The Chicago Bulls have been no pushovers this year and I once again expect them to show up here and make life difficult on a Denver Nuggets team who will be looking to making a deep run in the playoffs here in 2021.
The Bulls are 2 and 3 in their last 5 games losing to the teams you would expect them to while also beating teams perceived to be worse than them. A pretty big problem for them this year is their defense, as they allow 114 points per game which is not going to get it done when you lack an electric offense on the other end of things.
In terms of the Bulls offense it will be, and has been for the entire season, carried by Zach Lavine who has been simply sensational so far this year averaging over 28 points per game. He will be called upon, most likely, to win a shootout type of game against another talented young guard in Jamal Williams.
Fans were concerned about this Nuggets team just a few weeks ago, and with good reasons they were hanging around .500, but Denver has been able to step up in recent times to rip off 7 wins in their last 8 games. Their last two wins were particularly impressive, as they both came via blow-outs and came against decent opposition in the Pacers and the Hornets.
Jamal Murray has once again been solid averaging over 20 points per game, but the biggest reason for the success the Nuggets have had here is the play of their center Nikola Jokic who has held down an MVP pace in terms of production all season long.
Also look out for Michael Porter Jr. who actually led the way for this Denver team in terms of point scoring with 29=8 in that game against the Charlotte Hornets.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
I think this will be a high tempo game that the Nuggets will have the upper hand in, as I do not see how the Bulls are supposed to stop the Joker here and that strong interior presence will open up the rest of this offense.
It is also hard to ignore the run that the Nuggets are on, as it seems like they flipped a switch a few weeks ago and now seem like they are rising to legitimate championship contention, which really did not seem like a thing before this run of wins.
Also watch out for news, as it looks like there will be some fans allowed back at the Ball Arena in the near future which could make a difference in terms of the home court advantage the Nuggets have.
