Pistons Vs. Bulls: Detroit Can Move To .500 With Win

Detroit's two-game win streak is in jeopardy Wednesday night at home against Chicago.

The Detroit Pistons have won two in a row after a three-game losing streak to start the season, but the 5-1 Chicago Bulls will present a formidable task tonight if the Pistons are going to climb to .500. The Bulls have won four in a row and feature reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose, who is averaging 21.5 points per game.

Luol Deng has also been solid for Chicago at 17.7 per game, while the addition of 12 points per contest from former Piston Richard Hamilton has Chicago looking better than the team that won the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed in last year's playoffs.

Ben Gordon, who used to play for the Bulls, leads Detroit at 18 points per game, but defensively Detroit must be able to match up and slow down Rose, a force who can get to the basket with ease.
