The Los Angeles Lakers will travel to the Windy City this Wednesday for an East vs. West matchup against the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers lead the all-time series 86-63, but Chicago has won six of their last seven meetings including the last three.
The Lakers surprised everyone this year by looking like a legitimate playoff contender early on. They have been up and down over the last few games though, and have now lost four of their last six. This will be the second game of a back-to-back after the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.
The Bulls have been very impressive over the last few games and currently stand 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. They have won five of their last seven games, including a 105-89 win at Philadelphia in their last one. They will certainly be the more rested team coming into this one, having not played since Friday.
Los Angeles Lakers
First-year head coach Luke Walton has whipped the young talent of the Lakers into shape much more quickly than expected. Until this year, the Lakers have had trouble adjusting to life after Kobe, but they seem to be on the right track now. However, they have shown their immaturity at times and struggled with injuries as of late. This will be a good test of the young team on a quick turnaround game.
The Lakers enter this game as the 6th best scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 108.2 points per game. They are 15th in rebounding with 43.6 and 16th in assists with 21.9 per night.
New Laker Lou Williams leads the team in scoring with 16.6 points per game and adds 3.3 assists. It is rare that a bench player leads a team like he has, but he is a skilled veteran and former Sixth Man of the Year. D’Angelo Russel contributes 16.1 and 4.8 points per game, and Julius Randle adds 13.3 points and 8.1 rebounds.
Chicago has found a nice formula for winning this year. With Derrick Rose gone and Jimmy Butler shining, there is now little question about who leads the team. Dwyane Wade has been a great addition and is a much better tag-team partner with Butler. The Bulls have been up and down the last few games, but they have faced a tough stretch and will get some much needed rest before this one.
The Bulls are currently 12th best in the league in scoring with 105.3 points per game. They are 2nd in rebounding with 49.1 and 20th in assists with 20.3 per contest. The defense has been very impressive, and they are 8th in the NBA in scoring defense (99.0 points allowed per game).
Jimmy Butler leads the team with 25.8 points per game, to go along with 6.6 rebounds. D-Wade adds 18.9 points and 4.3 boards per game. Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott and Niola Mirtotic have also been key contributors to their success.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
The Lakers have been very impressive at times this year, but they are starting to show real weaknesses over the last week or so. They have a lot of young talent, but their inexperience and immaturity has clearly costed them lately. It’s usually not a good sign when a bench player leads your team in scoring.
The Bulls seem to have really found a formula for winning. They will definitely be a force to recon with in the East and have played well against the West so far.
