What you need to know about the Bulls

Chicago made easy work of the Brooklyn Nets on Monday and carried off a 118-95 win. Shooting guard Zach LaVine had 24 points and five assists in addition to five boards in the victory, while DeMar DeRozan had 28 points. It was a lopsided win over the favorites to win the Eastern Conference and the Bulls have established themselves as serious threats with a hot start.

Chicago now ranks sixth in the NBA in offensive rating (110.8) and fourth in the NBA in defensive rating (103.6). Both LaVine (26.2) and DeRozan (26.9) are among the top six in the NBA in scoring and having two wing scorers have made them difficult to defend, particularly in late-game situations. Meanwhile, Lonzo Ball (1.7 steals per game) and Alex Caruso (2.3 steals per game) have been terrific on-ball defenders to help make the Bulls one of the best defensive units in the NBA.

What you need to know about the Mavericks

Meanwhile, Dallas didn’t have too much trouble with the New Orleans Pelicans at home on Monday as the Mavericks won 108-92. Point guard Luka Doncic (25 points) was the top scorer for Dallas. Doncic is averaging 24.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game but secondary scoring has been an issue at times with nobody else averaging more than 15.0 points per game on the roster.

Kristaps Porzingis has battled back injuries throughout the season and has missed five games. When he’s been healthy, he’s struggled from the floor. He’s shooting just 34.8 percent from the field and the Mavericks will need him to be a more effective scoring threat to contend in the Western Conference.
