(SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bulls have been playing sensational basketball since early December and theyll try to continue that Wednesday night when they welcome the Utah Jazz for their annual trip to the United Center. The Bulls have won three straight, but that doesnt tell the full story. Since Dec. 10, Chicago is 13-2 and vaulted into second place in the Eastern Conference, 1 1/2 games behind the Atlanta Hawks. All three of the Bulls victories during this streak came at home. Wednesdays tilt will end a homestand, then, its a quick jaunt to Washington on Friday and back home for three straight. On Monday, the Bulls dispatched the Houston Rockets, 114-105. Chicago has scored over 100 points every game during this run, but its also allowed over the century mark in all three. Pau Gasol had 27 points and 14 rebounds as the Bulls used a strong fourth quarter to beat the Rockets. Jimmy Butler added 22 points and three steals for the Bulls, who outscored Houston by a 31-16 margin in the final period. Derrick Rose contributed 19 points and nine assists, Nikola Mirotic tallied 17 points and eight boards and Kirk Hinrich scored 10 points. I think we were solid, just good defensive positioning on the floor, Gasol said. The Jazz have alternated wins and losses over their last six and begin a tough, three-game road trip Wednesday. Utah will also visit the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets on this trek. The Jazz left Salt Lake City with a bad taste in their mouth after a 105-101 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday. Derrick Favors posted 27 points and 11 rebounds, while Gordon Hayward tallied 24 points and seven boards for Utah, which has dropped two of its last three games. Rookie Dante Exum, who started for the sick Trey Burke, had 13 points in a shade under 30 minutes. He didnt register a single turnover, but also didnt have an assist. Trevor Booker (12) and Rudy Gobert (11) rounded out the double-digit scorers. Utah erased a 19-point first half deficit and trailed 101-100 after Favors capped a 13-4 Utah run with a pair of free throws with 9.5 seconds remaining. C.J. Miles sunk a pair of foul shots at the other end and Hayward split two bonus shots after he was fouled along the right baseline with 5.7 ticks on the clock. Solomon Hill hit two free throws to seal the outcome with 4.8 seconds left. The Jazz went 4-for-23 from long range. For the most part I think we played extremely hard, we just seemed to miss a lot of shots, Hayward said. Burke is expected back on Wednesday, but starting center Enes Kanter is going to be out a little while with an ankle injury. The Bulls beat the Jazz in Utah on Nov. 24 and have taken seven of the last eight meetings. Chicago has won four straight as the host in this series. Cameron Brate Jersey .

Off-Season Game Plan looks at what the Blue Jackets may do to build upon last seasons success to return to the playoffs again next year.Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp refused to use tired legs as an excuse after his side drew 0-0 at Southampton on Saturday. The Reds largely dominated at a rain-soaked St Marys but failed to take their chances, with Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne both missing good opportunities in the second half.Firmino and Clyne were among several Liverpool players who were away on international duty in the week and even though some only returned a couple of days before the trip to the south coast, Klopp did not use that as an excuse for the stalemate. We decided to buy players from Brazil, or with the longest distance, so thats the situation, we cannot change it, he told Sky Sports. There is nothing to think about. We have to use the seconds and minutes from when the plane lands and the next game starts, its a challenge but it was possible. Charlie Nicholas gives his thoughts on the draw We had no session to prepare because guys came back too late, so we used the first half to prepare for the second half.We did well. We had three really big chances and it should be enough, but its not a probleem.ddddddddddddy experience tells me that usually a game like this you lose when you are not ready to fight, and we were ready to fight, even for the draw. We deserved a point as minimum so Im completely fine. Watch highlights of the match The draw means Liverpool have been joined at the top of the Premier League by Manchester City, and could be leapfrogged by Chelsea if they beat Middlesbrough on Nissan Super Sunday.Klopp admitted the Reds could have won with the chances they had, but was pleased with the display, particularly after half-time.It was an intense game, the first half was not bad, but not bad is not good enough, he said. Second half was very good. We could have won with the chances, but we played against a very organised side.There are two things to think about, the result and the performance. The performance was good after difficult preparation.
