The Chicago Bulls are riding a three-game winning streak heading into Wednesday but will put that on the line when they face off against the Phoenix Suns in the desert. Phoenix has struggled when facing Chicago in recent years, dropping seven of their last nine against the Bulls.
- The Bulls are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games.
- The underdog is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings.
- The UNDER is 6-0 in the Suns’ last six vs. the Eastern Conference.
It’s early, but the Suns have held their own so far in the tough Western Conference. Phoenix (6-4 SU) is tied with the L.A. Clippers for fourth place thanks to a solid 5-2 home record. Chicago (7-3 SU) ranks in second in the East but is a mediocre 2-2 away from the United Center.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is battling injuries. The former MVP has played in every game this season and is averaging 13.6 points on 37.7 percent shooting while wearing a mask to protect an orbital fracture he suffered in the preseason. Rose injured his ankle in Monday’s victory over the Indiana Pacers but has said he’ll “be all right” for tonight’s contest.
