Free Chicago Bulls vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Players returning from injury typically take time to develop a rhythm and get their legs back but Porzingis has looked great in his two games.
Although the shorthanded Mavs lost to the Bucks the fact they were so close speaks to how talented this Dallas team could be at full strength.
