Online betting tip—The Bulls show no slowing down. They created a major upset against Indiana Pacers when they handed their first defeat and definitely, they shall take every opportunity of overtaking even the mighty Miami Heat to strengthen their campaign this season.

 

Match Date: 01 December 2013 (local time)

Venue: Quicken Loans Arena

 

Team Form

Cleveland

A 7-point defeat to Washington Wizards saw the Cavaliers slip to the bottom part of the Eastern Conference’s mid table. Despite Kyre Irving’s late and superb effort, the Wizards protected their lead and demolished Cleveland’s hope of forcing a deadlock or snatching a victory.

 

Mike Brown and his men endure a poor form this season. They are victorious only in 4 of their matches, while the other 8 saw them wave the white flag. Adding more problems is their weak defence, which enables their opponents to generate an average score of 99.4, while they can only produce 99.2

 

Brown admitted that he is still in search for a superb starting lineup. If this is the case, then perhaps it will be too late before the team forms a stable frontline. The season’s end is getting near. The adjustments should work now or they might find themselves struggling at the rock bottom part of the table.

 

Chicago

The Bulls are making a grand rampage this season. With 6 wins and 3 losses, the team shows a high possibility of overtaking Miami Heat. They started with Indiana Pacers when they prevented an 11-0 run, leaving their opponent with no other choice but to accept their first defeat this season.

 

Chicago has managed to retain a balance in their offensive and defensive sides. They average on 94 points per match while conceding an average of 89 points—not bad, given the fact that they scoring average could have been higher if not for Derrick Rose’s injury. Rose endures a torn ACL, which kept him on the bench.

 

Nevertheless, while Rose’s hard court presence was hardly felt, his team mates, with the likes of Luol Deng and Taj Gibson rose to the challenge and stepped up the ante of their game.

 

 

 

Prediction: Chicago
