Normally the Clippers having to travel Chicago would be an issue. This Bulls team is unprecedentedly bad however and LA has been playing pretty well on the road lately. Does the travel catch up to the Clippers Friday as they play in their fourth straight road contest? LA has already won 2 of 3 on the road and they seem to like being away from the Staples Center.
Just when you though Chicago was going to pull things together after a win in Cleveland on MLK day, they go ahead and drop a 20 point loss to Atlanta at home as -2 favorites. Chicago is just 5-18 at home but it doesn’t matter where they play lately (except for maybe Cleveland) – they look bad. Does this team in disarray get any love from bettors in this one?
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have actually enjoyed their recent road trip posting wins in San Antonio and Miami while dropping an 8 point contest in Dallas. The win over the Heat was impressive as it came in a back to back but Friday marks the Clippers 3rd game in 4 nights. LA heads home after Friday night’s game so are they in danger of looking past the Bulls in this matchup?
Lou Williams continues to provide energy off the bench for the Clippers after he’s been limited a bit by a hamstring issue. The Bulls have allowed 120+ in 4 of 8 so LA should see another productive night for their top 10 offense. The Clippers have been putting up limited offensive numbers as of late however, scoring 111 or less in 7 of 8.
Tobias Harris is in line for another big night vs. Chicago’s somewhat surprising 16th ranked scoring defense overall. Harris has scored 27+ in 3 of 4 and has a favorable matchup against a Chicago team that goes deep into their rotation. Montrezl Harrell is probably the X factor vs. a Bulls team that is mismatched on the blocks.
The LA defense has played especially well on their recent road trip and they’re rewarded in the finale with the league’s #29 scoring offense. Chicago hasn’t scored more than 105 points in their last six games. The Clippers meanwhile have held two of three opponents under 100 points on their road swing.
Chicago really laid an egg after their MLK Day win over the Cavs. In that game in Cleveland, Chicago looked to turn a corner in a 104-88 victory. Zach Lavine looked great in the game with 25 points while Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker combined for 25 off the bench in the victory.
How did Chicago follow up that victory on Monday? By being blown out 101-121 at home vs. the Hawks who were missing Kent Bazemore and Kevin Huerter. John Collins was dominant for Atlanta with 35 points which bodes well for the Clippers’ front court.
The Chicago defense has been a bit exposed lately, most recently allowing Atlanta to shoot 50% from the field on Wednesday. On their recent 5 game road trip out West, Chicago allowed 124 or more points in three of the games including 146 to Golden State and 135 to Denver. Miami doesn’t have the potency of those offenses – but they’re still capable.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
How do you take the Bulls with any amount of points right now – home or away? They had a great opportunity to build on a win Monday and subsequently got blown out by 20 by a shorthanded Hawks team. The Bulls can lay an egg every single night – and often do.
The Clippers might be a bit road weary, but even a tired LA team is better than that thing that Chicago trots out there every night.
