Chicago is hanging tough in the top tier of the Eastern Conference, but they have certainly shown signs of suspect play this season.
They’ll try to rebound from a beat down they endured in Los Angeles on Sunday when they visit Utah on Monday night.
The Jazz have ran off 2 straight wins and will look to make it 3 straight with a home win here on Monday.
The Bulls still sit 7 games over the .500 mark, but they’ve looked like they did on Sunday many times this season.
Chicago was knocked around 120-93 as they couldn’t figure out the Clippers, who were even without Blake Griffin still.
The Bulls trailed by only 4 points at half time, but a huge 4th quarter saw Chicago get outscored 36-20. The Bulls were led by Jimmy Butler once again who put up 23 points. Rose, Gasol, and E’Twaun Moore all scored in double figures, but the bench serve no purpose during their time.
6 Bulls bench players had just 18 points combined on Sunday, which is something they have been making more of a habit of.
The Jazz have put together back to back wins against Charlotte and Minnesota as they closed the month of January out in style.
They used a solid combination of offensive firepower along with stellar defense to put together the nice back to back wins. They put in 102 and 103 points in each game while allowing just 73 and 90. Utah has been one of the best defensive teams in the NBA as they allow just 94.3 points per home contest.
The Jazz now sit in 9th place, just 1.5 games behind the 8 seed Portland.
This will mark game 4 of 6 at home in a row for Utah who are 2-1 on this home stand. They’ll close things out with Denver and Milwaukee on Wednesday and Friday.

The Bulls were certainly have fatigue to deal with here with this being a back to back.
Utah is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings head to head and should be able to continue their solid play defensively that has propelled them to a solid stretch.
