Charlotte Hornets vs Chicago Bulls NBA Picks and Predictions – 5/6/21

Hornets vs Bulls Preview and Prediction for Thursday, May 6, 2021

Big night for the Bulls, who are expected to get highlight-reel G Zach LaVine (27.5 ppg) back from health protocols in time vs. this visit to Michael Jordan’s Bee Hive. LaVine has missed eleven games, with Chicago losing eight of those (including four in a row) as its offense has bogged down in his absence, failing to touch the century mark in the past four games.

The Bulls didn’t need LaVine when they beat the Hornets at United Center on April 22, but Charlotte might have been even more depleted that night minus Gordon Hayward, LaMelo Ball, and Malik Monk (three of James Borrego’s top five scorers). Monk and Ball have returned to active duty, though a new injury concern is G Devonte’ Graham, who could miss a second straight game with knee soreness. Still, by this point, Borrego’s Hornets have learned to play thru the injuries as they have stayed afloat with SU wins in four of the last seven to apparently stay safely in the East postseason field (though, in the 8th slot, likely ticketed for the play-in round).

Chicago can only wish as much as the Bulls currently sit 12th in the East queue, and even with LaVine, Billy Donovan’s crew lacked consistency; after the trade deadline that landed Nikola Vecevic from Orlando, Chicago was only 3-8 SU before LaVine was shut down. Unless Zach is flying in his return, we would rather not rely upon the Bulls, rather trusting Charlotte’s extended “under” trend (22-8) instead.
