Open Game Thread #49: Bulls at Golden State Warriors

[Big thanks to wjb1492 for today's game preview. -Matt]

Last night, the few Bulls actually available to play came close to beating the Blazers.  With Lu, BG and Kirk on the bench with injuries, and Veektor on his way to freedom, Noc, Du, and Thabo all logged 40+ minutes of PT.  Senior citizens Ben Wallace and Joe Smith both played 30 minutes or more.  Ty even got more than one stint of PT.  And tonight's opponent, the Golden State Warriors?  They were enjoying their 5th night in a row off.  Maybe they'll be rusty...

The second night of back-to-backs has not been good for the Bulls this season, with a dismal record of 3 and 9.  On top of that, the team will be playing short handed again, and those guys that went 40 minutes last night could be playing on fumes against the well-rested and up-tempo Warriors.  And just for fun, in the event of a total blow-out, the game is on TNT (the late one, no less!)so we can get Sir Charles and crew's take on the Bulls' shortcomings.  All of which means I'm going to be royally pissed when I have to get up tomorrow morning on a short night's sleep, unless the Bulls manage to pull off the win tonight.  According to accuscore, which gives the Bulls only a 21% probablity of winning, we should all just go to bed.  On the other hand, who'd want to skip Chris Webber's return?  I'm almost as intrigued to see how he fits in with GS as I am to watch Shaq run with the Suns.  Hey, it's not like the Bulls have new additions for us to wonder about.

Get well soon, Kirk, Lu and BG.  I miss my delusional expectations of winning.
