Coming off of two blowout losses, the last place the Bulls probably would want to visit is the Rose Garden in Portland. That was the site of their worst defeat last season, a 116-74 loss to the Trail Blazers.
I asked Derrick Rose after Monday morning's shootaround if he recalled that game last November.
"I remember. Trust me, I remember," he said. "They're a tough team playing up in here and their fans are crazy. It's gonna be fun playing them up in here."
Hopefully, it'll be more fun than last year's visit.
