Dallas Mavericks vs. Chicago Bulls Saturday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

The Dallas Mavericks head to my home of Chi-town tonight to face off against the Chicago Bulls, but am not there myself because of the Holidays.

The news just keeps getting poopier for the Bulls doesn’t it? First Derrick Rose goes down to injury (again), and now Luol Deng is doubtful for this one. They are finding a bit of rhythm offensively though, and

“Chicago’s not a team that scores a lot of points and in that third quarter they scored 36,” coach Jason Kidd said after the latest game loss to the Bulls.

That tells you a little bit more about the Nets incompetence than the Bulls brilliance, but it is also a sign that coach Tom Thibbodeau is turning this into a squad that is not only a terror defensively, but they are beginning to find a way to get offensive rhythm. This one tips off at 8 PM EST, and if you were looking for the TV info then bam!

TV: FS-Southwest, CSN-Chicago, DTV: 665, 676, 757, 758

The line for this one (-2.5) is odd, because the Mavs are favored on the road. Would probably go with them on the over just because Deng is not playing, and he usually is near the top of the league in minutes played. Thanks as always for reading; will hit y’all with a little Prep Sports love later on and update you with all the big happenings in high level high school basketball.
