CHI vs PHI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Philadelphia 76ers will be looking to end a four-game skid when they play Chicago Bulls in a regular season NBA match at United Center, in Chicago, Illinois, on Sunday morning (IST).
Chicago Bulls are set to spend another post-season without playing any part in it. The greatest team of the 90s is reeling down the table, possessing a negative record of 29-50.
The Bulls are finishing the season on a good note though. They have split up the last 10 games coming into this game while beating Washington Wizards 115-114 in the last match at Capital One Arena.
The shorthanded Bulls were led by Walter Lemonn, Jr. who had the game’s highest efforts with 24 points. Six more players scored in the double-digits, led by JaKarr Sampson who scored 18 points from the bench.
Chicago are a young team with a lot of potential for the future. Adding good players to the roster can really transform this team. Outscoring the opponents has been their Achilles Heel. Head coach Jim Boylen knows that he needs good quality offensive players to make this team a contender for the playoffs. He knows his team is a work in progress.
“I have a sense. I don’t want to act like I have all the answers. I think the multi-ballhandler thing is good. Our spacing improved. I thought we established driving the ball to the paint this year. We’ve done that well. So there is some foundation laid,” he said.
“But it will be a work in progress.’’
While Philadelphia 76ers are reaching their potential. Joel Embiid is certainly the player who is playing at a totally different level. He is the main reason behind 76ers rise this season.
In the last game, Embiid had a triple-double against Milwaukee Bucks but couldn’t save his team from the jaws of defeat. Philadelphia lost the game 122-128.
Regular Season Record-
Chicago Bulls: W-22, L-57
Philadelphia 76ers: W-49, L-30
Players to watch out for:
JaKarr Sampson – With a huge injury list and with nothing to gain from the season, head coach Jim Boylen is not shying away from giving chances to the fringe players. JaKarr Sampson is one of those players, and he has justified his coach’s decision, scoring at 20.0 points per game.
Walt Lemon Jr. – Played just 3 games this season, but he has impressed. The 26-year-old point guard has scored at 16.3 points per game.
Joel Embiid – Missed the last three games due to the rest purposes. A healthy Embiid is a far better option than some wins at the end of the regular season. But the Sixers’ best player this season is expected to return to the squad for this match. The 25-year-old Center is stacking up 27.3 points per game and 13.7 rebounds per game this season.
Jimmy Butler – This is his game. He is set to hog the limelight for this is the first time he returns to the Target Canter after forcing a move away from the team. With Sixers, he is having a pretty solid season so far, averaging 18.7 points per game.
CHI vs PHI Dream11 TEAM NEWS:
Injured – Bulls have a big injury list. It’s difficult to know where they would have been had they played at their full strength. But still, the position would have been a little bit different. For this game as well, Bulls are without seven players.
Wendell Carter Jr. (finger injury), Kris Dunn (back injury), Chandler Hutchison (toe injury), Zach LaVine (thigh injury), Lauri Markkanen (illness), Otto Porter Jr. (shoulder injury) and Denzel Valentine (thigh injury) all will be missing the match.
Questionable – None at the moment.
Suspended – None.
Injured – Furkan Korkmaz (knee injury) and Justin Patton (foot injury) are out of this match for the Sixers.
Questionable – Jimmy Butler missed the big game against Milwaukee Bucks due to back tightness. The former James Ennis remains a doubt due to muscle injury.
Suspended – None.
