The Chicago Bulls have been short-handed all year, but they have done a nice job staying right around the top of the NBA Central Division. Chicago is one of the few teams in the NBA that has been better on the road than they have been at home. Utah is consistently one of the best home teams in the NBA, and this year is no different. Can the Bulls come out of Utah with a win or will the Jazz continue their home dominance?
San Antonio will be going for its 11th-straight victory on Wednesday night at the Target Center, but it will not be easy with two of its top players out of the lineup.

Can they send the Knicks to their third straight loss?
