The Wizards, off a last-second loss to the Indiana Pacers, continue their road trip in Chicago against the Bulls on Wednesday night.
After losing three straight, the Bulls bounced back on Monday night with a huge win over the Pistons and they’ll look to continue that solid play at home.
For John Wall and Bradley Beal, the first 27 games of the 2016-2017 season have been good to them. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been great to the team as a whole. At just 12-15, the Wizards have the 22nd ranked defense in the league and have to finish out games. The Wizards have lost six games by double digit margins so far this year.
The month of December has seen a slightly better Wizards squad on both sides of the ball. Washington is 6-4 this month, and are looking better on the offensive end, despite a tough two-point loss to the Pacers on Monday.
John Wall is averaging 24 points per game and Bradley Beal isn’t far behind in that category at 22.8 PPG. Beal has been on a tear in his last five games. He’s put up 29, 20, 25, 41, 22 in his last five and is shooting 46% from the field.
Otto Porter’s numbers are up to the best in his career. He is averaging 13.6 PPG along with seven rebounds. His points are up from 11.6 last year while his rebounds are up from 5.2. Porter has contributed clutch minutes.
With Beal and Wall in sync, the Wizards have started to find their way after an abysmal start to the season. Unfortunately, the loss to the Pacers set them back slightly but they’ll look to bounce back in the United Center on Wednesday night.
After breaking a three-game losing streak on Monday night, the Eastern Conference’s 6th place Bulls are looking to string a couple of wins together and move up in a tight conference race.
Against the Pistons on Monday, the offense was firing on all cylinders, resulting in 113 points. However, this hasn’t been the recent trend for Chicago.
During the three-game losing streak, the Bulls didn’t score more than 97 points. The worst display came against the Bucks when they scored a dismal 69 points.
Chicago’s offense hasn’t been great all year.
The team averages 101.6 points, 22nd in the NBA. With the exceptions of Jimmy Butler (24.6 PPG) and Dwayne Wade (19.8), the Bulls don’t get more than a dozen points from any player on average. The team has a tough time scoring from night to night.
Despite having a top-five defense allowing just 99.8 PPG, the Bulls lose a lot of games because they simply can’t keep up in the scoring department.
Against a decent offensive Washington team, the Bulls will have to find some offensive production from more than Butler and Wade in order to win.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The OVER is 5-0 in Washington’s last five games
- The Bulls are 8-5 at home this season
Free Washington Wizards vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
If Chicago can find a way to limit the Wizards offense to under 100 points, there’s a good chance for the Bulls to win at home. Good games from Wade and Butler should propel Chicago to a W in the United Center.
