The Chicago Bulls (6-8) are coming of a two game winning streak when they travel to Charlotte to take on the Charlotte Hornets (6-8) who have lost 3 in a row. The Bulls are trying for their first 3 game winning streak of the season with Zach Lavine hoping to continue his offensive explosion while averaging 27.4 points a game (5th in the NBA). This will be a battle of two different styles with the Bulls coming in at 117.4 ppg (4th in the east) and shooting 47.8%, while the Hornets are only averaging 106.2 ppg in their last 10 games. The Bulls haven’t played since their 125-120 victory over the Rockets and should be well rested.
Gordon Hayward has been very hot lately and is averaging 22.2 ppg on 49.3% shooting. It will be important to contain him for the Bulls to pull of a victory. Patrick Williams is day to day with a thigh contusion and the Bulls should welcome back Chandler Hutchison and Tomas Satoransky. Coach Donovan’s pace has opened opportunities for many players with multiple players scoring double figures game to game.
