Warriors Analysis

Golden State WarriorsThe Golden State Warriors will be well rested for tonight’s game as they will be playing in just their second game in six days.

After losing to the Rockets by one point in overtime last Thursday, they have won their last two against the Kings, and they blew out the Knicks 122-95.

They limited all but two of the Knicks starters under double digits in scoring, and Klay Thompson has officially put his December slump behind him. He had 43 points, and as our Tom Petrini pointed out, he did it all taking four dribbles.

It was also a marquee night for several other Warriors players. Draymond Green didn’t need to score much, but he had 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Stephen Curry had a 14 and 14 game with points and assists, and Kevin Durant continued doing Kevin Durant things.

Chicago Bulls Starting Lineup

Position Starter
PG Kris Dunn
SG Zach LaVine
SF Chandler Hutchison
PF Lauri Markkanen
C Wendell Carter Jr.

Bulls Analysis

Chicago BullsThere’s been one common thread in most of the Bulls’ losses lately – they’ve been blowouts. The trouble is the blowouts haven’t come against the toughest opposition. Brooklyn beat them by 17 and the Magic beat them by 28.

Going up against the two-time defending champions, the Bulls will hope to avoid another blowout and stop their skid from reaching six games.

Against Portland on Wednesday, their problems came more on the defensive end. Most of their scorers found their shots, with rookie center Wendell Carter Jr. finishing with 22 points, and Kris Dunn, Zach Lavine, and Lauri Markkanen finishing in double figures as well.

They were also beat on the boards all night, and with Draymond Green around, they’ll have to make sure to try to box him out and keep him from giving the Warriors additional scoring opportunities.
