The Main Event: Rose vs. Mayo Tonight

comment
The Grizzlies look for their first three-game winning streak since April of 2007 tonight when they host the Chicago Bulls at FedEx Forum. But the real story is the return of former University of Memphis star Derrick Rose in his first visit to Memphis as a pro, and his match-up with Grizzlies rookie O.J. Mayo.

Rose and Mayo are locked in a tight battle for the NBA's Rookie of the Year award. Tonight will be the last time this season they'll face each other. Tip-off is at 7 p.m. Chris Herrington has a preview of the match-up at Beyond the Arc, and will provide live coverage from the Forum during and after the game.
