Chicago Bulls (23-43) vs. Los Angeles Clippers (36-29)

When and Where: Tuesday, March 13, Chicago, Illinois, 8.00 PM EST

The NBA 2017-18 regular season schedule is quickly entering its final quarter of play as mid-March comes closer and the final rankings are becoming more and more visible. In this article, we’ll check out the matchup that will take place at United Center between two teams that have been going in opposite directions for the entire season, the LA Clippers who are fighting for the playoff berth at the West, and Chicago Bulls who have been contemplating their, in our opinion bad roster management choices, that resulted in yet another losing season with the postseason appearance nowhere near reality.

The Clippers in search of the third straight win

The LA Clippers have entered a period of good performances after some of their top players recovered from the injuries, resulting in six wins in last eight games that positioned the team at the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference at the moment. The battle for the playoff berth on the West will be especially exciting as it features a number of teams in the position to secure it. The team scores 109.4 points per game (7th in the NBA) and allows 108.1 points to their opponents (22nd in the league).

After a mid-season trade of Blake Griffin to Detroit Pistons, Lou Williams took the role of the team’s leading scorer with 23.1 points per game. One of the players that came from the Pistons, Tobias Harris, averages 19.9 points per matchup while Danilo Gallinari posts 15.9 points per game. Williams is also team’s leading passer with 5.4 assists while Serbian native, Milos Teodosic posts second-best 5.0 assists per contest. Defensive leader is center DeAndre Jordan with 15.3 rebounds per clash. In Saturday’s home win over the Orlando Magic, Williams led the team with 25 points while Jordan recorded team-high 18 boards.

The Bulls win three of last five games

During this season, the Bulls have been operating mostly in streaks when it comes to winning and losing, but since the beginning of the month of March, that has not been the case. Last five duels were rollercoaster with ups and downs, and the team is currently coming off from a road win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. The squad scores 103.4 points per game (23rd in the NBA) and allows 109.4 points per contest to their opponents (24th in the league).

On the individual stat sheet, Zach LaVine tops the team in scoring with 16.9 points per game, while adding solid 3.0 assists per matchup. Lauri Markkanen follows with 14.9 while Kris Dunn adds 13.5 points per matchup. Dunn also tops the team in passing with 6.0 assists along with team-high 2.0 steals on average. The fact that Markkanen leads the team on the defensive side of the court with 7.6 boards per game speaks volumes about Bulls’ roster shortcomings. In Sunday’s road win over the Hawks, LaVine and Bobby Portis led the team with 21 points each.

Trends:

Los Angeles:

  • 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
  • 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • 1-7 O/U in their last eight games vs. NBA Central.

Chicago:

  • 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest.
  • 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • 6-17 O/U in Bulls last 23 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

The ATS line favors the Clippers at 5.0 points and I don’t think they should have any problems in reaching it against this Bulls team. In Totals segment, Under makes most sense according to both teams trends.

The Pick: LA Clippers / Under
