Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls are on a triple-tie for the 8th place in the NBA Eastern Conference standings along with the Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Hornets with their records at 15-17. They came into their last game against the Phoenix Suns with a three-game winning streak but it was snapped by a 9-point loss, 97-106. Zach LaVine did his best to carry the team with 24 points, four assists and four three-pointers and he got help from Coby White who provided 19 points, five rebounds and four assists. The bench was able to pick up the slack from the starters’ bad games but it was not enough to get over the hump against the Suns.
