Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been in rough shape as they've lost seven of their last 10 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting routed by the Knicks in a 128-117 loss on Tuesday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 34 points and six assists on 12 of 22 shooting, Nikola Vucevic added 26 points on 12 of 16 shooting while Coby White chipped in with 24 points and six assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 53 percent from the field and 10 of 28 from the 3-point line but they struggled to contain the Knicks from the start and were always fighting an uphill battle after allowing 36 points in the first quarter. Javonte Green scored just nine points on three of eight shooting while Jevon Carter scored just three points on one of five shooting off the bench.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in terrible form as they've lost 13 of their last 14 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a sixth straight defeat after getting routed by the 76ers in a 120-102 road loss on Tuesday. Jaden Ivey drained six 3-pointers to finish with 25 points, Evan Fournier added 21 points off the bench while Jalen Duren chipped in with 15 points, 11 rebounds and two assists. As a team, the Pistons shot just 40 percent from the field and 14 of 30 from the 3-point line as they looked outmatched from the start, allowing the 76ers to pour in 64 points in the first half before things got even worse in the second half.

Bulls vs Pistons prediction

The Bulls are still shorthanded with Andre Drummond out and Ayo Dosunmu listed as questionable, while the Pistons are still missing Simone Fontecchio and they have Cade Cunningham listed as questionable. The Pistons are capable of hanging around if Cunningham can suit up and have a big game, but the Bulls are the better team and they shouldn't have too much trouble getting a much-needed road win in this one.
