The Chicago Bulls will head to the Toyota Center to go up against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. Both teams are coming into the game on the back of disappointing losses in their previous encounters.

They will be looking for a positive result in this game, especially the Bulls, who are flying in the Eastern Conference.

The Chicago Bulls went into the previous game against the Indiana Pacers high on confidence. But the Pacers shocked the in-form Bulls team as they put on a clinical performance to give Chicago a blowout loss.

Domantas Sabonis secured a 21-point double-double to make things easier for the Pacers as they marched to a 109-77 win on the night.

Wasn’t our night. Off to Houston.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets lost yet another game, this time to the Celtics. Jayson Tatum scored 30 points on the night and clinched the W for Boston. The Rockets currently hold a dismal 1-16 record and are placed 15th in the Western Conference.
