Boston Celtics's Latest Performance :
The Celtics were able to pick up their fourth win in a row against the Knicks. Leading the way for the C’s was Kyrie Irving he scored 22 points with four rebounds, eight assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes. He went down with a minor shoulder injury shoulder so we could see Roizer gain more playing time while Kyrie is out. It was a great shooting night all around with the Celtics shooting 53.3%. The Knicks were held to only 39.6% from the field. The stat of the game was the fast break points which the Celtics dominated 26-7. Horford chipped in with 19 points and added a season-high 4 blocks. Brown had his best game of the season as he scored 21 points shooting 7-for-1o from the floor. The crisp passing and fluid movement are starting to make it return as the Celtics play well when they move the ball rather relying on isolation plays. Playing against the Bulls shouldn’t be a problem for them.
Chicago Bulls 's Latest Performance :
The Bulls have lost 12 of their last 13 games and they will be hoping to put a halt to an eight-game losing streak. They are now 5-21 on the season. The Bulls have great young talent and they understand that they are rebuilding and have pieces that can bring them over the hump. Dunn and Portis went through a full practice so we could be seeing them return to the starting line up against the Celtics. Markkanen will continue to start over Parker against the Celtics. The Bulls are 3-9 when playing at home this season. LaVine continues to be their leading scorer as he is averaging 24.5 points in 24 games played this season. It will be tough for the Bulls since the Celtics are coming into United Center winning four games in a row.
