The Cleveland Cavaliers play host to the Chicago Bulls at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Wednesday night. Here’s a Cavs vs Bulls Prediction.

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been in decent shape as they've won three of their past four games and they will be eager to keep it going after taking down the Hawks in a 136-126 road win on Monday. DeMar DeRozan and Ayo Dosunmu led the team with 29 points each, Nikola Vucevic tallied 24 points with 11 rebounds while Coby White chipped in with 20 points and seven assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 55 percent from the field and 13 of 28 from the 3-point line as they struggled to get going and quickly fell into a 13-point deficit, but that seemed to wake them up as they exploded for 76 points in the second half to make it look easy in the end.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been on fire as they were going for a 10th straight victory before they got stopped in their tracks by the shorthanded 76ers in a 123-121 loss on Monday. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 36 points and six assists, Jarrett Allen and Darius Garland scored 21 points each while Evan Mobley chipped in with 14 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 47 percent from the field and 13 of 37 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the 76ers in a game that was close all the way until midway through the fourth quarter where the Cavaliers allowed the 76ers to use an 11-2 run to fall short in the end.

Cavs vs Bulls Prediction

The Bulls are still shorthanded with Patrick Williams out and Alex Caruso is listed as questionable, while the Cavaliers are keeping an eye on Dean Wade who is questionable for this one. The Bulls have been doing well to keep winning games despite the growing injury list and they looked good in their comeback win over the Hawks on Monday, but it's going to be tough to hang with the Cavaliers who are still the hottest team in the league despite their narrow loss to the 76ers on Monday. It's hard to go past the Cavaliers to bounce back, especially at home, but I think the Bulls hang on and keep this to single digits, in the end.Pick: Chicago +9.5
