Rockets vs. Bulls: Game preview, TV schedule and more

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

The Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls meet on Wednesday night with both teams looking to break losing streaks.

With both teams in the midst of a losing streak, something will have to give when the Houston Rockets host the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.

After starting the season hot, the Rockets have dropped the last three games and seven of their last nine. However, the most concerning issue for Houston right now is the health of franchise cornerstone James Harden, who is dealing with the flu. In its loss to the Utah Jazz on Monday night, Harden played only 17 minutes, scoring six points.

The Bulls, meanwhile, despite ranking ninth in the NBA with 94.2 points allowed per game, have suffered consecutive defeats uncharacteristically with opponents topping the 100-point mark. With Derrick Rose still out with a torn ACL, Luol Deng is leading the way for the Bulls offensively with 18.1 points per game. Joakim Noah has also raised his scoring, averaging a career-high 14.8 points along with 10.0 rebounds.

Nate Robinson has been a pleasant surprise for Chicago, providing a much-needed spark off the bench. Despite not starting, Robinson is scoring 12.0 points per game on nearly 47 percent shooting from the field.

The contest between the Rockets and Bulls will tip-off at the Toyota Center at 7 p.m. CT and can be viewed locally on Comcast SportsNet Houston.
