The Celtics travel to Chicago after losing a heartbreaker to the Spurs last night by a score of 87-86. The Celtics did their best to mount a comeback, but a Paul Pierce last second shot came up short and the Spurs came out winners. Ray Allen returned for the Celtics, but even though that made Avery Bradley come off the bench he still played very well for Boston. He led the team with 19 points in the game. Rajon Rondo was again stellar for the Celtics as well scoring 17 points and tallying 11 assists in 44 minutes played. The loss vs. the Spurs also snapped a 5 game winning streak in the process as well.
Coming off of a loss to the Thunder over the weekend, most thought the Bulls would bounce back in a big way vs. the Rockets on Monday. Instead the Rockets shocked the Bulls 99-93. That was the first back to back losses for the Bulls on the season. The frontcourt of the Bulls did not miss a beat against the Rockets and scored 55 points. Without Derrick Rose and outside of a potential big game from John Lucas the Bulls backcourt has struggled in the points department lately and did so on Monday. With that said however the Bulls are 7-4 in this recent stretch with Rose being on the sideline, which is an admirable mark to say the least.
Head to head the Bulls have straight up speaking won two of the last three between the two teams and the Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last four games in Chicago.
Something to monitor is the status of Derrick Rose because he is listed as a game time decision for this one. He has been practicing all week so all indications point towards him playing. With that fact and the trends being overwhelming we are leaning towards the Bulls covering at home tonight. The game may be close for the first half or three quarters, but the Celtics have struggled on 0 days rest and are catching the Bulls at a bad time coming off of two losses in a row.
