Record vs. Bulls (2011-12): 0-1.
Update: The Bulls' last three games have gone to overtime, including an incredibly low-scoring 85-82 loss Saturday to Memphis. Center Joakim Noah was not happy after being benched for the fourth quarter and overtime of that game. Luol Deng, Chicago's leading scorer, is doubtful for Monday's game because of a sore hamstring. The Bulls beat the Lakers in their only meeting last season, 88-87, in the season opener.
