After splitting the first two games, the series would continue at the United Center for Game 3.
This has largely come from their lack of offensive production being one of the least productive teams in the league on that end of the floor. Chicago is currently 29th with 101.4 points per contest along with being 25th shooting 44.5 percent from the floor and 17th shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc. Throughout the 2018-19 season, the Bulls have struggled mightily to find any level of consistency on the court. They have struggled to put together any encouraging stretch in the season that hasonly seen them fall further away from the playoff picture currently going through a tough stretch of the year having dropped eight out of their last 10 contests thathave made them one of four teams this year have already lost 40 games. This has seen them fall down toward holding one of the worst records in the league.

All-Star guard Kemba Walker was limited to 26 minutes on Sunday as Charlotte expanded the minutes down the roster, allowing Stone and Monk to get more of an opportunity. Center Willy Hernangomez picked up some extra minutes at the expense of veteran Dwight Howard and responded with 15 points and 11 rebounds in 22 minutes. While Stone made his presence felt on the defensive end, Monk contributed on the other side of the floor by scoring 16 points and burying four 3-pointers in 24 minutes.
If the Hornets shoot better than they did on Wednesday and do a better job on the boards, they should be able to get the win over the Bulls.
Two of the four games played between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder have been determined by at least 10 points, hence the large spread. Though one of those contests, Game 4, only saw the game get away from the losing side, San Antonio, late in the fourth quarter, Game 5 could be a bit differentbecause its the Spurs who are playing at home.

It wont be the same without him going forward but what an incredible career. Although, Im not sure if it will ever happen considering that there arent any current statues outside of the Spectrum Center. Steve will be recognized at halftime of the teams final home game. I dont think its crazy to suggest that Martin is deserving of a statue outside of the arena just like Chick Hearn got for the Los Angeles Lakers in frontof the Staples Center.
The Charlotte Hornets look to have a bounce-back game at home, following a tough loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
So, one can certainly expect this game to be a fast-paced, high-scoring matchup amongst teams that will have aspirations of meeting later in the season for the Western Conference crown. As stated, James Harden did not suit up in their last meeting vs Golden State. With that being said, it is for this reason that there will be many who will pick the Rockets to pull away with yet another victory over the defending champs. I will not be one of those as I believe that Golden State will bounce back from a horrible set of outings recently in which to pick up a much-needed, confidence-building victory on Wednesday night. Again, each of the big three had big games for Golden State in their last outing versus Houston.
In their season opener on October 29, the Bulls defeated the rival New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Winning in a 10480 blowout, Taj Gibson was the leading scorer with 22 points. In Week 1 of Scott Howard-Cooper's "Rookie Ladder", Miroti and McDermott were ranked numbers six and eight respectively. On October 31, before their Halloween game, the Bulls were unable to deal a new contract with Butler before the deadline, which would make him a restricted free agent during the 2015 off-season. That night, Chicago's home opener would enter overtime, where the Bulls lost 108114. During the game, Gibson faced an injury scare, while Rose left the court in the fourth quarter due to a sprained left ankle. Entering November having split the first pair of games, Chicago played the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center.
Looking at Chicago, they have lost their last four games by an average of 15 points. The only problem for the Hornets is that they havent had success versus the Bulls this season (0-2) and are still looking for their first win against the Windy City team. Charlottes the hottest team in the Eastern Conference as they are riding a four-game win streak heading into this game.
The Hornets will win the first half of this game because they are averaging 57.3 points in the first half of their last three games, and will be facing a defense that has given up 59.2 points in the first half this season.
They are playing their best stretch of basketball so far this year while the Bulls are looking to tank for a better draft pick. Still, I think Kemba Walker and the Hornets will do enough to get the victory at home. Dating back to last season, Charlottes lost four straight regular-season games to Chicago.
