The Boston Celtics will host a much improved Chicago Bulls club tonight. The Bulls come in at 1-0 on the year after an impressive opening night win over the Milwaukee Bucks. The young Bulls team has high expectations for their number one overall pick in the draft, Derrick Rose. After a tough 33-49 season last year, the Bulls should manage a winning record in ’08-’09. They’ll have a tough battle tonight though as the defending champs try to duplicate last year’s strong start that saw them go 8-0 out of the gate.
The Celtics expect to be looser right from the opening tip tonight. In Tuesday’s home opener against the Cavs, an emotional Celtics squad started slow, only to clamp down in the 2nd half. With the festivities of opening night and banner raising behind them the Celtics are now ready to focus on defending their title.
Great Celtics tickets are available for tonight’s game. Check it out.
