KEY GAME INFORMATION
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..
INDIANA: GUARDS: GEORGE HILL is less of a creator and more of a game-manager/scorer, which fits fine in this starting five . . . LANCE STEPHENSON continues to be an enigma. His speed pushing the ball in transition is an asset, but his terrible shooting and bizarre decision-making often makes him a liability in the half court . . . C.J. WATSON has proven to be a capable second-unit point guard, but he's on his third team in three years because he's managed to give away two playoff games with monumentally bad moments . . . ORLANDO JOHNSON is unlikely to see meaningful minutes, but his role should grow slightly now that Gerald Green is gone. FORWARDS: This is PAUL GEORGE'S team. Once a do-it-all role player, he's now polished enough to create his own offense . . . As expected, DAVID WEST bounced back in his second season off a torn ACL. He's still deadly as a mid-range shooter, a savvy passer and a strong rebounder . . . LUIS SCOLA slides into Tyler Hansbrough's old role as a second-unit banger, and insurance for West and Roy Hibbert . . . DANNY GRANGER is in no-man's land. He's not better than Paul George, and probably no longer an upgrade over Lance Stephenson. His best asset may be his expiring deal . . . CHRIS COPELAND can't defend, but gives the Pacers a three-point threat . . . SOLOMON HILL doesn't figure to contribute this season. CENTERS: ROY HIBBERT proved capable of handling more minutes last season, but Indy will likely still be cautious with their asthmatic 7-foot-2 center during the regular season . . . IAN MAHINMI is back to give his six fouls and move some bodies out of the paint.

*Bulls-Pacers Preview* ======================

By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer

Chicago (38-30) at Indiana (50-18), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Chicago and Indiana haven't met since the Bulls handed the Pacers their first loss in mid-November.

These Central Division rivals will quickly get reacquainted over the next few days.

The Bulls try to avoid a fourth consecutive road loss to the Pacers, who look to inch closer to clinching the division in the first of two upcoming showdowns Friday night.

Indiana (50-18) opened a franchise-best 9-0 before falling 110-94 at Chicago on Nov. 16. These teams also played 10 days earlier in Indianapolis, with the Pacers easily winning 97-80.

Indiana has taken four of six from Chicago, including three straight home matchups by an average of 10.7 points. Despite that success, coach Frank Vogel knows the Bulls present a difficult challenge.

"I think it's (coach) Tom Thibodeau and Joakim Noah. I think those two guys contribute enormously to winning basketball," Vogel, whose team visits Chicago on Monday, told the Pacers' official website. "With the way they're coached and the way they're led with the passion of Noah, I think that's what it's about."

The Pacers followed a season-worst four-game losing streak with four straight wins before Wednesday's 92-86 defeat at New York. Lance Stephenson and Roy Hibbert combined for 41 points, but Paul George shot 4 of 17 and scored 17.

"The right perspective is that we're playing pretty well, we have a really good team," Vogel said. "Nobody needs to panic and go nuts. Stay the course, keep doing what we're doing. We're winning a lot more than we're losing and just try to get better everyday. Really it's about building habits that are going to help us win playoff games. That's the biggest thing that we're trying to get accomplished right now."

Sitting 12 games ahead of the Bulls (38-30), the Pacers' magic number to win the division is three. Indiana, which has already secured a playoff berth, is three games ahead of Miami for the Eastern Conference's best record.

"With what we have going on, we would love to maximize on the opportunities and increase that lead but in the bigger scheme (of things), we're in a good position now," George said. "We've got to get back to playing some good basketball, though, because we have some tough games on our schedule that can come down to moving us to second or staying in first."

Chicago is seeking a fourth victory in five games after winning 102-94 at Philadelphia on Wednesday to extend the 76ers' franchise-record losing streak to 22.

"We had to be ready to play a whole game. We had to be ready to fight," Thibodeau told the Bulls' official website. "The thing to me is to find a way to win."

Former Pacers guard D.J. Augustin led six Bulls in double figures with 20 points, and fellow reserve Taj Gibson added 19 and 13 rebounds. Chicago shot 8 of 15 from 3-point range and held a 52-38 edge on the glass.

Noah is averaging 14.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, 7.9 assists and 2.6 blocks while shooting 53.7 percent over the last eight games. He scored a combined eight points while going 1 of 8 from the field against the Pacers in November.

Indiana is giving up an NBA-low 92.2 points per game, just ahead of Chicago's mark of 92.3. The Bulls are averaging 93.4 points to rank last in the league.
