Chicago head to Los Angeles on the back of a loss, but in decent form having won six of their last nine games.

The Bulls started the year with back-to-back road defeats, losing 110-97 and 116-100 in New York, but they responded with a three-game win streak.

They beat Charlotte 104-91 at home and 119-112 in overtime on the road, before returning home to edge past Houston in overtime 124-119.

Chicago then rebounded from a 140-131 loss to Golden State with a 122-116 in San Antonio, but failed to build on that as they then lost 109-91 in Cleveland.

The Bulls rallied with a 116-110 win in Toronto, followed by a 125-96 blowout of Memphis, only then blow a big lead as they were beaten 115-113 in Phoenix.

Los Angeles Lakers Form

Los Angeles come into this game on the back of a loss and in inconsistent form, having gone 5-6 in 2024 so far.

The Lakers ended 2023 with back-to-back defeats and started 2024 with a 110-96 loss to Miami and a 127-113 defeat to Memphis.

They briefly rallied with a 106-103 win over the LA Clippers and a 132-131 victory against Toronto, only to then lose 127-109 to Phoenix and 132-125 in Utah.

Los Angeles returned to winning ways when they headed home, beating Oklahoma City 112-105 and Dallas 127-110, but they failed to make it three-in-a-row as they lost 130-112 to Brooklyn.

The Lakers responded with a 134-110 blowout of Portland, only to then suffer a 127-116 defeat at the hands of the Clippers.

Verdict

Chicago are in decent form and have been covering fairly consistent, so we like them with the points here, especially if James and Davis are missing for the Lakers.
