Welcome to United Center

CHICAGO — The Celtics will try to get a win against the Bulls tonight without Derrick Rose in the lineup. The Celtics are trying to go above .500 for the first time this season following Saturday’s 96-92 win at Milwaukee. Coach Doc Rivers said he will stick with the same lineup, meaning Jason Terry and Brandon Bass remain starters. Kirk Hinrich will not play tonight because of a sore right hip.
