Two days removed from an outstanding 120 point performance against the Denver Nuggets (on only 8 threes), the Grizz remain in Memphis as they host the, injury depleted, Chicago Bulls tonight (8PM ET on NBA TV).
This will be the team’s 18th game in Memphis, and 30th on the season – with a record of 13-16 (12th in the West).
The Bulls hold the 9th seed in the Eastern Conference, at 11-17.
The Grizzlies have won 12 of the past 14 home matchups with the Bulls, holding them to an average of 88.9 points.
The Bulls are 3-7 in their last ten games and are 4-11 on the road.

Based on their current results, the Bulls average out to losing each game by 1.5 points, while the Grizz sit at a 2.8 point loss on average.
The Bulls will likely be without Luol Deng, who has missed the last four games due to a sore Achilles.
