few holes.
