Detroit Pistons vs Chicago Bulls Preview

After a 131-127 OT loss away in Denver overnight, Billy Donovan and the Chicago Bulls seek a return to winning ways vs Eastern Conference strugglers Detroit as Sunday evening turns into early Monday morning (GMT).

Four games below .500, a possible postseason berth could slip out of their grasp if they continue to loosen their grip on winnable games in crunch time - like against MVP candidate Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray last time out.

First-time All-Star guard Zach LaVine had 32 points, Otto Porter Jr (22 pts, 9-of-13) and Coby White (17 pts, four rebs) had efficient scoring nights from the bench, but their transition defence and late-game execution left a lot to be desired as they ultimately relinquished a 14-point lead with 7:38 to go.

Detroit Pistons vs Chicago Bulls Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is narrowly leaning towards a Chicago road win (53.4%), and it makes sense, given the Pistons' well-documented demise of late. However, they have won successive games for the first time in a month - albeit against two undermanned sides in Toronto (COVID-19 protocols) and a rebuilding Houston side (injuries). 

Chicago will be itching to atone for the aforementioned defeat, but it's not exactly a certainty they win this matchup - despite facing considerably weaker opposition. Jerami Grant had 18 points but shot poorly (5-of-21), so I'd be surprised if he and rookie SF Saddiq Bey (6-of-15) don't produce more efficient scoring displays. 

However, I'm inclined to predict Chicago ultimately outscore their hosts in another tightly-contested affair like their 105-102 win last month (February 18).
