No Rose again. [Thanks to SnellYouLater for today's game preview -yfbb] Tonight, the Chicago Bulls travel down to Memphis to face their Western Conference doppelganger in the Memphis Grizzlies. Both teams play a similar style of basketball, emphasizing defense first, making for what should be a good matchup and close game with or without Derrick Rose. The Bulls' star point guard is not traveling with the team down to Memphis because he has a stomach virus, although team officials have not ruled him out from playing in the game saying that he could show up on his own later and play. ...
The Trail Blazers center takes a moment from rehab to dish on The Simpsons. Portland Trail Blazer Robin Lopez will have time on his hands as he recovers from the injury he sustained during the recent Spurs game. RollingStone.com interviewed Lopez on his favorite The Simpsons shows knowing his predilection for the off beat adult animated sitcom. "When I was younger," Lopez says, "the first one that appealed to me was 'Lemon of Troy.'

Sources say forward Mike Miller will start tonight for the Cleveland Cavaliers when they host the Brooklyn Nets.
Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond thought Zaza Pachulia would be a great fit when the veteran signed a three-year, $15 million contract as a free agent in the summer of 2013.
New starter Mike Miller went 7-of-8 from 3-point range as the Cavs defeated the Nets, 95-91, Friday night at The Q.
John Wall and Nene combine for 40 points to beat the Miami Heat after their red-hot start to the first half. Look, I'm not really one to talk about clutch performances, but the Washington Wizards came up big in the fourth quarter against the Miami Heat. They led the Heat 29-25 after the first quarter, but the Heat caught fire in the second quarter and only missed three shots. They scored 30 points on 12-15 shooting in the quarter and assisted on six of their makes. The Wizards' normally stout defense was nowhere to be found in the first half and the Heat shot 64% from the field as they...
Butler did it again, while Mirotic scored a career-high 27 points in an impressive road win. The Bulls were without Derrick Rose (puking his brains out) and Taj Gibson (another bum anke) once again on Friday night, and considering it was the second night of a back-to-back against the 21-4 Grizzlies, that should have spelled doom. Instead, it was the Grizzlies who looked like they were the tired ones for much of the night (they have played a ton of overtimes in the last week), and the Bulls came away with their second consecutive 103-97 victory. I'd say this was shocking, but we shouldn't...
