Monday, April 12th, finds the Chicago Bulls on the road to play the Memphis Grizzlies playing for the first time this season. The second meeting will occur on April 16th in Chicago.
Entering the match the Bulls are coming off a 117-121 loss to the Timberwolves while the Grizzlies also played and lost 125-132 on Sunday to the Pacers.
The Bulls hold the all-time advantage with a record of 29 wins in the 49 matches played. Last season, the squads played twice with Chicago winning both matches.
Although the Bulls made moves at the deadline to shore up their depth they haven’t been able to make any leeway still residing in 10th. Chicago needs to be careful because that perch is precarious given the Raptors are the team directly behind them.
Toronto also lost Sunday but the Bulls can’t afford to take any games for granted as the Raptors should be fully healthy this coming week (after more than a month of copious injuries) and added the front-court depth they’ve needed via Khem Birch who had a palpable effect in his first game.
Of the Bulls remaining 20 games, 15 are against seeded teams and they’ll play the Raptors again. This week they’ll play four games with two against these Grizzlies as well as the Magic and Cavaliers.
In the loss to the Wolves, Zach LaVine followed up his 50-point effort against the Hawks with 30 points. Nikola Vucevic scored 18 while Troy Brown Jr. (15), Daniel Theis (13), Coby White (11), and Thomas Satoransky (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Coach Billy Donovan wasn’t happy about the defensive effort stated the club has a lot of work to do.
While the Bulls struggle to stay in the running for a play-in tournament spot, the Grizzlies are clinging to the eighth seed and took a loss on Sunday by the team seeded directly in front of the Bulls.
Memphis has a horrid schedule stretch and is coming off a quality run which resulted in five wins in six matches including impressive victories versus the 76ers, Hawks, and Heat.
But, they ended the road trip with a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Knicks and looked fatigued in the loss to the Pacers. They’ll host the Bulls and Mavericks prior to heading out on a season-long seven-game trip.
In the loss to the Pacers, Jonas Valanciunas registered a massive double-double of 34 points with 22 rebounds (10 offensive), two assists, and two blocks. Ja Morant scored 23 points while Kyle Anderson (15), Dillon Brooks (13), and Tyus Jones (12) were the other double-figure scorers.
Jaren Jackson (knee) remains out but is expected to make a return at some stage in the second half.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies ATS
Donovan has reason to be concerned about the Bulls defense particularly their rim protection since Chicago ranks 26th for opponents’ points scored in the paint. With the Grizzlies the best in that category, it should be the difference in the match.
