CHICAGO: GUARDS: After playing it very safe and sitting out all of last spring, DERRICK ROSE should pretty much be his old self. Of course, he'll have to knock some rust off early in the year . . . JIMMY BUTLER was an iron man during last year's playoffs, and his role will only grow this season. His defense and energy, as well as ability to get to the line, could make Luol Deng expendable . . . MIKE DUNLEAVY is in line for the sixth man role, primarily as a long-range threat . . . With Rose's return, KIRK HINRICH slides back to the bench. His playing time will be especially limited with Dunleavy taking up minutes at the two . . . MARQUIS TEAGUE will continue to be used only in garbage time unless Hinrich ends up getting hurt or traded. FORWARDS: LUOL DENG is back on the trading block, as the Bulls learned life isn't so bad without him now that Jimmy Butler has emerged. His offensive role could be slightly reduced . . . CARLOS BOOZER will likely be amnestied next summer, so for all intents and purposes this is a contract year. He's likely to still be a disaster defensively, which means he's a part-time player under defensive-minded head coach Tom Thibodeau . . . TAJ GIBSON will finish games and likely take over Boozer's spot a year from now. He's a superior defender and, while he doesn't have Boozer's range, he's a capable finisher around the rim . . . Rookie TONY SNELL is a Thibodeau kind of player, a long-armed, athletic perimeter defender. He's unlikely to ever do much on offense though. CENTERS: JOAKIM NOAH may be consistently banged up, but he's capable of playing through the pain. Depending on the Bulls' playoff position, he might sit some games late in the year, but Thibodeau isn't shy about playing him 35 minutes per night . . . NAZR MOHAMMED is back as a designated screener on offense and hacker on defense..
PHILADELPHIA: GUARDS: Welcome to Tankadelphia. MICHAEL CARTER-WILLIAMS will be handed the reigns at the point, and has the size and savvy to create some offense. But a work-in-progress jumper and too many risky passes will lead to plenty of lost possessions . . . The Sixers would love to unload perennially disappointing ex-No. 2 pick EVAN TURNER. He's yet to develop a jump shot, and while he'll start for a laughably thin Philly team, he looks more and more like a second-unit player . . . JAMES ANDERSON could end up playing a lot of minutes off the bench, simply because the Sixers don't have enough NBA-caliber players . . . JASON RICHARDSON will miss at least half the season after major knee surgery. He may never contribute in the NBA again'TONY WROTEN could see the floor plenty as a high-upside player who must cut down on his turnovers and improve his jump shot. FORWARDS: THADDEUS YOUNG will likely step up as the No. 1 option, and he very well may be the only player on this team that would make a rotation of a playoff contender. We'll see what he can do with defenses focused on stopping him . . . LAVOY ALLEN will be leaned on for heavy minutes as one of their few proven players . . . ARNETT MOULTRIE might end up with a very big role this year, as the Sixers are especially lacking post players. He at least rebounds and gets in people's way defensively . . . Philly will try its hand with ROYCE WHITE, who has plenty of talent but just as much baggage. He and the Rockets couldn't see eye-to-eye with how to manage his anxiety issues . . . TIM OHLBRECHT might actually see the court on this team. CENTERS: SPENCER HAWES should start at center, especially early. His mid-range shooting makes him one of the few offensive options on this team . . . Coming off a torn ACL, NERLENS NOEL probably won't be ready until December. He should contribute as a rim protector and rebounder, but will be pushed around and doesn't have much on offense . . . KWAME BROWN is waiting for his contract to be bought out.

*Bulls-76ers Preview* =====================


Chicago (1-1) at Philadelphia (1-0), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Chicago Bulls haven't looked much like the regular-season juggernaut they once were so far in Derrick Rose's first two games back, but the former MVP has little doubt his team is about to start clicking.

To the surprise of almost everyone, the Philadelphia 76ers already are.

Rose and the Bulls look for a more complete effort Saturday night in Philadelphia, where the 76ers look to continue their stunning start with a third straight victory.

Rose hit a baseline floater with 5.7 seconds left Thursday to provide the final points in Chicago's 82-81 victory over the Knicks, but there were still plenty of concerns for the team that finished with the NBA's best record in each of the last two seasons Rose was healthy.

The Bulls (1-1) led by 10 at the beginning of the fourth quarter before scoring just 11 points in the final 12 minutes. Their only two field goals came from Rose, who shot 7 of 23 from the floor and finished with more turnovers (four) than assists (three) for the second straight game.

"(Rose) showed a lot of toughness," coach Tom Thibodeau told the Bulls' official website. "He kept working the game when things weren't going his way. Right now we have to count on our defense and rebounding to get us through this."

Rose, who's shooting 28.9 percent (11 of 38) thus far, feels like it's only a matter of time before Chicago's offense begins to come around - starting with his own.

"It's going to be scary when all those shots are falling," Rose said. "I can't think about it. I've got to have quick amnesia. The shots (for the team) are not falling right now. When they do fall, I think we are going to be a dangerous team."

The 76ers (2-0) aren't having any issues getting shots to go down. Seemingly in full rebuilding mode and picked by many to be the league's worst team, Philadelphia shocked Miami 114-110 in its opener Wednesday before rallying from 12 down midway through the third quarter Friday to win 109-102 at Washington.

"It's only two," first-year coach Brett Brown said, "but we sure are happy."

Rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams followed his 22-point, 12-assist, nine-steal debut by scoring 12 of his 14 after halftime Friday, but it's been the 76ers' front line that has made the biggest impact thus far. Philadelphia outscored the Heat 50-36 in the paint and held a 40-30 rebounding edge, then put up 74 points in the lane against the Wizards.

Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes combined for 60 points against Miami and 68 in Washington.

"We have a lot of confidence in each other," Carter-Williams said. "And not by any means are we going to go out there and play like we don't want to win. There's a bunch of winners on this team."

Turner, Young and Hawes figure to have their hands full inside Saturday. The Bulls have outscored their first two opponents 96-58 in the paint.

Philadelphia has had trouble scoring anywhere against Chicago since Rose tore his ACL in Game 1 of the teams' 2012 first-round playoff series. The Bulls have won five straight in the series, holding the 76ers to an average of 86.0 points and 41.7 percent shooting - 21.3 percent from 3-point range.

Joakim Noah has just eight points this season, but he's been the key to the Rose-less Bulls' success against Philadelphia. He's averaged 16.0 points, 14.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks during Chicago's winning streak in the series, including a 23-point, 21-board, 11-block triple-double in a 93-82 home win Feb. 28.

Philadelphia last started 3-0 in 2006-07.
