Fresh off one of their biggest wins of the season on Wednesday in Boston, the Grizzlies head to Chicago to try and knock off the surging Bulls, winners of their last 13 at home. Only one team has knocked off both the Celtics and Bulls at home this season (surprisingly enough, the L.A. Clippers) and the Bulls have dropped just four games at the United Center all year, so it will be no easy task for Memphis tonight.
The Memphis Grizzlies head to Boston tonight for the first game of a two-game trip against the Eastern Conference’s best two teams—the Celtics tonight and the Chicago Bulls on Friday. Memphis has fared well against the top teams in the West, posting a 9-6 mark against the top four in their own conference, but lost to both the Celtics and Bulls at home earlier this season.
MEMPHIS – The Memphis Grizzlies’ Marc Gasol and Xavier Henry are two of 20 NBA players contributing to an effort by Direct Relief International, one of the world’s leading medical organizations, to help the people of Japan recover from the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011.
Gasol will be donating $1,000 for every point scored tonight when the Grizzlies play the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. Gasol is one of several NBA stars, including Derrick Rose, LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol, Al Horford, JaVale McGee and Russell Westbrook, to commit that sum for each point scored for select games from March 25-27.
