Who’s Playing

Chicago @ San Antonio

Current Records: Chicago 30-17; San Antonio 18-31

What to Know

The Chicago Bulls will square off against the San Antonio Spurs on the road at 8:30 p.m. ET Friday at AT&T Center. Chicago is expected to win — but not by much — so they will need to come into the matchup prepared for a fight.

The Bulls didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, but they still walked away with a 111-105 victory. Chicago can attribute much of their success to small forward DeMar DeRozan, who had 29 points and seven assists in addition to seven rebounds, and shooting guard Zach LaVine, who had 23 points and eight assists along with eight boards.

Meanwhile, San Antonio came up short against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, falling 118-110. Center Jakob Poeltl put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 18 points and five assists along with seven rebounds and four blocks.

Chicago’s win lifted them to 30-17 while San Antonio’s loss dropped them down to 18-31. We’ll see if Chicago can repeat their recent success or if San Antonio bounces back and reverse their fortune.
