Thabo's back tonight, although he'll surely be in 'earn your way' mode. Which makes sense, even if it hasn't made sense in other cases.
The Jazz are oddly bad (14-19) on the road, so there's hope. Despite their Sloan-ness, they are only average defensively, although because of their Sloan-ness, they lead the league in fouls. Luckily the Bulls can handle a high-octane offense, and on that end themselves they're full of strong-willed-and-bodied slashers and finishers. Uh...
My handy Bulls.com newsletter lists Kirilenko as day-to-day and the Jazz starting 3 guards in Deron Williams, C.J. Miles, and Thabo-draft-contemporary Ronnie Brewer. Resist the temptation Boylan.
Below is where you and I whine about how Boylan thinks that the Gooden-Noc (nickamed "it's time") frontcourt is swell because it 'matches up' with Boozer and Okur. Something about spacing.
