Currently, the steamrolling Los Angeles Clippers own the NBA’s premiere record through the season’s inaugural 25 days.
However, the commanding Clippers will receive a stern test Saturday evening from the hard-charging Chicago Bulls.
The Bulls have ripped four consecutive wins — the longest such streak in the rugged Eastern Conference.
Furthermore, Los Angeles has exhibited susceptibility in their previous two games, as they host the well-rested Bulls while on the second leg of back-to-back contests.
Jimmy Butler’s elevated play is an integral component in Chicago’s recent run of success.
In his past four starts (All Chicago wins) the two-time All-Star has averaged an incredible 26 ppg, 9 apg, 5.5 apg, and 2 spg.
More importantly, Chicago has stifled the offensive efforts of it previous four opponents, limiting their misfiring foes to 88 ppg.
During this stretch, the Bulls have outscored Miami, Washington, Portland, and Utah 402-355.
Resurgent Chicago held the Jazz to just 77 points in the team’s last outing.
Overall, the Bulls are a supremely confident group and seem to be catching Los Angeles at the perfect time.
Los Angeles Clippers
As stated, the Clippers, at 11-2, boast the NBA’s highest winning percentage (846).
The crux of LAC’s hegemony against the league is a potent defense that restricts opponents to an NBA-best 96.7 pp100p.
Los Angeles’ core unit of Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and DeAndre Jordan have run roughshod over rivals this year. Chris Paul’s 31.49 PER is tops in the association.
Meanwhile, Blake Griffin is averaging a near double-double (20.6 ppg and 9.3 rpg) as front-court mate DeAndre Jordan anchors the middle while posting 10.3 ppg, 12.5 rpg, and 1.8 bpg.
Despite this undeniable body of work, the Clippers have appeared lethargic in their last two games.
Los Angeles dropped a Wednesday night home encounter to Memphis 111-107, and nearly surrendered a robust lead in Friday night’s razor-thin victory over the Kings.
Coming in to Saturday’s contest against Chicago, LAC’s efficacy is trending downward.
NBA Betting Trends:
- LAC is 11-2 SU this season.
- Chicago is 8-4 SU this season.
- Chicago is 4-0 SU in its last four contests.
