The Chicago Bulls (10-5) will take on the Denver Nuggets (9-6) at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, November 19 at Ball Arena in Denver, Colo. The Nuggets are coming off a disappointing 103-89 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers last night, which was their second consecutive defeat. The Bulls are also coming off a 112-107 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. Nikola Vucevic (COVID protocols) and Patrick Williams (wrist) are out for Chicago, while Zeke Nnaji (ankle) and Michael Porter Jr. (back) are out for Denver. Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic (wrist) is questionable and his status will be a game-time decision.

What you need to know about the Nuggets

The game between the Nuggets and the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday was not a total blowout, but with Denver falling 103-89 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. One thing holding Denver back was the mediocre play of starting forward Jeff Green. In 23 minutes, Green totaled one rebound, zero points, zero assists, zero blocks, and zero steals.

The Nuggets played their worst game of the season against the 76ers. Jokic and shooting guard Will Barton combined for 49 points, but only seven of those came in the second half. If Jokic is unable to go on Friday night, the Nuggets will be at a severe disadvantage against a dynamic Bulls team.

What you need to know about the Bulls

Meanwhile, Chicago was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Wednesday as they fell 112-107 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Chicago was up 63-48 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Their loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of shooting guard Zach LaVine, who shot 7-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with 30 points and six boards, and shooting guard Alex Caruso, who almost posted a triple-double on 12 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists.

The Bulls will have the advantage of coming in off a day of rest, while the Nuggets played last night. The Chicago backcourt, led by LaVine, Caruso, DeMar DeRozan, and Lonzo Ball, is vastly superior to Denver’s group. All factor’s considered, the Bulls look like the better team on paper at this point in the season.
