NBA Predictions: Bulls vs. Lakers 11/21/17

NBA Predictions: Bulls vs. Lakers 11/21/17

Hart contributed five points in 15 minutes. After playing a back-to-back set against Chicago and a game Wednesday in Sacramento, they will have a rare four-day break before playing the Clippers on Monday.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Kuzma led the way as the Los Angeles Lakers staged a late rally to down the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday.

The Bulls sent the Lakers into a quick third quarter timeout with a 5-0 start for a 61-42 lead. Four other Chicago players posted double-digit scores. Coach Fred Hoiberg said Markkanen will keep his starting role once Nikola Mirotic (face) comes back, so his owners have nothing to worry about for the time being. After Ingram made a hard layup with 1:16 left, Caldwell-Pope alertly kept a loose ball alive after Lonzo Ball missed a 3-pointer, allowing the Lakers to seal their first win over the Bulls at Staples Center in three tries. Chicago was outscored 28-21 in the fourth quarter.

Los Angeles committed 13 first-half turnovers, played poor defense and would have been buried without Kuzma's gritty scoring.

Valentine and Lopez each went 4-for-4 from the field in the opening quarter and combined for 19 of Chicago's 27 points.

Chicago enters with a 3-11 overall and 7-7 ATS after a 113-105 loss at the Suns.

Los Angeles won their last game against the Denver Nuggets, 127 - 109; Ball records second career triple-double.

Lauri Markkanen continues to impress. Ball made multiple three-pointers for the fourth time this season but still shot an underwhelming 3-of-13 from the field and 2-of-8 from 3-point land. The Lakers came in last in the National Basketball Association in 3-point shooting percentage at 29.4 percent, and they shot 32.5 percent from beyond the arc.

Denzel Valentine led Chicago's points with 17 while Antonio Blakeney was the next highest with 15. The Bulls came in shooting the lowest percentage in the league at 41.4 percent. Down by as many as 19 and looking as cooked as a turkey on Thanksgiving, the Lakers refused to quit whenever they fall behind big.

They will broadcast up to seven lives games per week throughout the regular season and the first and second rounds of the playoffs, as well as every game of the conference finals and NBA Finals. Bulls C Robin Lopez entered with an 8.8 career scoring average, and his twin brother, Lakers C Brook Lopez, came in with an 18.5 career scoring average.
