The Phoenix Suns will look to get back on track following a loss to the Charlotte Hornets last time out, as they head on the road for this matchup with the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
The season did not start off great for the Suns as they were a little inconsistent early on, but they have now gone on a 12-3 run in their last 15 games and look like they may be contenders in the West this year. It probably was a mistake for most people to write off the Sun’s chances early in the year given what they showed last year in the bubble, as they are making believers out of more and more NBA fans with each and every win.
The Suns did lose their last game against Charlotte which was not an awful loss, as they only lost by 3 points and Malik Monk caught lightning in a bottle putting up 29 points in just 28 minutes of floor time.
I do expect the Suns to have a big bounce-back game, however, especially with the way Booker has been playing as of late consistently eclipsing his season average of 25 points per game.
Zach Lavine got a little bit of revenge on his former team dropping 35 points on the Timberwolves in what turned out to be a 7 point overtime win for the Bulls where efficiency turned out to be the name of the game for Chicago shooting 59.1% from the field.
The main concern for the Bulls after that contest will be the fact that they surrendered 126 points to a really bad Minnesota Timberwolves team and if the Bulls defend like they did in their last game the Suns will have no problem blowing the Bulls out on their own court.
If the Bulls are going to pick up the victory this Friday I think it is going to have to be Coby White who needs to step it up a bit, as he has a solid match-up and although he put up 20 points last time out against the Timberwolves he did go 0-6 from deep and those shots need to go down here against the Suns.
Obviously the offense starts and stops with Lavine, but he already does so much and he can carry this team to victory against weaker teams, but I feel like he will need one of his teammates to step up here in a big way for the Bulls to have a fighting chance here on Friday evening.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
This could end up being a bit slower of a game and it is always hard to predict shooting efficiency, but I see this one being an absolute shootout, as I like the match-up offensively for both of these teams and I can imagine a scenario where Lavine and Booker are going shot for shot down the stretch.
