This used to be a marquee matchup but this season there is not even one star between the two teams combined. Thanksgiving weak is always a little bit of a different animal in terms of scheduling but I am not sure how this game wound up as the only one on teh NBA schedule Tuesday evening.
I suppose Lonzo Ball drives some interest but mostly that is of the negative variety right now.
The Chicago Bulls are not going to win a lot of games this season. Their best player is probably a rookie and and as the Lakers are learning, it is probably not a good idea to expect to much from one of those.
In the case of the Bulls they are getting fantastic production from Lauri Markkanen. He is leading the team in scoring and rebounding with 15 and 8 and with Dirk on his last legs looks like a good player to pass the torch to.
He has length but leaves the banging to Robin Lopez who is serviceable as an energy pivot. He will also be taking on his brother in this one which could make it interesting.
The Bulls have to hope that their backcourt emerges as the season progresses. There are a number of guys discarded by other teams like Kris Dunn, Justin Holiday and Jerian Grant.
If one of those could start living up to the hype of their NBA entry then this team could start competing more.
Los Angeles Lakers
Lonzo Ball just had a triple double and is leading the team in assists and rebounding but is still taking a lot of heat. His shooting has bee atrocious and if he can’t figure it out it looks like his career will follow a Rajon Rondo kind of arc. If you have a better comp I am all ears.
While Ball gets grilled Kyle Kuzma can do no wrong. He is also a rookie and leads the team in scoring. When you watch him play it looks like he has been in the league for a decade. He just gets it in a way that a lot of players struggle with.
There is some talent on the Lakers but I don’t understand how they dole out playing time. Brook Lopez barely plays yet they are finding regular minutes for Corey Brewer. I wonder if both should be dealt. If you want the kids to develop just throw them out there without a lifeline.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
I am not high on Los Angeles. The problem I see if the guys they want to be good are not living up to expectations while other players are really showing something but not featured.
If they made Jordan Clarkson and Kyle Kuzma their starting backcourt they might average 20ppg each. Instead those guys are competing for time with Kantavious Caldwell-Pope and Brandon Ingram among others.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Lakers -6
Even though I am very critical of L.A. this is a game they should win with ease. Those 6 points are a nice value.
