Bulls look to snap losing streak tonight in indiana

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers are coming off a game where they
played a New York Knicks team that was without its two top scorers
-- Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway -- due to injury.
The Pacers stay focused and were dominant in a 115-97 rout. Now the
Pacers (13-11) host the Chicago Bulls, who have the worst record in
the NBA. The Bulls (3-19) lost their ninth in a row Monday night, a
113-91 decision to visiting Cleveland.
"It doesn't matter who we're playing, we have to have the same
mindset," Pacers guard Victor Oladipo said. "We have to go out
there and attack on both ends of the floor. We have to play at a
high level and the wins will come."
Indiana forward Thaddeus Young agreed maintaining focus will be key.
"It's always about execution and just running everything through,
continuing to play our basketball and just locking in on the
defense end," Young said.
Bulls point guard Kris Dunn said the team is focused on remaining
positive despite the struggles.
"Right now, we are not trying to look at the losses, we are trying
to go out and get a win," Dunn told Bulls.com. "Once we get a win,
I think we can get that monkey off our back. It's all in the
person, be positive, be able to withstand the tough times we are
going through, the toughest players get through adversity and
that's what we have to do. Keep improving every day in practice,
try to get that onto the court."
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said his team had a chance to win six
games during the first eight games of the losing streak.
"Six of (the losses) were seven points or under, and then you had
two blowouts against Golden State and against Utah, where you saw
similar things that happened in this game (against Cleveland),"
Hoiberg said. "The big thing we talk about is going out, competing,
playing the right way and giving ourselves a chance to win. We've
done that lately for the most part. (Monday night), we took a step
backwards.
Guard Justin Holiday said the Bulls understand they have lost a lot
of games.
"We all don't like that," Holiday said. "Again, we're all going
through this very positive. The next game we're trying to get that
one to start it for us. We're going to continue until we do and
then we are going to try to get another."
Pacers guard Cory Joseph, who scored 12 points against the Knicks,
is listed as questionable with a sore left shoulder. Joseph was one
of seven players in doubles figures for the Pacers against New York.
"We've been doing a good job keeping it balanced for the most part
throughout the season," Pacers point guard Darren Collison said.
"(Monday) was more about our defense than our offense."
In the season's first meeting on Nov. 10, Oladipo scored 25 points
to help the Pacers beat the Bulls 105-87 in Chicago.
Tonight's game can be heard on Good Time Oldies 1060 with the Pre-Game Show at 5:30.
