The Chicago Bulls are having an unforgettable season with 44 triumphs and 32 defeats so far. They have done a great job in the Eastern Conference and are the dark horses who can upset the favorites on their day in the postseason.

Their last outing was against the Washington Wizards where they registered their 44th win of the season by a 107-94 margin.
On the other hand, Los Angeles Clippers are sure shot projected to be one of the favorites to go all the way this time after a dismal season in 2020-21. They are currently in the 8th spot with 37 victories in addition to 39 losses but the only thing that has held them has been their inconsistency.
After losing five games on the trot against the likes of Cavaliers, Raptors, Nuggets, 76ers, and Jazz, the western conference side has finally managed to break the jinx with a win against Jazz in their last outing. Even after having winning momentum going into this contest, the side’s away record is not encouraging going into this match.
