Chicago Bulls

Chicago BullsThe form of the Bulls has been improving lately, they’ve won 3 of 4 games since the break and with just 1.5 games separating them from the 10th seed and a play-in tournament all hope is not lost just yet. We’ve been seeing Zach LaVine elevate his game to a whole new level. He just dropped 41 in the win over Detroit, he’s yet to shoot under 50% in a game since the all-star break.

However, Phoenix will present a much tougher match-up here, they’ve beaten the Bulls 4 times in the last 5 meetings at United Center. The Bulls are on a 6-game losing streak in head-to-head meetings, so it could be an uphill battle tonight. The first meeting of the season played in Phoenix was a tough one as the Suns scored 132 points in the win.

Phoenix Suns

Phoenix SunsWith the firepower they have on their team now, I wouldn’t be shocked if Phoenix matched that number from the first game. Kevin Durant made an instant impact in his debut with the team scoring an efficient 23 points, showing no signs of rust after missing over a month of play with a knee injury. Devin Booker exploded for 37 points, while Deandre Ayton had 16 and 16 rebounds.

Chris Paul resorted to assisting this time around, collecting 11 dimes. The big 4 of the Suns will be hard to stop here, they scored just 9 threes in the win over Charlotte, but they still came out on top by 14 points. Right now they’re on a run of 13 wins in 18 games, plus they’ve also beaten 14 of their last 18 opponents from the Central Division. Against Chicago they’ve covered the spread in 4 of the last 6 meetings.

With KD fitting in just fine, I think the Suns are the team to beat now in the NBA. Chicago hasn’t been as consistent as they would have liked. With the experience of Paul and the dynamic duo of Booker and Durant, Phoenix should have this one in the bag. Lay the points with the Suns.

Chicago Bulls vs Phoenix Suns Predictions & Odds

As crazy as it might sound, defense will determine if the Phoenix Suns win a championship this season or not. Offensively they looked like a well oiled machine in only 1 game played with Durant and I expect that to stay that way as KD is the easiest superstar to implement in an offensive system. Defensively the Suns looked good holding the Hornets to under 100 points.

Their last 5 of 7 games overall have all cashed on the under, while on the road they are 6-1 in favor of the under in their last 7 played. Chicago also does a nice job at limiting the pace of games, their last 9 of 11 games have all gone under, including 5 in a row at home. With Chicago ranking just 18th and the Suns 23rd in pace of play, and 6 of their last 10 meetings all cashing on the under I think backing that is the best way to approach tonight’s match-up.
