Preview

Tonight we have the Nets traveling to Chicago to take on the Bulls. These teams are middle of the road in terms of pace at this point in the season. The Nets come into this game on a roll winning 5 straight, they'll be on the second leg of a B2B and will also be playing their 3rd game in 4 days. The Bulls come into this game after dropping 2 straight games to the Sixers. They're fully healthy and come into this game on a day of rest and will look to bounce back against a Nets team that's been on a roll of late.

 

Brooklyn Nets

The Nets will run through James Harden and Kevin Durant this season and tonight will be no different. Harden has got off to a slow start but has the ability to go off any night. Durant continues to be one of the top players in the NBA and will get his every night. The likes of Bruce Brown and Patty Mills will take up the back court minutes though ball handling duties will still be Durant and Harden's all night. Joe Harris is a sharpshooter on the perimeter that can get hot at any time. The likes of Blake Griffin and Lamarcus Aldridge will make up the front court for this Nets squad and Griffin has seen an uptick in minutes the last few games and has been producing across the board. This Nets team has been excellent on the defensive end and should matchup well against this Bulls team.  

 

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls come into this game looking to bounce back from dropping 2 straight to the Sixers. This offense is dynamic as Zach Lavine, Demar DeRozan, Nikola Vucevic can all go off any given night. With all these offensive pieces this team has still been able to play solid on the defensive end. This trio should have a plus matchup against the likes of this Nets team. Lonzo ball stuff's the stat sheet all over but can be forgotten on the offensive end behind the main three guys, though he does bring solid defense. Alex Caruso has been great for this Bulls team off the bench and will continue to contribute across the board on offense and defense. This Bulls squad seems to have the slight advantage tonight as they bring more capable scorers to the table while also playing solid defense.

Prediction

I'll be on the Bulls tonight in what should be a good game. The Nets though they have Harden and Durant lack the same amount of scoring power when compared to the Bulls. Add in that this is the Nets 3rd game in 4 days and on the second leg of a B2B i'll be rolling with the Bulls.

PICK: Bulls -1.5  (-115)
