Phoenix Suns vs Chicago Bulls Match Preview

The Chicago Bulls are suffering through their longest losing streak of the season, a seven-game slide they'll try to snap Saturday against Phoenix. The Bulls came out of the All-Star break with a 103-93 loss to Charlotte on Thursday in the opener of a four-game homestand.

Thaddeus Young scored a season-high 22 points and hauled in 11 rebounds in the loss as injury-riddled Chicago was unable to survive with just nine available players. "We have definitely made progress defensively with our system and in what we do this season," coach Jim Boylen told reporters Friday at practice. "That has been hijacked a little bit by injuries, but we're still a good, hard-playing defensive team. We've improved our running game. ... Even though we're on a losing streak, we're still playing hard, aggressive basketball." The Suns opened a three-game road trip with a 118-101 loss at Toronto on Friday. Phoenix made 6-of-34 3-pointers while losing its fifth in a row on the road.

The fans at United Center will be treated to a game between the Phoenix Suns and the Chicago Bulls when they take their seats on Saturday.

Oddsmakers opened the Suns as -1-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game's total opened at 220.

Last time out for Chicago, they were a 103-93 loser as they battled the Hornets at home. The Bulls failed to cover in the match as a -4-point favorite, while 196 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Suns were a 118-101 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Raptors. They failed to cover the +8-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (219) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Chicago Bulls vs Phoenix Suns

ABOUT THE SUNS (22-34): All-Star guard Devin Booker scored 21 points while handing out eight assists in 34 turnover-free minutes Friday night, but he had a minus-24 rating, easily the worst on the team. Center Deandre Ayton chipped in 17 points and 10 rebounds in his first game back from an ankle injury that cost him two games. Forward Kelly Oubre Jr. continued a shooting slump that began in the final three contests before the break, as the 24-year-old is 6-of-27 from long range over a four-game stretch.

ABOUT THE BULLS (19-37): Defense was the primary issue in the six straight losses prior to the All-Star break as Chicago gave up an average of 124.3 points per game, and the offensive attack was lacking in the loss to the Hornets. Guard Zach LaVine, the team's leading scorer at 25.2 points per game, finished with 19 points while making 1-of-7 3-pointers against the Hornets after scoring a total of 73 while hitting 13-of-21 from beyond the arc in the two games prior to the break. "We have a lot of season left," LaVine told reporters after the loss. "You've got to stay locked in. This is our job. This is a dream job. This is something that millions of people wish they could do - good or bad. It's a tough situation. Nobody likes being in a losing situation. But you get to see who's fighting with you and who's not. Go out there and battle."
