Bulls vs Suns Prediction

The Bulls are still shorthanded with Zach LaVine still out, but they should have Andre Drummond back in the lineup, while the Suns could be missing Grayson Allen are he left last night’s game with a leg injury. The Suns have been one of the form teams in the league lately, but they are playing on zero days’ rest after last night’s narrow win over the Pacers, so I like the Bulls who have been flying under the radar lately. This should be a close one, so while i like the Suns to get the win, I think the Bulls take it to the final minute and at least get the cover.
