Tuesday, January 5th finds the Chicago Bulls traveling to play a match versus the Portland Trail Blazers. This is the teams first meeting this season as the Blazers look to extend a seven-game winning streak over the Bulls.
The Blazers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 65 wins in 126 meetings. Last season, the clubs played twice with the Blazers winning both contests.
Although the Bulls got out to a rough start this season they looked better in the second week of action winning three of four matches including two against the Washington Wizards as well as an impressive victory over the Mavericks.
Mind you Luka Doncic didn’t play in the latter match.
Zach LaVine led the way offensively with a stunning 39 points. Coby White (23), Otto Porter Jr. (15), and Daniel Gafford (12) each pitched in toward the offense as the other double-figure scorers.
Chandler Hutchison, Tomas Satoransky, and Ryan Arcidiacono are all dealing with the NBA health and safety standards having tested positive for COVID-19 or coming into contact with someone who has it.
Lauri Markkanen also is dealing with the same health and safety protocols as well as nursing a calf injury. All four are listed as doubtful for Tuesday.
Portland Trail Blazers
After a stellar showing with wins against the Lakers and Warriors, the Blazers suffered a loss in the second game in three days to the Dubs.
Stephen Curry put the Blazers on blast scoring a career-high 62 points. But the defense simply wasn’t on display in this match for the Blazers.
In the early going the Blazers are struggling to find consistency on both sides of the hardwood. The backcourt can be counted on nightly but finding that third scorer or Sixth Man is crucial to this iteration of the Blazers. Once Rodney Hood gains his rhythm back he might be that player.
From a defensive perspective, the team is still figuring out the schemes and transitioning new acquisitions Robert Covington, Harry Giles. and Derrick Jones Jr.
Once they gain some time with the Blazers I still think this club has the perfect roster composition to be among the best in the West.
In the loss to the Warriors, the backcourt led the way with Lillard dropping 32 and CJ McCollum adding 28 points. Enes Kanter (24) and Carmelo Anthony (10) were the other double-digit contributors.
Rodney Hood missed the last game due to a quad cramp while Nassir Little (personal) has missed the last four games. Both are questionable to play on Tuesday. Zach Collins (ankle) won’t be available until the end of January.

Both teams have struggled to find offense and had up and down efforts defensively.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Blazers ATS
With the Blazers back home in the Moda Center and getting several players back healthy my instinct is this Bulls squad could offer an opportunity for an offensive outburst from Portland.
