The upcoming NBA schedule features a cross conference clash between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers, with a record of 22-23 overall and 16-8 at home, will host the Bulls, who hold a record of 21-24 overall and 7-14 on the road. In their recent encounters, the Bulls have surprisingly emerged victorious in 4 out of the last 5 meetings, including a commanding 124-108 win at home back in December.
The game is scheduled to start at 10:30 pm Eastern Time at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
The Chicago Bulls suffered a heartbreaking loss on Monday, falling 115-113 to the Phoenix Suns due to a last second jump shot. This defeat adds to the Bulls’ unfortunate streak against the Suns, as they have now lost 9 consecutive matches to Phoenix. Despite the disappointing outcome, Coby White displayed an impressive performance for the Bulls, shooting 4 for 5 from beyond the arc and coming close to achieving a triple-double with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists.
In the meantime, the Los Angeles Clippers proved to be too much for the Lakers as they suffered a 127-116 defeat last Tuesday. Despite the loss, it is important to acknowledge the outstanding performance of Anthony Davis, who recorded a double-double with 26 points and 12 rebounds. D’Angelo Russell also contributed greatly to the cause, with 27 points and 10 assists. It is worth noting that the Lakers were without LeBron James due to an ankle injury, and both James and Davis are uncertain for Thursday’s game, with Davis nursing an Achilles issue for the last couple of weeks.
The Lakers are going to be in big trouble if Anthony Davis is confirmed out for this matchup. Even though Chicago lost their last match, there was enough effort and talent that we believe they have the edge this time around.
