I have mentioned this before but I think the both Deron Williams and Derrick Rose along with Chris Paul will be our Olympic point guards for both 2012 and 2016. I enjoy watching Derrick Rose. I like the way he plays and the passion that he plays with. I like his game and hope that he succeeds in the NBA...just not tonight.
We all know that Deron Williams has had some trouble with smaller quicker guards and we should see some of those problems tonight, however with out Salmons and Noah it will be tough for the Bulls to beat us there are also some questions as to whether or not Luol Deng will play (swollen knee) and Kirk Heinrich will get the nod ( sprained right ankle). Deng played on Saturday but only shot 2-8 . So we shall see.
The Bulls are getting some help from rookie Taj Gibson who is looking anything like a rookie. However I don't think he will be any match for Boozer on both ends of the floor.
Besides the obvious matchup of the night with Rose and Williams, I think where the game will be won is in the matchup at the Center position with Brad Miller and Mehmet Okur. Miller is coming of games with 14 and 17 while Memo is coming of his first back-to-back 20 point games this season. If Memo gets 20 we will dominate this game.
Jazz win this game by ten.
