Chicago Bulls vs Houston Rockets Prediction and Odds: Preview
It was a shocking performance from the Bulls who have been pretty consistent. They were totally dominated throughout the game and the Pacers put up 67 points in the first half which the Bulls couldn’t cope up and lost the game.
Their field shooting was bad with 36.5% and they failed to convert their three pointers with they recorded only 21.4% shooting.
For Houston they lost their 15th consecutive game, Armoni Brooks came up with 17 points but it wasn’t enough as the Celtics ran with the game away.
Rockets reduced the gap at halftime but a sudden burst from Boston took the game away. Boston managed to score 34 points in the third quarter but Rockets could score only 16. They took the lead in the last quarter but that wasn’t enough for them to survive in the match.
Rockets have claimed just one win so far and they need to start winning games as soon as possible. They do have some promising talents with the likes of Jalen Green Jr and have to utilise them.
Chicago have a very strong offence and the Rockets cannot afford to commit any mistakes. They have lacked in defence and need to rectify the gaps before going into the game.
The loss against the Pacers would force Chicago Bulls to pick up every single step with precaution. Alex Caruso’s absence hurt their motives as they could only manage four steals and eight turnovers on the three quarters.
DeMar DeRozan has been exceptional but he also couldn’t hit the 20 points mark in the game. The bench too failed miserably as it contributed just 16 points to the match.
DeRozan broke a record in their game against New York Knicks that Michael Jordan used to hold. He collected 425 points in the first 16 matches. The previous best was Jordan who amassed 424 points back in the 19-84-85 season.
The Bulls are positioned second in the Eastern Conference and are one of the favourites to make it to the playoffs.
The lies of Lonzo Ball, Zach LeVine and DeRozan have definitely sent waves across the league with their brilliant gameplay. They have made a name for themselves and with the season getting towards its busy period they need to stay sharp.
Chicago have rebuilt the squad around DeRozan and the player has not disappointed. He has netted 26.8 points on average in every match.
Zach LaVine has 5.6 rebounds while Lonzo Ball has 4.6 assists. Alex Caruso has 2.2 steals. Derrick Jones Jr has 0.9 blocks.
For Houston, its has been a shambolic season. They have failed to turn leads into victories and their horrific defence has led them down. They need to gather up from here and will have to come with a specific game plan in their next round of matches.
For Rockets, Christian Wood is leading with 16.2 points on average per match. He also has 11.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks. Kevin Porter Jr has 5.1 assists and 1.3 steals.

I remember when at an All Star event in Chicago last year, angry #Bulls fans yelled #FireGarPax and boycotted the games. This year AK and Marc Eversley were hired and they radically changed the team to where they are now a contender for the playoffs. #Bears
Houston Rockets are 1-16 and are on pace for the worst record of all time including the short season where the Bobcats only won 7 games. The Rockets will be lucky to get 5 wins this season

Tickets sorted for the Houston Rockets vs the Chicago Bulls for the end of the month. The night before Thanksgiving. My first NBA game since the Utah Jazz in 1989. Going to wear a massive pair of Air Jordans, with a huge pump on them, just to wind up the Texans.
