As we enter a new week in the schedule, the Chicago Bulls are desperately searching for a way to stop the bleeding and patch up the holes in this team before it’s too late. Having lost six of their last seven games, picking up a win now is more crucial than ever. Unfortunately, things won’t come easy tonight, as they’re set to take on the top-seeded Boston Celtics.

The Bulls and Celtics have split the season series thus far, with Chicago successfully defending their home court back in October before falling to the Celtics in Boston in early November. Round 3 of the season series takes place in Chicago tonight, with their fourth and final meeting of the season taking place in January.

DeMar DeRozan has been a particularly dynamic force against Boston this season, leading both games in scoring for the Bulls with a total of 71 points between the two contests. Let’s hope he has enough in the tank to knock off the 13-3 Celtics tonight, as so many other teams have failed to do so this year.

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

After being held to just four minutes on the court against the Magic, look for Coby White to have a much larger role tonight as he fully returns from injury. Having missed the 8 games before that, Chicago has sorely missed Coby’s shooting off the bench, as seen by their 3-5 record during that span.

Game Predictions

As much as I’d like to believe the Bulls can bounce back tonight, I’ve yet to see any indication that this roster is on the same page and in a mental state to do so. If Billy Donovan isn’t going to make the necessary adjustments to keep this Bulls team competitive, it’s hard to have any real faith in their ability to turn things around. That being said, Chicago has already proven it can beat Boston once this year, so this game does have real upset potential if DeRozan and LaVine each managed to get involved early and often.
