It’s not going to be a good night to be a Bull on Thursday. Chicago is coming to the West Coast off of a tough loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night, and it is going to do so without at least G Kirk Hinrich, who is out with an elbow infection. C Joakim Noah is very much so up in the air for this game with a foot injury, and if he doesn’t play, it’s going to be tough to put a body up against C Kenneth Faried and the rest of the Denver bigs. In fact, the Nuggets are surprisingly the top rebounding team in the NBA, and thanks to the fact that they are hitting the glass and flying up and down the court, they are averaging over 113 points per game during this seven-game winning streak. They allowed a whopping 100 shots on Tuesday night to the Milwaukee Bucks and still found a way to win the game by eight to cover their third in a row as well. This is just a bad matchup for Chicago. The team isn’t going to be able to slow Denver down, and it isn’t going to be winning the battle on the boards, and when those two things don’t happen for Head Coach Tom Thibodeau, there is a bad result coming.
