How Oklahoma City Wins

Oklahoma City will win this game if they keep scoring the way they do. They average 105.8 points per game and that ranks 5th in the league. The Thunder must also win the rebound battle. They are averaging 52.7 rebounds per game and that ranks 11th in the league. The final thing they need to do is take care of the ball. They average 15.8 turnovers per game and that ranks 27th in the league.

 

How Chicago Wins

The Bulls will win this game if they keep playing great defense. They rank 1st in the league in opponent scoring as they only give up an average of 92.2 points per game. They will also need to find a way to score. The Bulls rank dead last in the league in scoring as they only average 93.4 points per game. The Bulls also need to keep their opponents field goal percentage down. Bulls opponents only shoot about 43.1%  during the game and that ranks 2nd in the league.

 

My Prediction

The Thunder want to make this a high coring back and forth game. While the Bulls want to make this a low scoring defensive game. Whichever team plays to their style will have the best chance in winning the game.

I think that the game is a high scoring game like the Thunder want. I think that Thunder will go on the road and beat the Chicago Bulls.

Final Score

Oklahoma City: 108
Chicago: 99
