Though Golden State has a .500 record over their past four, no one will remember anything prior to Monday’s MLK Day beat down of the Cavs. The defending champion Cavaliers were embarrassed at home by MVP favorite Steph Curry and the Warriors 132-98, with Curry contributing 35 points in only three quarters of play. The Warriors beat the Bulls by 12 points back in November, but this is the closing game of a three-game road trip. Steph Curry will need the continued help of his teammates to fight through the East Coast fatigue and beat the Bulls.
Chicago has dropped four of their last six, so they need this one as much as the next team. Losing Joakim Noah long-term definitely stings, but having a former superstar step in to replace him isn’t the worst situation the Bulls could be in. Pau Gasol will see a big jolt in his playing time, which could result in a steady DFS production, but others such as Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis will see some wood as well. In these teams’ first meeting, Jimmy Butler shot 11-of-16 vs Curry, Iguodala, Green and Barnes…but he was 0-for-4 when Klay Thompson was covering him. Watch for the game inside the game in this one.
