Bulls Vs. Grizzlies: TV Time, Schedule And More

Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls will play a national TV game on Monday afternoon when they travel south to play the Memphis Grizzlies. The Bulls bested Memphis by 40 points in their first meeting, but Rudy Gay and the rest of the Grizzlies are surely hoping for a different result in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day matinee.

The Chicago Bulls will look to continue their five-game winning streak on Monday afternoon when they play the Memphis Grizzlies in an ESPN matinee on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at 1 p.m. The hosting Grizzlies are probably hoping the nationally televised match-up goes better than the last time the two teams met as Chicago secured a 104-64 victory over Memphis to open the new year.

The Bulls have lost just two games thus far in the truncated season as All-Star point guard Derrick Rose averages an impressive 20.8 points to go along with 8.7 assists, but the reigning MVP has recently been dealing with a toe injury. Rose hasn't look completely healthy since returning two games ago, but his teammates have done just fine picking up the slack with Luol Deng's 21 points and 16 rebounds against the Boston Celtics on Sunday night being the latest impressive feat for the non-Rose Bulls.

As far as the Grizzlies are concerned, injuries to power forwards Zach Randolph and Darrell Arthur have kept them from gaining any sort of momentum following last season's playoff run. If Rudy Gay and Memphis is able to win on Monday afternoon, though, it'll be their first three-game winning streak of the season. Considering the 64 points they scored against the Bulls last time out was their lowest point total since moving to Memphis, however, the Grizzlies have their work cut out for themselves.

The game between the Bulls and Grizzlies is one of eight being played in the afternoon as the NBA honors MLK and will be the only one played on national television. That said, hopefully it's not quite as lopsided as their first meeting of the season.
