The Chicago Bulls can't win games consistently, but they've had some great covering success and have an offense that's shown flashes all season. The Bulls are quietly moving in the right direction and have some young athletes who compete. The Los Angeles Clippers are possibly the most talented team in the league when they play together, but it still feels like you're never sure what you're going to get from this team night to night or who is going to play. This is a lot of points. I'll take them with the Bulls.
