The Lakers are on a 4 game losing skid coming into this game but are playing much better basketball lately. The last games were all decided in the final seconds and against teams all currently in playoffs. The Lakers are playing very competitive basketball compare to early in the season, exactly what the fans are wanting in Kobe Bryant’s farewell season. Bryant unfortunately dislocated his finger against the San Antonio Spurs in the Lakers’ most recent loss. He will still be expected to dress for this game and hope to continue his good performance, averaging 25 pts, 6 boards and 3 assists over the last 7 games.
The Bulls are currently in a rough spot especially when it comes down to injuries. They’re currently playing now without three big starters: Joakim Noah, Nikola Mirotic and recently Jimmy Butler, all looking to be out for some significant time. The Bulls before their more recent wins against the Raptors were on a 5 game losing streak. Derrick Rose has been stepping his game up averaging 20.8 pts, 5.7 assists and 5.6 boards the last 9 games. The Bulls have been getting great help as well from Doug McDermott, who recently dropped a career high 30 pts against the Raptors.
