Prediction: Celtics vs Bulls

Via TNT

The Celtics play tonight in Chicago at 8pm on TNT. The Celtics will be without both Avery Bradley and Jaylen Brown while Dwayne Wade has officially been ruled out for the Bulls. The Celtics continue their brilliant form as they roll into Chicago having won their last 4 games and 12 of their last 13. The Bulls on the other hand have lost 3 of the last 4 and have been inconsistent all season. However, Jimmy Butler is expected to play tonight and have no minute’s restriction. The Celtics are underdogs tonight with the projected line at Bulls -1. Thomas has been an absolute beast lately and is even better on the second night of a back to back. Look for Thomas to have another big game but for Marcus Smart to be the x factor as well. Over the last five games, Smart is shooting 52% from the field and is averaging 3.8 steals per game to go along with 15.2 points in those contests. I think the Celtics will win this one 104-100.
