The Chicago Bulls travel to Boston to play the Celtics on Friday night. This will mark the second and final trip the Bulls will make to Boston during the regular season.
The first meeting, the Bulls fell to the Celtics in overtime, 110-105. The Celtics have been tough at home this season, winning eight of its first nine. The Bulls hope the second meeting is different.
Carlos Boozer will start again tonight for the Bulls, and he had a forgettable debut, returning from injury. The 6'9'' power forward had five points and three rebounds in only 20 minutes.
"I think our team (is) a lot better than we showed," said Boozer, Chicago's top summer free-agent acquisition. "We're going to move forward."
To be considered one of the league's best, the Bulls need to have a better showing then Wednesday night when the Magic exploded to a 107-78 victory. The Bulls finished with an all-time low 21 rebounds.
