Alright hoop heads, we’ve got a barn burner on our hands tonight! The mighty Pacers, boasting a 41-32 record, are saddling up and stampeding over to the Windy City to lock horns with the Bulls, who are currently sitting at a less-than-stellar 34-38. The action is going down at the United Center, with the ball set to hit the hardwood at 8PM sharp. Now, while the Pacers are only 5.5 games behind in the Eastern conference, the Bulls are trailing a whopping 12 games back. But don’t let that fool you – this ain’t no walk in the park for Indiana. The bookies have set the over/under at 235.5, with the Pacers just barely edging out the Bulls at -2.5. The Bulls are licking their wounds after a narrow loss against the Wizards, while the Pacers are riding high on a win over the Clippers. So, buckle up folks, because when these teams get charged, it’s gonna be a real ‘Bull-et’ of a game!
