2012 NBA Season:Indiana Pacers vs. Chicago BullsDecember 04, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers goes up against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Tip-off is set at 8:00PM ET.

The Chicago Bulls have struggled to play consistently minus their All-Star player Derrick Rose, who is still on the mend from a torn ACL. However, the Bulls know how to play as a team as they await the full recuperation of Derrick Rose.

Chicago has won three of their last four games, Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler will have to step up their games since veteran Richard Hamilton will be out because of a left foot injury he suffered in the Bulls' win over the Sixers last Saturday.

The Pacers might miss the services of Danny Granger for another two months due to his left knee injury. However, David West is filling the void left by Granger as he averages 17.8 points per game and plays comfortably with young guns George Hill and Paul George.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Chicago Bulls as a 4-point favorite to beat the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.
