Chicago vs. Portland
The Chicago Bulls face the Portland Trailblazers tonight just one game behind Atlanta for the 5th spot in the Eastern conference. The Bulls match up better against Brooklyn than they to against the Knicks so seeding in the playoffs is becoming increasingly important. The Trailblazers have no such concerns as they are currently 4 games back of the 8 spot with 15 left to play. At least Portland scored big with rookie of the year candidate Damian Lillard. That's a piece the organization can build around. As for tonight's game? Look for Joakim Noah to do his thing on the boards and Carlos Boozer to chip in with a modest 15 or so points. The Bulls will win this one going away.
