What to Know

The Chicago Bulls will head out on the road to take on the Orlando Magic at 7:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at Kia Center. Both teams come into the match bolstered by wins in their previous matches.

Last Thursday, Chicago was able to grind out a solid win over the Grizzlies, taking the game 118-110. The victory made it back-to-back wins for the Bulls.

Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead the Bulls to victory, but perhaps none more so than DeMar DeRozan, who scored 30 points along with eight rebounds. The team also got some help courtesy of Andre Drummond, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 13 rebounds.

Meanwhile, winning is just a little bit easier when your three-point shooting is a whole 27.9% better than the opposition, a fact the Magic proved on Thursday. They enjoyed a cozy 127-111 win over San Antonio. The victory was just what the Magic needed coming off of a 121-95 loss in their prior matchup.

Franz Wagner had an outrageously good game as he scored 34 points along with seven assists and seven rebounds. He didn't help the Magic's cause all that much against the Heat on Tuesday but the same can't be said for this matchup.

Chicago pushed their record up to 25-27 with that victory, which was their third straight on the road. As for Orlando, they are on a roll lately: they've won four of their last five matches, which provided a nice bump to their 28-24 record this season.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Bulls haven't given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 11.9 turnovers per game (they're ranked fifth in turnovers per game overall). However, it's not like the Magic struggle in that department as they've been averaging only 13.8 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it'll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Bulls are hoping to beat the odds on Saturday, as the experts think they're headed for a loss. Anyone thinking of taking them against the spread should keep this in mind: the team hasn't covered the last three times they've played Orlando.


Orlando is a 4.5-point favorite against Chicago, according to the latest NBA odds.
