New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans currently occupy the tenth position in the table with a record of thirty wins and forty-two defeats, and have only one win more than the San Antonio Spurs, so they have not yet secured a place in the playoffs. They score an average of 108.5 points while allowing opponents 109.9 points per game, so they are one of the teams playing matches at a slightly slower pace. As for the current form, they have recorded three victories and suffered two defeats in the last five matches, so we cannot say that they are welcoming the Bulls in the best mood.
In the last match, they were close to a big surprise, but thanks to a very bad game in the last quarter, they were still defeated by the Charlotte Hornets with the result of 106: 103.

The team from Chicago is well on its way to finishing the regular part of the competition among the six best-placed teams in the Eastern Conference, and after seventy-two matches played, it has achieved a result of forty-two victories and thirty defeats. In terms of efficiency, they have averaged 111.8 points per game so far this season, while allowing opponents an average of 111.2 points. They are in bad shape at the moment, considering that in the previous five matches they managed to achieve only one victory, in the last round against the Toronto Raptors with the result of 113: 99.
In the last match played, they were convincingly defeated away against the Milwaukee Bucks with 126: 98. The Bulls want to end a series of negative results, and we expect their reaction in the duel with the Pelicans.
Let’s keep the momentum going! 😤

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Chicago Bulls Prediction
The home team needs a victory at this moment, so we expect them to play much more aggressively in defense, since they do not have too many offensive qualities to match the Bulls. They are also supported by the fact that the Bulls have had a lot of offensive problems lately, so the Pelicans will have a nice opportunity to achieve a very valuable victory in the fight for a place in the playoffs in this match.
Prediction: Chicago Bulls Under 114.5
