Bulls vs Rockets Prediction

Even with a list of unavailable players, including LaVine, the Bulls have the upper hand on this one. They have a much better campaign in the season up to now and play at home.

That being said, the Rockets already proved that are capable of winning games as the underdogs, considering the mentioned victory against Chicago itself, and the win against the Brooklyn Nets on December 8th, by 114 to 104.

The 26-year-old power forward is averaging a double-double this season, with 16.7 and a career high of 11 rebounds per game. He is also at his best on assists, with an average of 2.3.

The visiting team will surely count on him to try to take this one home.

2:44 PMa month ago

Key player of Chicago: DeMar DeRozan
