The NBA is back in action today as the Chicago Bulls will head to North Carolina to clash with the Charlotte Hornets.
The Bulls are heading into this game after a solid away win against Miami with a score of 105-89.
On the other side, the Hornets 100-92 win over the Grizzlies on Friday night.
Chicago Bulls Form
The Bulls played well in their last game. They were the better team and deserved the win against the Heat.
Chicago is placed on the 13th spot in the Eastern Conference with 13 games behind the Hornets for the last playoff spot.
Bobby Portis played well in their latest win against Miami as he scored 26 points in that contest.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bulls score an average of 101.4 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 29th spot in the league in scoring.
Moreover, Chicago has an average record of 42 boards per night combined with 21.6 dimes per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Bulls concede an average of 110.8 points per contest. Therefore, this record is enough for the 15th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Charlotte Hornets Form
The Hornets are heading into this game after a solid win against Memphis. They needed this win in order to maintain their playoff spot. Moreover, they are only 2 games ahead of the chasing Pistons team.
It seems that they are suffering from fatigue at the moment. Yet, there is still gas in the tank for this Hornets team.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hornets are scoring an average of 111.5 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 18th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average of 44.6 rebounds per game combined with 23.7 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, Charlotte is conceding an average of 111.4 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 18th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Hornets will play their second game in a row tonight. As we have seen, their fatigue levels are going up at the moment. Therefore, this will be a hard game for them.
On the other side, the Bulls have the momentum on their side after a solid win against the Heat. They played well in defence. This Bulls team is not as good as Charlotte, but I think that they are more rested and the momentum is on their side. Therefore, I will take Chicago in this one.
