Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons, 7 tonight at the United Center



Radio: WSCR 670-AM

Outlook: Here's another chance at some mock playoff practice for the Bulls, since they'll play consecutive games against the Pistons, just as they did last weekend against Atlanta. ... Detroit (31-31) is in good shape to make the playoffs, currently tied for sixth place in the East with Brooklyn. It would be the Pistons' second postseason berth in the last 10 years. ... PF Blake Griffin leads the team at 25.2 ppg. C Andre Drummond leads the league in rebounds with 15.1 and is averaging 17.6 points. PG Reggie Jackson (15.3 points, 4.3 assists) hasn't developed into a star like the Pistons envisioned. ... The Bulls have lost five straight in the series, including two this season, but teams haven't met since Nov. 30.

Next: Detroit Pistons, 11 a.m. Sunday at Little Caesars Arena
