* The Bulls have lost their last two games by at least 17 points. The second and third quarters have been the main problems, as Chicago has been outscored by a combined 49 points (128 to 79) in those quarters. They have a -1 scoring differential in the first quarter and a +10 scoring differential in the fourth quarter of those contests.
* Nate Robinson had a season-high 27 points off the bench in the Bulls’ Christmas Day loss to the Rockets. It was the 14th time that Robinson has had double-digit points coming off the bench this season.
* Joakim Noah has had at least seven rebounds in 25 straight games. Entering this weekend, that was tied with David Lee for the longest active streak in the NBA.
