Alright hoop heads, we’ve got a clash of the titans (or should we say, a bullfight in the forest?) coming your way tonight! The Portland Trail Blazers, who’ve been blazing trails to nowhere this season with a 19W-48L record, are saddling up for a Windy City showdown against the Chicago Bulls, who’ve been charging their way to a respectable 33W-35L. The Blazers are staggering in the West, a whopping 28 games back (we’ve seen comets closer), while the Bulls are just 11 games back in the East, still sniffing around the playoff pasture. Tonight’s battle takes place in the heart of Chi-town, at the United Center, with tipoff at 08:00PM EST. The bookies have the over/under at 213.5, and they’re favoring the Bulls at -7.5, while the Blazers are the underdogs at 7.5. The Bulls are still riding high from their 127-98 stampede over WAS, while the Blazers are nursing their wounds after a 107-126 tumble against NOP. So, buckle up folks, because tonight, we’ll find out if the Bulls can keep charging or if the Blazers can finally light a fire under their season!
