The Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors meet Monday in NBA action at the Chase Center.
The Chicago Bulls need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Chicago Bulls are averaging 112.8 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 113.8 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Zach LaVine is averaging 27.9 points and 4.8 assists while Nikola Vucevic is averaging 24.5 points and 11.7 rebounds. Lauri Markkanen is the third double-digit scorer and Coby White is dishing 4.6 assists. The Chicago Bulls are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 80.4 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Bulls are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game.
The Golden State Warriors need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 112.6 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.8 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29 points and 6.2 assists while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 18.1 points and 4.8 rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and James Wiseman is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.7 rebounds per game.
The Bulls are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Warriors are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Bulls last 9 overall. The under is 5-2 in Warriors last 7 overall. The Bulls are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Golden State Warriors have their issues obviously and aren't an easy team to back when Curry isn't on the court. However, the Bulls aren't nearly as attractive in the favorite role as they are as underdogs, and they're losing their last five games by an average of eight points while allowing 48.2 percent shooting from the field. While the Bulls are 14-5 against the spread on the road, I don't like how they've played lately. It's Warriors and the points or pass for me.
