San Antonio Spurs at Chicago Bulls

Thursday February 17, 2011 8:00 PM EST

Line: Chicago -2

San Antonio is 6-2 on their current 9 game road trip. They have won 2 straight coming into this one, and they own the best record in the NBA. The Spurs beat the Bulls in mid November 103-94. However, that Bulls team had C Joakim Noah and didn’t have PF Carlos Boozer. The Bulls have now won 3 straight, and could head into the all-star break with a big win over the top team in the NBA.

Stats to consider:

San Antonio Spurs:

  • San Antonio is 46-9 with a 21-7 road record.
  • Points per game: 103.5 (6th)
  • Points allowed per game: 96.1 (10th)
  • Rebounds per game: 42.9 (8th)
  • Assists per game: 23.1 (6th)

Chicago Bulls:

  • Chicago is 37-16 with a 24-4 home record.
  • Points per game: 98.2 (18th)
  • Points allowed per game: 92.3 (2nd)
  • Rebounds per game: 44.1 (2nd)
  • Assists per game: 21.8 (12th)

What to watch for:

  • Spurs SG Manu Ginobli leads this team with 17.9 PPG and 1.6 SPG. He is 2nd with 4.9 APG and truly has been the leader of this Spurs team. PG Tony Parker is 2nd with 17.3 PPG and leads the team with10.1 RPG 6.7 APG. C Tim Duncan is 3rd on the squad with 13.4 PPG and leads the team with 9.2 RPG.
  • Chicago PG Derrick Rose is in the MVP talks with his team high 24.5 PPG and 8.2 APG. PF Carlos Boozer is 2nd on the team with 19.4 PPG and leads the team with 10.1 RPG. SF Luol Deng is 3rd on the team with 17.6 PPG and also has 6.1 RPG.

This basketball pick is made tough because of the fact that these two teams are very different. The Spurs have defied everything by leading the league in record. Everyone said that this team was old and on the decline. Chicago on the other hand has exceeded expectations as they have the 3rd best record in the East. Once this team gets back C Joakim Noah, expect big things. This game should be a great one with Chicago barely getting an edge as 7 of the 9 Spurs loses have come on the road.
