Chicago Bulls -4.5 (at Utah)
We're now at 75% on the year, would like to get that figure over 80 and maintain from there. The Bulls will be looking to go above the 50% win mark and claim their first win in 4 tonight. The Bulls go into tonight on a real low as they have lost Derrick Rose for another season and they are coming in on the back of a 39 point blowout at the hands of the Clippers. That said, the Jazz have been comfortably the worst team in the NBA this season, not only losing 14 of 15 but losing almost all of them by double digits. Their young side won't have the experience to deal with this Bulls side, no matter how bruised the Bulls may be. Enes Kanter looks a doubt so that really limits any chance Utah had of winning battles inside and Noah and Boozer should look to bully their younger counterparts. Trey Burke is now setting out on his NBA career after early season injury and this should add to the disjointedness of the Jazz outfit. Though a fan of Burke, he had a tough time in Summer League and will take a while to settle in. The Jazz are also playing a back-to-back, coming off a 22 point loss to the Thunder in which their starting 5 contributed an embarrassing 29 points. The Bulls are hurting but the Jazz are bleeding out. Expect the Bulls to take care of business tonight.
Season Win %: 75
