Nets vs. Bulls
The Nets and Bulls meet today at the United Center in a game which both teams could do with winning. The Nets have lost four of their past five games and need to start turning things around as the playoffs draw closer and they need to find themselves in strong form.
The Bulls are at .500 over the past 10 games, winning half and losing the other half. They're 11th in the Eastern Conference, sitting on 29 wins, but they've been better than expected this year and Zach LaVine is playing at a top level.
The Nets are averaging 118.6 points per game on 49.2% shooting. Kevin Durant is scoring more than 28 points per game on average, with Kyrie just behind on 27.4 points per game. The duo also team up for an average of 10 assists per game when combined. They've shot over 80% from the free throw line. Defensively they're giving up 114.6 points per game and allowing 36.8% shooting rom deep.
Tuesday has been a good day for the Nets in general with Brooklyn 44-20-1 ATS in their past 65 games on the second day of the week. They've also been good in Chicago of late, 4-1 ATS when they've been in the windy city.
It's not a surprise to know that the Bulls haven't been anywhere near the Nets on offense. They've only scored an average 110.9 points per game, on 47.7% shooting. Sach LaVine has been on fire, averaging 27.2 points per game and 5 assists. WNikola Vucevic isn't far behind with Coby White the third highest scorer on the team. Chicago are giving up an average of 111.8 points per game, with 35.6% shooting from deep.
The Bulls may have split their last 10 games but they've been good on Tuesday's recently, going 6-0 ATS in their past 6. Worryingly they're 3-8 ATS when playing on a day's rest. The under has gone 5-2 in the past 7 meetings between these teams in Chicago.
Nets vs. Bulls Pick
When you look at the Nets recent games they've not been playing that well. It feels almost like they're treading water before the playoffs. The Bulls meanwhile has won three on the spin and have a roster as healthy as they've been for the majority of the season. There's an outside chance that they could sneak into the play-in, so they have real motivation to win this one, especially on their home court. Will the Bulls win? I'm not totally sure but I'd expect them to cover here, so grab those 5.5 points.
