The Cleveland Cavaliers pay a visit to the Chicago Bulls at the United Center on Wednesday night. Here’s a Cavs vs Bulls Prediction.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in red-hot form as they've won 12 of their last 15 games overall and they will be looking to keep it going after outlasting the Mavericks in a thrilling 121-119 home win last night. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 31 points, seven rebounds and six assists, Max Strus drained seven 3-pointers to finish with 21 points while Jarrett Allen tallied 19 points with nine rebounds. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 53 percent from the field and 20 of 40 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they trailed by seven points late in the fourth quarter, before they closed the final 2:57 on a 15-6 run to escape with the gritty win at home.

Chicago Bulls

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in a bit of a rut as they've now lost three of their last four games after falling just short to the lowly Pistons in a 105-95 home loss last night. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 25 points and four assists on nine of 16 shooting, Nikola Vucevic added 20 points with 10 rebounds while Andre Drummond chipped in with 20 points and 11 rebounds off the bench. As a team, the Bulls shot just 39 percent from the field and a miserly two of 29 from the 3-point line as they jumped out to a quick start and took the lead into halftime, only to go ice-cold from the 3-point line and score just 40 points in the second half to allow the Pistons to run them down with time to spare. The Bulls will meet the Bucks and Kings after this one.

Cavs vs Bulls Prediction

The Cavaliers have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league for a while now and they will be full of confidence after coming back to take down the Mavericks in a thriller last night, while the Bulls are coming into this one struggling for form and fresh off a loss to the lowly Pistons. The Bulls will surely come out swinging after last night's embarrassing loss at home, but I don't think they can get past this surging Cavaliers team who have been so consistent all season.
