This Wednesday will see an Eastern Conference showdown as the Chicago Bulls head down south to take on the Orlando Magic. The Bulls are fighting to hold onto a playoff spot, while the Magic seem to still be trying to find an identity.
The Chicago Bulls have struggled since the All Star break, particularly in the last few games. They have lost three of their last four, including a 109-95 beatdown at the hands of the Pistons on Monday. Chicago is in 8th place in the East.
The Magic have also lost three of their last four games and two in a row. They fell 113-105 at home to the New York Knicks on Monday and are only one spot out last place in the Eastern Conference.
The Bulls have struggled mightily in the last few games without Dwyane Wade. Of the last four games, they have lost three by double digits.
The one bright spot lately was the surprising upset win over the Golden State Warriors last Thursday.
They have lost two straight since then, and Wade is doubtful for this game.
Chicago averages only 102.4 points per game, which ranks them 24th in scoring offense.
They rank 3rd in rebounding with 46.2 and 19th in assists with 21.7 per contest. The Bulls have the 7th best scoring defense in basketball, allowing only 103.2 points per game.
Jimmy Butler leads the way for Chicago with 23.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game. Dwyane Wade is 2nd on the team in scoring with 18.9 points, but he is doubtful for this one.
Robin Lopez contributes 10.1 points, and Rajon Rondo leads the team in assists with 6.5 per game.
Many people believe that the Magic are only playing for ping pong balls at this point, but if that is the case, no one told the players.
They continue to put forth effort and have been competitive, despite losing three of the last four games. They only lost by one point to the Wizards on Sunday and stayed within single digits of the Knicks the following night.
The Magic only average 100 points per game, which is one spot out of dead last in the NBA. They rank 23rd in rebounding with 42.8 and 17th in assists with 21.8 per contest.
The Magic are a decent defensive team, allowing 105.9 points per game which ranks 18th in the league.
Evan Fournier leads the way for Orlando with 16.8 points per game. Nikola Vucevic contributes 14.4 points and 10.1 rebounds, and 13 points and 4.4 rebounds per night.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Neither of these teams have been playing particularly impressive basketball as of late. The Bulls have struggled mightily without Dwyane Wade, and it is unlikely that he will play in this game.
The Magic have been competitive in their last few games, but they are just not good enough to compete with a playoff caliber team like the Bulls.
