Bulls vie for third straight win as Celtics visit

CHICAGO -- Back-to-back victories may not seem like the biggest of accomplishments, but in a season in which the Chicago Bulls are experiencing plenty of growing pains and toll-taking injuries, even small successes carry some weight.

After a weekend in which Chicago managed to snap a 10-game losing streak and hold on for a pair of closely contested wins, the heavy lifting continues on Monday when the Bulls host the Boston Celtics at the United Center.

The Celtics (23-5) boast the league's best record while the Bulls (5-20) possess the league's worst mark. Despite the disparity and all of the challenges that the Celtics present, Chicago's two-game winning streak has provided the Bulls with a renewed sense of confidence after dealing with the 10 consecutive setbacks.
