(AP) — The Chicago Bulls had their season-best six-game winning steak end thanks in part to a poor defensive effort during their last game.

A visit from the offensively-challenged Detroit Pistons could help them get back on track.

Looking to stay unbeaten at home, the Bulls try for a 13th consecutive victory over a Pistons team hoping to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat Monday night.

Chicago (7-2), which ranks among the stingiest teams in the NBA with an average of just 88.7 points surrendered, gave up its highest scoring output of the season during Saturday’s 109-94 loss at Atlanta. The Bulls allowed the Hawks to score 27 fast break points and shoot 56.6 percent from the field – the highest mark by an opponent in almost a year.
