It’s a cross conference showdown on Friday night at the United Center between the Chicago Bulls and the Minnesota Timberwolves, and this game has a lot of story lines to watch.
This will be Jimmy Butler’s first game back in Chicago after being traded to the Timberwolves this off-season. Tom Thibodeau and Taj Gibson will also be making their returns, although not their first game back.
For the Bulls this will be his first game against the Timberwolves, a team he was drafted by and still has a lot of friends on.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have had a nice season so far this year, but come into this game off a loss that had to really hurt.
They took the Cavaliers to overtime before LeBron James hit a game winner over Jimmy Butler as time expired. In the game though the Timberwolves sit a new franchise record for three pointers hit in a game.
For the Timberwolves this season the offense has been a constant, the thing that comes and go is their play on the defensive end.
Some games they look like one of the better defending teams in the NBA, and they will do something like giving up 140 points to a Cleveland roster that decided to self implode itself the next day.
To win this game the Timberwolves just need to play their game, and Butler needs to get settled in early. Butler also needs to not let the nerves get to him and just play his game.
On the other side of this match up is the Chicago Bulls who are going through a full-blown rebuild, and it has shown with the results on the floor.
They come into this game having lost seven games in a row, and have failed to cover the spread in the last six of them.
The Bulls they usually look competitive in the first half of games, but down the stretch of games they have problems making winning plays and that leads to the struggles.
To win this game it’s going to start with slowing down Butler early. If they can get him off his game early the rest of the offense will probably struggle and they will have a chance to pull the big upset.
