The NBA Regular Season has springboarded in a big way and we are just close to the Postseason in about three weeks. Thus, every game becomes more important than ever and the competition level is only going to intensify. Anyway, in this game, Chicago Bulls are going to clash against Miami Heat.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
The Bulls enter the game after defeating the Timberwolves 139:131 in the Overtime as DeMar DeRozan pumped in 49 points. The Bulls have won three of their last four but their earlier performances have been poor because of which they have just 32 wins and 39 losses. They remain in contention for a Play-in spot but things look calamitous in the overall picture. Their defense has slumped steadily whereas their offense is also one-note, relying on the heroics of either DeMar DeRozan or Zach LaVine. Will the Bulls at least clinch a Play-in spot?
The Heat comes into the contest after pulling off a 138:119 win against the Grizzlies on a 26 points outing by Bam Adebayo. The Heat has won five of their last seven games. The Heat has managed 38 wins and 33 losses and is still in shot for a top-six position for an automatic qualification to the First Round of the Playoffs. Still, this is an underwhelming season for Miami which finished at the top of the Eastern Conference last season. Their defense isn’t as stingy as the last season and their offense has been touch-and-go more than it should have been.
- Bulls: OUT: Javonte Green, Lonzo Ball;
- Heat: OUT: Cody Zeller. QUESTIONABLE: Kyle Lowry.
Expert Betting Tips
The Bulls’ play has been okay for the past few days but they are not a reliable team and collapse under a bit of pressure. The Heat has upped their game a bit and their loaded roster can still manage a big winning streak to end on a high. Away from home, their play has been sub-par so it will be a challenge. Anyway, I expect the Heat to turn on the jets and predict a scoreline of 126:115 in their favor.
