Rating:

The Warriors have lost three of their last four games and three straight games on the road. They are one of the best offensive teams in the league, but they struggled during their slump and they’ve been held under 100 points in three of their last four games. They are playing on consecutive nights and won’t have Klay Thompson available for this game, so expect them to have a hard time scoring against the Bulls, who are one of the best defensive teams in the league. The Bulls have been on a roll offensively at home, where they’ve scored 130 points or more in two of their last three games. They shoot the ball well from the free-throw line and have done a great job on the offensive glass. Even though the Warriors play well defensively, expect them to have a hard time slowing them down, so go with Chicago to cover the spread.

Prediction: Chicago Bulls -3
