The Bulls have won 3 straight and they have played the solid teams of the Blazers, Wizards, and Heat. They have been a balanced team and 2 of their last 3 wins have been on the road.
The Jazz had their 2-game win streak snapped in their last game and they have not lost 2 straight games all season.
In their last games the Bulls beat the Portland Trailblazers 113-88 and the Jazz lost to the Memphis Grizzlies 102-96.
The Bulls rank 11th in the league in points per game and 7th in opponents’ points per game.
In the Bulls last game they beat the Blazers and while they did not have a great shooting night they held Portland to a FG% of only 35.8%. In the game they got off a blazing start outscoring the Blazers 35-21 in the first quarter and they never looked back.
Every Chicago starter had at least 12 points in the win over the Blazers with Jimmy Butler going for 27 and Dwyane Wade going for 19 points.
The Bulls have 5 players averaging in double figures led by Butler (24.5 ppg). Chicago’s new C in Robin Lopez has also been solid in his first season in the Windy City averaging 9.3 ppg and 7.5 rpg.
The Bulls will be shorthanded in this game, as Doug McDermott is out and Rajon Rondo, who leads the team in assists per game, is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Bulls are 3-3 on the road this season.
The Jazz have one of the best defenses in the league ranking 2nd in opponents’ points allowed, but only rank 26th in the league in points per game.
While Utah shot a better FG% than the Grizzlies in their loss to them and they forced more turnovers Memphis shot the 3 well while Utah did not.
Only 2 starters for the Jazz scored in double figures in the Memphis game and Gordan Hayward only went for 13 points on 4/14 shooting and he missed 6 of his 7 3-pointers.
The Jazz have to hit the glass better than they did in the Grizzlies game, as they gave up 14 offensive boards and they cannot give the Bulls 2nd chances like that in this game.
Like the Bulls the Jazz will also be shorthanded in this game, as 2nd leading scorer George Hill is questionable with a thumb injury and Derrick Favors (10.5 ppg 6.5 rpg) is out with a knee injury.
The Jazz have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games facing the Bulls.
The Jazz are 2-2 at home this season.
