Heat-Bulls Preview

(AP) -- With a renewed emphasis on defense and rebounding, the Chicago Bulls are looking to continue their recent upswing at home before embarking on a difficult trip.

As they welcome former teammate Luol Deng back to United Center for the first time, the Central Division-leading Bulls seek their third straight win Sunday against a Miami Heat team that is struggling offensively.

Following a stretch of six losses in eight games over 13 days, Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau canceled practice Tuesday in favor of a team meeting to discuss some of the club's issues during its worst slump of the season.
