Charlotte Bobcats vs Chicago Bulls: Game 55 preview

The Charlotte Bobcats have just 13 wins all year. One of them was a double-digit win in Chicago over the Bulls.

Of course, one of their 41 losses came at the hands of the Bulls, too.

The ‘Cats don’t have to worry about putting up with Derrick Rose; Despite participating in 5-on-5 drills recently, he’s still not that close to a return.

Kemba Walker, who’s averaging 17.4 points and almost six assists per game will lead Charlotte’s attack.

He’s averaged 18 points and six assists against the Bulls this season, and he’s coming off two straight 20+ point games.

Byron Mullens has also been hot lately.

He’s averaged almost 18 points and nine rebounds in the past 10 games.

On defense, the ‘Cats will have to lock down on Luol Deng, and contain Joakim Noah.

While not an explosive scoring, Deng is a solid player and an All Star. He can put the ball through the rim when it counts.

Noah isn’t the best offensive player either, but he too is an All Star and has the ability to take over games with his rebounding and defense. He’s also one of the best passing big men in the league.

If Charlotte wins, it will be their second victory in three games.
