Scoring carnival: Zach LaVine and DeRozan have been on fire for the Bulls. These two combine for 50-55 points on most nights and their ability to take over games in the closing stages makes them a constant threat. With a shooter like Lonzo Ball and the return of dynamic PG Coby White, the Bulls have a lot of scoring options. Alex Caruso provides a defensive identity to the team and hustles hard on the court, he has indeed been a terrific pick-up by the Bulls in the offseason.

They have won against tough teams: The Bulls went 3-2 on their Western Road trip and then fended off a feisty Knicks team in the last game. Chicago has played well both at home and road and this unit looks ready to achieve big things this season. What makes Bulls special is their defense and with Caruso at the perimeter, the team can shut down multiple guards that has enabled their superb run. The Bulls are a top-notch squad because they play hard on both ends of the floor.

Finishing games on a low note: More than half of the losses for Pacers have been late in the game. It is largely due to their defense. The team defends decently early in the game but their late-game defense has left them wanting. It is not the Pacers have been playing terribly, the way they keep teams fighting till the last should at least have given them a winning record but Indiana’s last season problems surface again and again. Can the team turn it around or will there be changes soon?

The lineup is more than decent: Malcolm Brogdon leads the charge at point, compiling around 20 points or more on regular basis. Duarte and LeVert combine for around 28 points every game while Turner and Sabonis’ frontcourt duo accumulates around 30 points. TJ McConnell, Justin Holiday, and Jeremy Lamb have been decent off the bench too. Why is the team closing? Again, the late-game issues have held them back. 

Here are some quick-hitters related to the game:

  • Bulls are 6-2 at home.
  • Pacers are 2-9 away from home.
  • Bulls have won three out of the last four games.
  • Pacers have lost three of the last four games. Their only win in that phase was against a lowly Pelicans team.
  • Pacers have scored 111, 118, 89, 84, 118 in the last five games.
  • Bulls have scored 121, 107, 114, 103, 100 in the last five games.
  • DeMar DeRozan leads Bulls in scoring with more than 25 points per game.
  • Malcolm Brogdon is averaging around 21 points to lead the Pacers. He also leads them in assists with around 6 per game.
  • Oppositions have scored 103, 103, 112, 108, 90 in the last five games against Chicago.
  • Oppositions have scored 94, 121, 97, 92, 113 in the last five games against Indiana.
  • Chicago Bulls attempt the least number of three-pointers with around 29 on average each game.
  • Bulls commit around 12.5 turnovers per game and that number makes them top-ten in that regard.
  • Nikola Vucevic and Patrick Williams continue to be out for the Bulls.
  • TJ Warren continues to be out for the Pacers.

It is clear that the Bulls are faring much better than the Pacers this season. One of the causes for the difference between the records has been that the Bulls have closed out games better than the Pacers. The Bulls are a better defensive team too.

Points Range: If we combine the averages, then both teams score around 216 points while conceding 210 or so. However Bulls play better at home on both ends, and this game feels like it will hover in the 200-213 points range.

Verdict: Based on the current form, the Bulls are the favorites to pull through at their home floor.

  • Team Props: IND Pacers Over 102.5 for 1.86;
  • Home Team Total Points: Over 106 for 1.90;
  • Total Over 209 for 1.965.
