The Bulls ride into this Friday night matchup sporting a 10-31 record. Naturally this places Chicago near the bottom of the conference, pretty much out of range of any postseason play. Entering tonight’s matchup riding a 5 game losing streak, it’s easy to see why Chicago is facing such lopsided odds this evening. Nevertheless, the team still has to take to the court to face one of the best teams in the league. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Chicago has no chance of keeping up with Golden State. Right now the Bulls are scoring 100.7 points per game and are giving up 110.2 to their opponents. Although the Warriors defense is slightly worse than Chicago’s, seeing as how it gives up 111.7 per game, their offense should have no problems leading their club to a victory. This is because Golden State is putting up a total of 116.7 per game.
Players to Watch: Zach LaVine (23.5 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 4.3 apg), Lauri Markkanen (17.0 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 1.1 apg), and Jabari Parker (14.9 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 2.2 apg).
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors step into this evening’s intra-conference matchup flashing a 27-14 record. With a 4-1 record in their last 5 matchups, it’s safe to say that the Warriors are flying high at the moment. Currently ranked 2nd overall in the Western Conference, Golden State has no worries about this season or this evening’s matchup. In fact, Golden State is 7-3 in their last 10 meetings against Chicago. And since they’ll be playing at home tonight, we can fully expect the Warriors to deliver a lopsided beating.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (28.9 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.5 apg), Kevin Durant (28.4 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 6.1 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.6 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.0 apg).
