The Bulls Look to Get Back in the Win Column Against the Blazers.
Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and the Portland Trailblazers (9-8) travel to Chicago and look to get revenge against the Chicago Bulls (7-10). The Bulls defeated the Blazers back on January 5th in Portland with a 111-108 victory due to an electric performance by Zach Lavine. Zach Lavine nailed a clutch deep 3 pointer with seconds left on the clock to give the Bulls a comfortable 4 point lead and seal the victory. Coby White led the Bulls with 21 points that game and McCollum had 26 points. Lavine is 8th in the league in scoring with 27.0 ppg and Lillard is 3rd with 28.8 ppg.
I’m really looking for White to be assertive after a horrid stretch and have a good defensive game against Lillard. The Blazers will be depleted without McCollum & Jones. Unfortunately, Wendell Carter Jr. will be out for the next 4 weeks and his absence in the middle will hurt in the long run, but I expect the Bulls to rally with a chunk of the Blazers team missing. I expect Billy Donovan to have a good game plan after a weeks rest and really fire up the team, especially after two horrid games.
The game will be at 8 CST tonight!
