Both teams come into Thursday playing in the 2nd leg of their back-to-back when the Chicago Bulls host the Los Angeles Clippers on TNT.
The Clippers used a giant 2nd half to propel themselves over the Bucks.
The Bulls stumbled after leading at half as the Boston Celtics remained hot in a 5 point home win over Chicago.
The Clippers continue to pick up more and more steam and they took another step in the right direction after their 109-95 win over Milwaukee.
With the win, Los Angeles has now won 6 of their last 7 and 3 straight. Their matchup against Chicago will mark the 3rd game of the Clippers 5 game road trip.
PG Chris Paul has made quite the difference over the past two games since returning from injury. Paul dished out 18 assists and added 18 points to his credit in Wednesday’s win.
Also playing in his 2nd game since returning from injury was JJ Redick. The SG was on the benefiting side of Paul’s assist brigade as he finished with 31 points. Redick made 6 of 9 from behind the arc as well.
Los Angeles has won 5 straight in Chicago.
The Bulls coughed up a lead in Boston and fell for the 3rd straight game. Chicago has raced out of the gates fast in all 3 of their losses, but have collapsed in the 2nd half of all 3.
With the loss, Chicago is now on their longest losing streak in over 2 seasons.
Jimmy Butler was the highlight of the Bulls lost on Wednesday as he finished with 31 points and shot 12 of 14 from the free throw line. The rest of the Bulls shot just 4 of 9 from the stripe, which was a main reasoning behind their loss.
The Bulls tried experimenting with their lineup as they put Taj Gibson in over Nikola Mirotic. In the end, Mirotic still played more than Gibson.
Chicago is 7-3 SU at home this season, but just 2-8 ATS in those 10 games.

Free NBA Prediction:
With this being the back end of the back-to-back, both teams will certainly show some fatigue here. However, this should be a back and forth kind of game with it going down to the wire.
