Friday, February 4th finds the Chicago Bulls playing the Indiana Pacers for the fourth and final time this season. Indiana won the initial November 22nd match (109-77) and the Bulls took the next two contests on December 26th (113-105) and 31st (108-106).
The Bulls are playing a back-to-back set having gone to overtime in the 120-127 loss to the Raptors on the front side while the Pacers last played Wednesday losing a 118-119 heartbreaker to the Magic.
Last season, the teams played three times with Chicago taking two of the three contests. The Bulls hold the all-time record having bested the Pacers in 101 of their 198 matches
The Bulls had been fortunate winning some close matches and excelling in clutch time but weren’t able to go to the well and pull out another victory on Thursday.
As noted previously, without Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso it’s resulted in the Bulls relying far heavier on their offense to win and that is a dangerous habit to fall into.
Billy Donovan has tapped Javonte Green and rookie Ayo Dosunmu to pick up the slack but against a lengthy Raptors squad ultimately they didn’t have defensive weapons to stop Toronto.
The Big 3 delivered offensively as Nikola Vucevic registered a double-double of 30 points and 18 rebounds, DeMar DeRozan offered 28 points, six rebounds, seven assists, and two steals while Zach LaVine produced 15 points, five rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and a block.
Derrick Jones Jr. (knee), Lonzo Ball (knee), and Alex Caruso (wrist) are out between six and eight weeks each. Patrick Williams (thumb) is out for the season.
The last 20 games for the Pacers are indicative of their season with only five wins in that segment. The victories included impressive showings against elite teams like the Jazz and Warriors but equally unimpressive losses to lower-tier teams.
The worst of which came versus the Magic on Wednesday. Despite holding a double-digit lead the Pacers coughed up the lead and weren’t able to collect the victory.
In the loss, six Pacers scored in double-figures with three collecting 20 or more points. Caris LeVert was the top producer offering 26 points.
The Pacers rookie who has garnered the most attention on the squad is Chris Duarte (11 points) but it was Terry Taylor who stepped up Wednesday with a double-double of 24 points and 16 rebounds.
Torrey Craig offered 22 points while Lance Stephenson (14), and Justin Holiday (13) were the other double-figure contributors..
Oshae Brissett (ankle), Domantas Sabonis (quarantine), and Goga Bitadze (foot) are questionable while Isaiah Jackson (ankle) is out versus the Bulls on Friday. Myles Turner (foot), Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles), T.J. McConnell (wrist), and TJ Warren (foot) are all out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Chicago is 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.
- Indiana is 5-15 SU in their last 20 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 5 of Chicago’s last 6 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 6 of Indiana’s last 6 games.
Free Chicago Bulls vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction
In recent years Indiana having the rest advantage would guarantee this match going in their favor but they’ve not been able to showcase any semblance of consistency this season regardless of the opponent or circumstance.
Chicago is 6-3 in second games of back-to-backs and the big blow-out loss to Indy occurred in one of those losses. But as they say lightning seldom strikes the same spot twice.
