Bulls vs. Kings NBA Predictions: Will Chicago Cover Point Spread? 2/5/18

Kings Vs Bulls Preview Starting Lineups TV Time Injuries 02/05/2018

Reuters/Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsChicago Bulls center Robin Lopez (42) looks to shoot against Milwaukee Bucks forward John Henson (31) during the third quarter at BMO Harris Bradley Center, Dec. 26, 2017.

Lopez had some time to contemplate trade rumors after getting ejected with 4 minutes, 21 seconds left in the first half for drawing consecutive technicals. He was seemingly going out of his way to earn a technical foul call from the officials and, once the veteran big man landed one, things escalated with haste.

Will the Chicago Bulls cover the point spread tonight in Sacramento where they'll visit the Kings at 10:00 p.m. ET? The Kings have scored fewer than 100 points 29 times this season, which is most in the National Basketball Association.

After Zach LaVine's follow shot tied it at 93 with less than 4 minutes left, Sacramento's Buddy Hield and Chicago's Bobby Portis exchanged 3-pointers. As a result, the Bulls had a ten-point lead before the Kings finally scored which eventually led to a 28-9 deficit for the good guys after one.

The Kings were able to survive this game despite having an abysmal first quarter. But coach Fred Hoiberg still made it a point to talk with Lopez before the game, just to make sure his head was in the right place.


The Kings showed up in the second half.

In their four previous home losses during the streak, the Kings have surrendered 52.9 percent shooting while allowing 116.8 points per game. The only Kings to finish in the top two of the National Basketball Association in three-point percentage were Jim Les in 1990-91 (first) and Anthony Peeler in 2003-04 (first). Coach Fred Hoiberg said Dunn is feeling better and is making progress from the concussion he suffered against Golden State on January 17.

Kings: Rookie De'Aaron Fox limped off the court after scoring as part of Sacramento's 19-6 run in the third. Unable to calm his temper, Lopez saw a chair looking at him amusing and did what National Basketball Association players have wanted to do to referees all season long by heaving it down the the tunnel. Lopez wasn't happy about some of the calls. I was a little bit surprised.

Bulls: Return to Chicago to host Minnesota on Friday.
