Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been in decent shape as they've split their last eight games and they will be eager to stay hot after making light work of the Pistons in a 127-105 road win last night. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 39 points and seven assists on 14 of 22 shooting, Coby White added 18 points with five assists while Alex Caruso chipped in with eight points and 10 assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 53 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line as caught fire early to jump out in front and they just kept their foot on the gas, outscoring the Pistons in every quarter to finish with the blowout win.

Washington Wizards

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in poor form as they've lost seven of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a four-game slide after getting beaten by the Timberwolves in a 130-121 road loss on Tuesday. Corey Kispert led the team with 25 points and five assists, Jordan Poole added 24 points with six assists while Deni Avdija and Anthony Gill each scored 15 points. As a team, the Wizards shot 49 percent from the field and an efficient 20 of 43 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 44 points in the first quarter to take an early 21-point lead, only to get complete outplayed the rest of the way to almost lose by double digits again.

Bulls vs Wizards prediction

The Bulls are still missing a bunch of players including Andre Drummond and Ayo Dosunmu, while the Wizards are keeping eyes on Eugene Omoruyi and Jordan Poole, who are both questionable. The Bulls come into this one as the team in better shape, but they will be playing their second game of a back to back set after last night's dominant win over the Pistons. It wouldn't be a shock if the Wizards pulled off the minor upset at home, but the Bulls have the momentum and I think they can get the win and cover at the short line.
