The Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers collide at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Monday night.

The Chicago Bulls will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting routed by the Pistons in a disappointing 118-102 road loss on Saturday. Zach LaVine led the way with a monster game of 51 points on 19 of 33 shooting, DeMar DeRozan added 20 points with four assists while Nikola Vucevic chipped in with 12 points, but no other player scored more than five points. As a team, the Bulls shot just 41 percent from the field and 11 of 28 from the 3-point line as they made a run in the third quarter to cut a 13-point lead to single digits, only to get blown out in the fourth quarter where they leaked 34 points.

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers will be gunning for a third straight victory after blowing past the Cavaliers in a 125-113 road win on Saturday. Aaron Nesmith led all scorers with 26 points and nine rebounds off the bench, Tyrese Haliburton tallied 21 points with eight rebounds and 13 assists while Myles Turner chipped in with 20 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Pacers shot 49 percent from the field and 15 of 38 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with a dominant 29-12 second quarter to take the lead into halftime, before they poured in 34 points in the fourth quarter to pull away and make it a big win.

The Bulls are keeping an eye on Zach LaVine although he is listed as probable, while the Pacers don't have a single player listed on the injury report. LaVine looks to be in midseason form as he is coming into this one fresh off a 51-point performance, but it still wasn't enough to get past the Pistons on Saturday, which does not inspire confidence heading into Indiana. The Pacers have hit the ground running this season, they're completely healthy and I think they make light work of the Bulls at home in this spot.
