The Golden State Warriors play host to the Chicago Bulls tonight at the Oracle Arena.
The Bulls look to build on their current four-game win streak after sneaking past the Suns in a 103-97 victory on Wednesday. With Derrick Rose sidelined by an ankle injury, Jimmy Butler stepped up and led the way with a season-high 32 points, Pau Gasol added 17 points and Kirk Hinrich added as the Bulls improved to an impressive 8-3 on the season and 3-2 on the road. Bulls fans must be sick of seeing their former MVP in Rose sitting in street clothes on the bench, but he is listed as a game time decision for Friday so we'll just have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, the Warriors continued their unbeaten start to the season with a monumental 124-117 win over the Clippers as they rallied back from a 23-point deficit to improve to 13-0 on the season. Stephen Curry led the way with six 3-pointers on his way to 40 points but he also had plenty of help as Klay Thompson scored 25 points, Harrison Barnes added 21 and Draymond Green had 19. It's getting harder and harder to pick when the Warriors will lose their first game as they never gave up no matter the score, storming home on a 70-49 second half capped by a 22-5 run to close out the game.
In ATS trends, the Bulls are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, while the Warriors are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games playing on zero days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games.
Head to head, the Bulls are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Golden State but you just know that the Bulls had this game marked on their calendar so I'm taking them compete for 48 minutes and keep this game to single digits at the very least.
