Monday, February 15th the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers pair up to play their for their second contest this season. The first meeting occurred on December 26th with Indiana winning 125-106 to extend their current win streak over the Bulls to 10 games.
The Bulls hold the all-time record between the clubs with 97 wins in 193 meetings. Last season, the clubs played four times with Indiana sweeping the series.
Not much has gone right in Chicago this season but Zach LaVine is putting up numbers worthy or a potential All-Star appearance.
Through 25 games he’s averaging a career-best 28.1 points which ranks him seventh in the league this season. In addition, he’s also registering career-best statistically in rebounds, assists and 3-point efficiency with 5.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists and shooting 43% from deep.
With this rise in production the spotlight is also on LaVine as a potential trade deadline possibility for clubs looking to shore up their title runs.
The Bulls frontcourt is dealing with copious injuries. Otto Porter Jr. missed the match Friday with back spasms as did Wendell Carter Jr. while he nurses a sore quad. Both are listed as questionable for Monday.
Lauri Markkanen will miss between two and four weeks due to an injured shoulder. Chandler Hutchison is out indefinitely due to personal reasons.
The Pacers ended a four-game losing streak with back to back wins. With lower tier teams on the menu it’s helping the Pacers rediscover their rhythm.
They played the Pistons and Hawks on Thursday and Saturday to capture those wins and will be keen to play the Bulls to extend that win streak to three games in a row.
Dates with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets follow so this streak could easily grow to five before week’s end.
The Pacers frontcourt led the way in the most recent victory with both Domantas Sabonis (14 points, 13 rebounds) and Myles Turner (19 points, 10 rebounds) registering double-doubles.
Doug McDermott posted a game-high 26 points. Every Pacers starter hit double-figures with Malcolm Brogdon logging 18 points and Justin Holiday collecting 15.
TJ Warren remains out after undergoing foot surgery with no absolute date for a return yet. Newly acquired Caris LeVert underwent surgery to remove the mass on his kidney that was found during the mandatory physical conducted when players change teams.
LeVert and the team will take their time for his rehabilitation to ensure he’s 100 percent when he returns to the court.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
With so many of the Bulls front court out injured Turner and Sabonis should feast in the paint and on the boards. Brogdon will have his hands full guarding LaVine and Bjorkgren is likely to employ several players to help with slowing LaVine.
Coby White has also been connecting lately and will need extra attention.
