Staff Prediction

The Bulls come into this one playing good basketball as of late, having won 3 of their last 4 games. DeMar DeRozan is having another great season for Toronto and scored 33 points in his last game out. The Hornets come into this matchup having lost their last 2 games. They are coming off of a 31-point blowout loss to the Suns last time out. The Bulls are playing well and the Hornets are coming off an embarrassing loss so I expect Chicago to win and cover the 5 points.
