Two of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference face each other tonight at United Center.
The Bulls are coming from three straight losses, and will look to bounce back in front of their fans against the Detroit Pistons. Zach Lavine and Lauri Markkanen are the two main players on Jim Boylen’s squad, but have not been on the same level as last season, something that can’t happen if the Bulls want to have a chance at playoff basketball this year. This will mark the return of former MVP Derrick Rose to his hometown as it’s expected a standing ovation for the guard who previously won MVP honors when representing the Bulls. Otto Porter Jr and center Luke Kornet will remain sidelined for the home team, in which will be a pretty close game between these two teams.
Detroit’s finally showing signs of being healthy. After starting the season without Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose, Dwayne Casey will be able to put out on the court is best lineup as they try to recover ground in the Eastern playoff race. They’ve only won one game on the road this regular season, something that they’ll look to improve at United Center this night, or else it’s hard to imagine the Pistons playing in April. On paper, they have what it takes to win this game, but consistency has been a problem for them, as they keep looking like a playoff caliber team one night, and a lottery team the other. Nonetheless, this is a very important game for Detroit.
Even though it’s expected to be a tight contest, if both teams play to their full potential I can see Detroit stealing the win at United Center with the help of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.
