Oklahoma City is a sleeper super team but so far the results have just been so-so. They will be in Minnesota the night before in a game that could go either way so be sure to check those game notes before making your decision on this one.
Chicago might be the worst team in the league but for right now they are just bad. They really struggle to score but they are coming off a win, against equally bad Atlanta.
Creating a super team is not new in the NBA but creating one around a player – Russell Westbrook – coming off an MVP season, and who might not be so good at sharing is going to be a challenge for Billy Donovan.
The last man in was mercurial Carmelo Anthony. I always thought Melo got a bad rap. He is an all time score, sort of the Dominique Wilkins of the modern age. It is not his fault he is not the all all around force that LeBron is.
Anthony is leading the team in scoring in the early going at 24ppg. Westbook is still close to a triple double but not scoring the way he was a year ago. You want to think that team success will smooth that over but that success will have to be obvious.
The third guy in their talented trifecta is Paul George. George has really struggled wit his shooting so far but seems to be playing the Chris Bosh role. It is unlikely he will rock the boat, he will just leaver after the season if the fit is not right.
In a one game scenario this club is loaded but there is not much depth so watching them in back to back situation is going to be interesting. Do they power through? Their lone test like that thus far was a home loss.
After getting rid of Jimmy Butler, Dwayne Wade and Rajon Rondo it is easy to wonder just who is left on the Bulls this season. Eventually it will be Zach Lavine (he is hurt) but for right now the answer is Justin Holiday and Lauri Markkanen. One a journeyman the other a prospect.
Holiday is a shooter already on his fifth NBA team. He can be lethal from the outside but if his game was going to reach a certain level it would have already. His bump in numbers are as much about opportunity as anything else. The rookie is something different. He is the Dirk mold of a long shooter type. Averaging 16 and 10 while making 40% of his threes you can make a case that he, as much as anybodoy else is making a strong case for rookie of the year.
The rest of the squad is composed of flawed players who probably half of who should not even be on NBA rosters. No one has really stepped up and grabbed hold of an opportunity.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
There is no way that Chicago can complete with OKC based on talent. The question is whether the schedule is enough of an equalizer.
I don’t see that happening but it has to be a factor in setting the number. My hope is that the Thunder lose the night before providing a little more wiggle room.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I am going to be fading Chicago a lot this season. The way they score (or don’t ) means there will be some real ugly games.
