Celtics Vs. Bulls: Preview, Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Boston Celtics take on the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. Derrick Rose is a game-time decision for the Bulls.

The Boston Celtics look to bounce back on Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls as their month of playoff tests continues. (Game Time: 9:30 p.m., TV Schedule: TNT)

The Celtics started a stretch of 11 games in 15 days with a loss against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. Paul Pierce had a chance to give Boston a victory on the final possession, but his step-back jumper over the outstretched arms of Tim Duncan bounded off the rim as the Spurs hung on for their 87-86 triumph.

The Celtics meet eight playoff teams during the 11-game April stretch, and the three contests that aren't against playoff teams are back-to-back-to-back, all on the road against the Toronto Raptors, New Jersey Nets and Charlotte Bobcats.

The Bulls have lost two in a row for the first time this season as Derrick Rose sat out with a strained groin, but Rose could return against the Celtics.
