The Bulls had one of the worst post defenses in the NBA for much of the first half of the season – but they did something about it, trading for Nikola Vucevic on Thursday. The former Magic big man is expected to make his Chicago debut on Saturday night.
Despite Chicago being revamped, the Spurs are still a -2 point favorite in this matchup. That’s somewhat strange considering San Antonio has lost four in a row, and
The Bulls fixed their biggest glaring weakness by addressing their lack of an interior presence. Chicago being obliterated by opposing C’s was evident in their last matchup with San Antonio as Jakob Poeltl had 20 points and 16 rebounds 10 days ago.
The Spurs stole one in that 106-99 victory, outscoring the Bulls 39-19 in the 4th quarter. Now that Chicago has a bona fide big, will that change the result this time around against San Antonio?
The tipping point that demanded Chicago make some sort of the move at the deadline was a 104-93 home loss to Cleveland last Wednesday. Jarrett Allen and Larry Nance, Jr. combined for 33 points and 23 rebounds in that game.
Now Chicago has another star to pair with Zach LaVine. Vucevic was averaging 24 points and 11.5 rebounds for Orlando. By trading away Wendell Carter, Jr. and Otto Porter Chicago can also get their rotation a bit more finely tuned.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs were neither buyers nor sellers at the trade deadline, happily seeing how things play out as they are the current 8 seed in the West. San Antonio just got swept at home by the Clippers, losing two games by a combined 46 points.
It is somewhat confusing that San Antonio would be favored in Saturday night’s matchup, even at home. The Spurs are just 10-13 on their own court, and Chicago is better on the road at 10-8.
There’s just nothing very exciting about this current Spurs squad aside from maybe DeMar DeRozan. The veteran did not play in the first meeting with the Bulls and San Antonio still won. They have to like their chances in the rematch.
Poeltl will have a much tougher go of it with Vucevic joining the Bulls however. That was easily his best game of the season, but he also had help as five different Spurs players logged at least 14 points.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
This game may have trap written all over it, but how do you not like Chicago getting points? Chicago has had an extra night of rest and will be debuting a much improved interior presence with Vucevic.
Sure it’s going to take some time for Vucevic to get familiar with his new teammates, but he’s still a huge improvement over Carter, Jr., Daniel Gafford, and Luke Kornet.
