The Warriors are coming off their best offensive performance of the current campaign in Friday’s 144-113 win in San Antonio, but arrive in the Windy City sporting a league-low four road wins so far this season. The Bulls are on the rebound after opening a two-game home stand with Friday’s 124-110 loss to Oklahoma City that extends their current straight up slide to three games.

The Warriors have emerged as 4-point favourites on the Sunday NBA odds, while the total is pegged at a lofty 237.5.

Sunday afternoon’s matchup at United Center marks the second and final regular season meeting between these teams. The Warriors rolled to a 119-111 win when they hosted the Bulls back on December 2, extending their straight up win streak in head-to-head play to 11 games. The Dubs have posted against the spread wins nine times during their current 11-0 run versus the Bulls, but have failed to cover in each of their past three visits to Chicago as road chalk. The Bulls have scored 102 or fewer points in five of seven dates with the Dubs. That has translated into a steady 5-2 run for the UNDER when these teams meet.

Golden State Warriors

After being outclassed in three straight losses to close out their recent eight-game home stand, the Warriors thrived on the opportunity to play before a record-setting crowd of 68,323 at the Alamodome while marching to a dominating 144-113 win. The Dubs needed all the offence they could get after allowing 60 points before halftime, but put the game out of reach with a steady 20-5 run in the third quarter. One of eight Warriors shooters to tally double-digit point totals on the night, Jordan Poole maintained his recent steady production with a game-high 25 points, and has now averaged 27.6 points per game over his past nine outings. GSW’s offensive explosion also enabled Stephen Curry to ease his way back into action in his second appearance since returning from injury. Curry contributed 15 points in 23 minutes of action after contributing 24 points three days earlier in the team’s 125-113 loss to Phoenix that marked his first game appearance since mid-December. However, Curry has struggled to rack up big numbers in recent dates with Chicago, recording just 19 points in each of his past two appearances versus the Bulls.

Chicago Bulls

After enjoying a steady 8-3 run over the holiday season, the Bulls have once again hit the skids with three straight losses that have pushed them to the edge of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference. The club averaged an impressive 120.1 points per game during their December surge, but have seen their production tail off considerably during their current 0-3 run, with the team scoring fewer than 100 points in two of their three recent defeats. The absence of DeMar DeRozan has not helped matters. The veteran small forward has missed the past two games with a quad injury that also casts doubt on his availability on Sunday afternoon. That has placed the burden of leading the Bulls attack on Zach LaVine, who has averaged 33.4 points per game while tallying team-high point totals in each of the past five games. However, LaVine shot just 5-for-19 from the floor in Friday’s loss, and is nursing a hand injury that has raised concerns not only about his fitness, but also who will fill the offensive void if he is limited on Sunday.
