The NBA is back in action in the final days of the year as the Chicago Bulls will clash with the Toronto Raptors
The Bulls are heading into this game after a 101-92 road win over the Wizards on Friday night in their last game.
On the other side, the Raptors suffered a surprising defeat at the Magic.
Chicago Bulls Form
The Bulls are heading into this game after some solid performances in their recent games. Moreover, they have now 3 wins in their last 4 games. Also, they showed some great play in the last game against the Wizards.
Zach LaVine led the team with 24 points in the win.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bulls are placed on the 30th spot in the league. Furthermore, their average scoring stands at 100.7 points per game. Also, their rebounds record stands at 41.7 boards per game combined with 21.7 assists per night. The team is solid in dividing the scoring. Yet, Zach LaVine is their main man as he leads the team with 23.9 points per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Bulls concede an average of 109.7 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 14th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Toronto Raptors Form
The Raptors are heading into this game after a devastating defeat in Orlando. They were the favourites to win this game but the Magic took advantage of their home ground a got the points.
Kawhi Leonard managed to score a solid 21 points in the defeat.
Nevertheless, the Raptors are still at the top spot in the Eastern Conference. They have been playing well this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Raptors are the 7th team in the league. Moreover, their scoring average stands at 113.4 points per game. Also, they have an average of 45.2 boards per game combined with 24.1 assists per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Raptors are placed on the 10th spot in the league as they concede an average of 107.7 points per game.
Kahwi Leonard is the main man in the team as he has an average of 26.7 points per game.
The Raptors were simply demolished in Orlando on Friday. Also, it is fair to say that the game against the Magic was probably their worst performance this season.
On the other side, the Bulls have been playing well but they are still far away behind the Raptors.
I expect that Toronto will aim to bounce back after the shocking defeat on Friday. Go for the Raptors in this one.
