Bulls vs. Clippers Game Preview and Open Thread

possible worst game of the season?

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

So this Bulls tilt is:

  • at 2:30 Central, so 12:30 local time after a night out in Los Angeles.
  • Missing both Lauri Markkannen and Kris Dunn.
  • Also missing the traded Nikola Mirotic, and the new guys aren’t available.
  • Against a firmly mediocre Clippers team that also traded their most productive player, though they got guys who can play in a rotation so they may stay...firmly mediocre.
  • A game that the Bulls as a franchise will want to lose, both to increase their own lottery odds yet also help the Clippers potentially bounce New Orleans from a Western Conference playoff seed.
  • A game that Fred Hoiberg doesn’t want to lose but also can’t help himself and will start Paul Zipser.
