The Bulls put their five game winning streak on the line when they welcome in the Boston Celtics for the first game of the TNT doubleheader on Thursday.
Chicago fell to Boston last time they met, pushing their losing streak to 3 games at the time.
After that loss, they really began to become frustrated, but use that frustration to propel themselves to what is their current 5 game winning streak.
The Celtics have gone just 6-7 since that win over the Bulls as they continue to struggle with finding consistency on both ends of the floor.
Boston fell in their most recent game, which was a home loss to the Pistons 99-94. The Celtics led by as many as 13 points and entered the 4th quarter with a 9 point lead, but eventually fell to the Pistons as they collapsed in that 4th.
Avery Bradley missed out on Wednesday’s loss to Detroit with a hip contusion and the team severely missed his presence, especially behind the arc. Boston shot just 6 for 28 from behind the arc and saw their bench players go 0 for 9. It’s that kind of inconsistency that has really hurt them lately.
Over their last 4 games, the Celtics as a team have shot a horrid 26 of 108 from behind the arc.
Bradley is traveling with the team, but isn’t expected back until Sunday against Memphis.
The Bulls have finally looked like the team that everyone thought they would be.
Chicago has opened up a 5 game winning streak and has climbed up the Eastern Conference standings. They have gone a solid 10-4 since that loss to Boston back on Dec. 9. Chicago grabbed a 117-106 win over Milwaukee on Tuesday as they had their offense clicking in every way.
Derrick Rose even sat out 3 games, but the Bulls had no problem handling business without him. Rose played against Bucks and racked up 16 points in the win.
The Bulls had all 5 starters score in double figures in the win as they all tallied at least 11 points.
Chicago brings in a 15-5 SU record at home this season.
