Both teams in this matchup have gotten their star players back from injury this season, but only one of the two has played like the MVP candidate they were before they went down, and that’s Paul George, who’s excelled while Derrick Rose has struggled to get back to full health.
The Indiana Pacers are riding George up the Eastern Conference standings, and look to pick up their fourth consecutive victory when they visit the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
George has scored 25 or more points for the Pacers in six consecutive games, marking the longest such streak of his career. In that time, he’s averaging 29.3 points and 9.3 rebounds. He hasn’t been the only Pacer putting up impressive numbers. Glenn Robinson III scored a season-high 11 points in 21 minutes during Friday’s game.
Robinson missed each of the first four games this season after playing in only 35 games a year ago while with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Philadelphia 76ers. His insertion into the rotation has given the Pacers a helpful scoring boost.
Bulls guard Jimmy Butler rebounded from a seven-point scoring effort against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday by scoring 27 points in a 102-97 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday. The team also got Joakim Noah back Friday after he missed the team’s previous game with a sore knee.
Noah collected a season-high 18 rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench. Scoring has still come tough for Noah, who is averaging 2.5 points on 30.8 percent shooting, but he continues to contribute to the team in other areas.

Free NBA Prediction:
In recent seasons, both of these teams have really made a name for themselves with their play at the defensive end of the court, but there’s been a fundamental shift in philosophy for both sides, and both are willing to play at a faster pace and put a greater emphasis on scoring the basketball.

In a game that figures to be much faster paced than previous editions in the series, expect these teams to keep the scoreboard operator busy in a game that will feature plenty of scoring. Indiana picked up a win in Chicago a year ago and is in a good spot to claim another victory here.
