The Bulls are definitely missing Derrick Rose and it is a miracle they are seven games above .500 at this point in time.  Bulls have been struggling to find consistent scoring and the best offensive threat is Nate Robinson.  If your best play maker/scorer is Nate Robinson then my friend, you got issues.

The 76ers on the other side of the court have appeared to have quit on Doug Collins.  Collins is in year three of as coach of the 76ers.  Funny thing about Collins; he's never made it to a fourth year of any of his coaching stints.  Rumors are flying that since the 76ers are not performing up to par (could have used Bynum) that Collins is probably going to get the axe at the end of the season.

Best Matchup - Holiday vs. Robinson.  A little Pac-12 vs. Pac-12 rivalry.  Sure they never faced each other once in college, but UW will always want to out do someone from UCLA.  Will Nate Robinson shoot 30 times tonight?  Probably.

Prediction: Bulls play tough, ugly basketball.  If you ask some my friends in Philly the 76ers don't play anything that regards basketball.  So, take the Bulls (-7.5) in a very ugly, 78-69.
