Winners of their last two games, the Chicago Bulls look to extend their win streak to three games for the first time this year against the Boston Celtics. Already having won their previous meeting at home earlier this season, the Bulls will have to prove they can also best the Celtics on their own home court this time around.

The Celtics have started the year 4-3, already having defeated a host of solid Eastern Conference teams in Philadelphia, Miami, and Washington. They have dropped two overtime games against the Cavaliers, however, meaning the Bulls are the only team to have defeated Boston in regulation so far this season.

This will be the second of four meetings between the two teams this season, with the next two coming on November 22 and the other on January 10. Since all of these games are scheduled so early, we likely won’t get to see how these two teams stack up once Lonzo Ball and Robert Williams III return to their respective teams.

Here’s everything you need to know before tonight’s game tips off.

Projected Chicago Bulls Starting Lineup and Injury Report

  • PG: Ayo Dosunmu
  • SG: Zach LaVine
  • SF: DeMar DeRozan
  • PF: Patrick Williams
  • C: Nikola Vucevic
  • IR: Out – Lonzo Ball, Andre Drummond; Questionable – Coby White

The Bulls will be without Andre Drummond for the fourth consecutive game since suffering a shoulder injury after a fall in a game against the Spurs. Coby White will also very likely miss his third straight game, but hasn’t been officially ruled out just yet. Fortunately, Zach LaVine will suit up and be available for tonight’s game against the reigning Eastern Conference champions.


The Bulls have already proven they can beat the Celtics this year, after a late-game comeback on October yielded a decisive 120-102 victory for Chicago. This time, however, they’ll be without vital role players like Drummond and White. The loss of Drummond will be felt particularly hard, as he outrebounded everyone on Boston’s roster with 12 boards in just 15 minutes. With a +19 plus/minus in that game, his impact even in sparse minutes will be impossible to replicate. Still, I feel pretty confident about Chicago covering the spread here, even if they don’t pick up a win on the road against a very good Celtics team.
