Bulls tipoff

New Orleans Hornets at New Orleans Arena, 7 p.m.

TV: Comcast SportsNet-plus

Radio: ESPN AM-1000

Update: The future Pelicans (19-34) got off to a rough start but turned things around when SG Eric Gordon finally returned from a knee injury. They've gone 12-9 since Jan. 5. Gordon (16.4 ppg) missed the last two games before the break with a hand injury but is expected to play against the Bulls. Rookie No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis is averaging 12.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.9 blocks. New Orleans' top scorer is long-range shooter Ryan Anderson at 17.1 ppg, while PG Greivis Vasquez is at 13.9. The Hornets beat the Bulls at the UC 89-82 on Nov. 3 without Gordon or Davis. The Bulls have won four straight in New Orleans.

Next: Miami Heat at the United Center, 7 p.m. Thursday
