If you look at their record, especially lately, you would never know that the Bulls have been playing without the defending MVP of the league. The Bulls are 17-3 in their last 20 games and their most recent win came in Detroit on Friday night by a score of 83-71. The Thunder come into today’s game on a bit of a roll themselves winners of 5 straight and only trail the Bulls by one game for the league’s overall best record.
It has just been astonishing what the Bulls have accomplished since Derrick Rose has left the lineup. With that said, if there is any team playing to the level of the Bulls lately it has been the Thunder who have beaten teams by an average of 14.2 points per game during their 5 game winning streak. This game should be a classic, but we expect not having Rose to effect the Bulls in this one. Feel comfortable laying the points and take the Thunder in this one so before placing a wager read sportsbook reviews.
