Who’s Playing

Chicago @ Los Angeles

Current Records: Chicago 9-4; Los Angeles 8-6

What to Know

The Chicago Bulls haven’t won a contest against the Los Angeles Lakers since Nov. 20 of 2016, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Monday. They will face off at 10:30 p.m. ET Nov. 15 at Staples Center without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.

Chicago netted a 100-90 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. The Bulls’ small forward DeMar DeRozan did his thing and had 35 points and five assists along with seven boards.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles beat the San Antonio Spurs 114-106 on Sunday. Power forward Anthony Davis had a stellar game for the Lakers as he posted a double-double on 34 points and 15 rebounds in addition to six dimes.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Chicago is expected to win a tight contest. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (5-2), so they might be worth a quick bet.

The Bulls are now 9-4 while Los Angeles sits at 8-6. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Chicago comes into the matchup boasting the fourth fewest points allowed per game in the league at 102.7. On the other end of the spectrum, the Lakers are third worst in the league in points allowed per game, with 111.9 on average.
