CHI vs PHI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
High-flying Philadelphia 76ers will be taking the road as they play a struggling Chicago Bulls in a regular season NBA match at United Center, in Chicago, Illinois, on Thursday morning (IST).
Having lost the last two games, Chicago Bulls will be looking to snap their negative run against one of the high flying teams in NBA this season. The team is still in the rebuilding process, and let us rephrase that it has been going on since the legendary Michael Jordan called it the day.
The six championships Bulls won in the 90s is almost impossible to emulate for the team in the near distant future. But the team of that pedigree shouldn’t be reeling down the table either.
This season has been no exception from their past endeavors. They have propped up the table for many weeks or could have been rooted had it not for the more distorted and frailed Cleveland Cavaliers (16-48) and New York Knicks (13-51). As things stand, the Bulls are 13th in the Eastern Conference with an 18-47 record.
But the silver lining is that once again they are on road to get the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft. And for the umpteenth time, expect Bulls to start a facelift once again. Head coach Jim Boylen could depart in the summer having failed to match the ambitions.
While as far as the roster is concerned, Chicago should target point guard positions in the draft, as Kris Dunn is expected to leave in the off-season.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia 76ers are near about being hailed as a super team. They have been rebuilding for some time and the inclusion of Tobias Harris to the roster gibes a feeling that they have acquired the last piece of the jigsaw.
But Joel Embiid is Sixers’ biggest star and it was quite evident as they went down in his absence 117-120 in a high-profile game against Golden State Warriors at home.
However, Philadelphia returned to winning ways after winning 114-106 against Orlando Magic. JJ Redick scored a game-high 26 points, who also was one of the Six 76ers players to score in the double digits.
Regular Season Record-
Chicago Bulls: W-26, L-32
Philadelphia 76ers: W-18, L-47
Players to watch out for:
Zach LaVine –The talented point guard deserves to win more Basketball games for the efforts he is making with the Bulls. The 23-year-old is racking up a team-high 23.4 points per game. He has taken his game to new heights in the last few weeks, scoring at 26 points per game.
Otto Porter Jr. – Another gem of a player in Bulls’ roster is Otto Porter Jr. Chicago acquired him during the mid-season transfer window from Washington Wizards. His signing shows Bulls’ intentions for the next season. The 25-year-old is averaging 15.83 points per game.
Tobias Harris – Scored 21 points in the last game, which is also the rate at which he is scoring this season as well. The former Los Angeles Clippers superstar is also racking up 7.9 rebounds per game.
Jimmy Butler – With Joel Embiid missing out, Jimmy Butler is doing a two-way job. Helping out the teams in defending, and scoring points, he can do almost everythingh on a Basketball court.
