Two-Point Diversion: Bulls Lose, Blackhawks Face Blues

Two-Point Diversion is Tailgate's daily look at news and miscellanea from the bounty of Chicago related sports...

That's the Bulls Team We're Used To
After going 5-2 on recent road trip and knocking off five straight +.500 teams in doing so, the Bulls came back to earth last night in their return to the United Center. Chicago fell 90-82 against the Los Angeles Clippers, Derrick Rose scored 16 points on a painfully bad 7-20 from the field. In other Bulls/D.Rose news, the point guard will be facing off with Steve Nash (Phoenix), Deron Williams (Utah) and rookie Brandon Jennings (Milwaukee) in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge over All-Star Weekend. This is a very challenging field as Rose, Nash and Williams have all won the contest, with Nash winning in 2005, Williams winning (and setting the all time record in 25.5 seconds) in 2008. Jennings hasn't competed in anything like this yet, but he did drop 55 points back in November which is more points in a game than those other guys...

Blackhawks Return Home to United Center
A night after the Bulls made their (not-so) triumphant return to the UC from the annual Ice Show-induced road trip, the 'Hawks make their return tonight against the ST. Louis Blues. Chicago went 5-3 on their road trip.
