The Bulls were able to rebound from an ugly 80-96 loss at Brooklyn on Monday with a 105-94 road win over the Pistons. Chicago is 10-2 over their last 12 games and what’s really impressive is that 8 of those contests came on the road. It’s also worth noting that the Bulls are 11-3 at home since the start of the new year. The fact that Chicago is currently tied for 3rd in the Eastern Conference with their best player on the sidelines, really says a lot about this team and how hard they play.
The Bulls are one of the few teams you have to worry about showing up to play on a consistent basis and that is certainly not an issue tonight. In fact, with this game being aired on ESPN, I would expect Chicago to come out with a lot of intensity. You could argue that Chicago will be looking ahead, but the fact that they have to host Miami, San Antonio, Houston and Oklahoma City over their next five games, makes it that much more important to take care of business tonight.
A key factor favoring Chicago is that the Grizzlies could be without starting power forward Zach Randolph, who missed their last game with the flu. While I think there’s a good chance Randolph will play, his energy level figures to be lacking and will likely play fewer minutes than normal.
The Bulls are 13-4 ATS when they enter a game having won 3 of their last 4 this season, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-0 in their last 4 versus the Western Conference and 37-16 ATS in their last 53 games played on Friday. BET CHICAGO +1!
