Detroit Pistons vs Chicago Bulls Prediction & Match Preview

Detroit Pistons vs Chicago Bulls Prediction & Match Preview – October 23rd, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22

After losing their first game of the season to the Chicago Bulls, the Detroit Pistons will travel to the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, to try to get revenge on the home team.

Dwane Casey’s team has been inactive since that loss to Billy Donovan’s charges and is expected to have resolved his deficiencies. The Detroit Pistons will continue to await the debut of this year’s No. 1 draft pick, Cade Cunningham, who is still suffering from an ankle injury.

Without the potential face of the Motor City franchise and after the Chicago Bulls’ win against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Pistons are likely to have their hands full in Saturday’s game.

After that surprisingly close game against the Detroit Pistons, Zach Lavine and the Chicago Bulls completely dominated the New Orleans Pelicans without Zion Williamson. In the second game of the season, the Bulls looked more fluid and were better defensively, taking the fight away from the Pelicans early.

The renewed Chicago Bulls will only get better, which will be bad news for the Detroit Pistons.

Chicago Bulls preview

The team that NBA general managers consider the most improved team in the league is proving the predictions correct so far. Zach LaVine looks revitalized as he plays on a vastly revamped squad. Even more sinister for rival teams is the way new acquisitions are starting to mesh with old members.

In that game against the Pelicans, DeMar DeRozan showed the form that made him a multi-All-Star player with 26 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. His association with LaVine is already beginning to blossom in just two regular-season games.

Lonzo Ball had a triple-double in the Chicago Bulls’ home opener. He was as good as advertised. The former second overall pick in the 2017 draft led the plays efficiently for the Bulls and was a plague on the defense with his length and anticipation. The more comfortable you are with Billy Donovan’s schemes, the better he will play in the future.

Detroit Pistons Preview

In their first game of the season against the Chicago Bulls, the Detroit Pistons did not have enough firepower to secure a victory. Outside of Jerami Grant, virtually everyone fought for the Pistons.

However, Saddiq Bey had an encouraging and solid play with 13 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists.

Dwane Casey’s team will have to play better to avoid being ruined early in the game.

Pistons vs Bulls match prediction

The Detroit Pistons don’t have their first pick and future franchise cornerstone Cade Cunningham. This is a very well-trained team that works hard on both ends of the court. However, Jerami Grant appears to be an island on the offensive at the moment.

Detroit’s offense is pretty predictable, and Billy Donovan should be able to make adjustments from the last time they met. Dwane Casey will be happy with Kelly Olynyk’s return, but he would need a lot more of his potentially explosive young troops to make the team competitive.

The Chicago Bulls will be eager to show that their close win against the Detroit Pistons a few days ago was no fluke. With a rowdy home crowd and an ever-improving core of Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball, and Nikola Vucevic, the Bulls should extend their winning streak to three games.
