Brooklyn Nets vs Chicago Bulls Match Prediction
Nets are now looking like a team with ambition as a complete team is contributing equally to the wins. Durant still leading with minutes per game, is feeling less load now. The addition of Kyrie will surely support Bookie’s predictions – by making them title favorites.
Chicago Bulls now has a nice team around Zach LaVine. Ex-OKC Coach Billy Donovan will be pleased with Lonzo Ball (4.6 Assists Leads Bulls), Dynamic Alex Caruso (2.3 Steals Leads Bulls), and All-star DeMar DeRozan (26.8 Points leads Bulls). Caruso in his Laker Days has proved how handy he can be in clutch time.
Overall, this could be an interesting matchup – watching teams coming into their stride. Brooklyn Nets will have the upper hand in the match with the experience of their roster. Also, the Nets have been playing together for a longer period will give Nets a win over the Bulls.
