The Bulls are coming off a great win against the 76ers. They look to take on the Lakers tomorrow for the second time this season. Last game they played ended in a 118-110 win for the Bulls. Jimmy Butler had an MVP level game that night posting a season high 40 points. The bulls were able to get the win even with Dwyane Wade resting. Good bench production as well as great rebounding really helped carry the load with Wade sitting out. So what can we expect out of them for tomorrow? Well with Wade back in the lineup Butler won’t need to have a 40 point outburst again. However with McDermott still out the starters will have to up their game a bit to make up for that missing scoring. Gibson and Lopez are key to tomorrows game as well. The Lakers are 17th in the league in rebounding. Since the Bulls are 2nd this should provide an advantage that can be used to get the win. Last time these teams met the Bulls ended the game with 16 offensive rebounds. If they can repeat that type of aggressiveness on the boards then they should have no trouble against this young Lakers team. Keeping Lou Williams from getting hot from 3 will be key as well. Having Wade back will be helpful in defending the young shooters on the Lakers too. Having 5 days of rest should really help all the players win against the Lakers who will be playing the 2nd half of a back to back. Winning tomorrow will give the bulls a 5-1 record at home as well as an overall record of 11-6.9695144-brandon-ingram-jimmy-butler-nba-chicago-bulls-los-angeles-lakers-842x560.jpg
