Two hard-nosed teams with tough defensive outlooks met at FedExForum for a pre-New Year's Eve game. For the Chicago Bulls and the Memphis Grizzlies, winning is built on a hone-in-on defense foundation.
Similar stats aside, it was the Bulls' defense that prevailed and their offense that propelled Chicago past Memphis (91-95) on Monday night (Dec. 30).
The Grizzlies (13-17) wanted a year-end win going into 2014. Chicago (12-17) was trying to bounce back after suffering a home loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.
