Chicago Bulls Will Get Their Revenge Against Sacramento Kings

Chicago Bulls vs. Sacramento Kings

The Chicago Bulls will take on the Sacramento Kings tomorrow night at 8 p.m. EST. The last time both teams met up was on Feb. 3, with the Kings handing Chicago a devastating loss (99-70). Considering the embarrassing outcome of that game, where Chicago also ended with their worst shooting percentage in 11 years (28.2), the Bulls will make sure to get their revenge and prove who is the better team this time around.

The Bulls (36-29) are riding high on the winds of a vicious comeback, fueled primarily by the efforts of their star and team leader, Joakim Noah. This winning stretch has not gone unnoticed by others around the league, who now anticipate Chicago making an impact come this April.

The Kings are on the opposite end of the spectrum. Sacramento is stuck near the bottom of the Western Conference rankings (23-42) with no signs of even reaching the 8th playoff seed.

When it comes down to it, the Kings’ victory over the Bulls can be attributed to blind luck, more-so than skill. In addition to their near record-low field goal percentage, the Bulls also had to deal with the absence of Noah, who was ejected from the game for swearing at referees following a controversial foul call.

As with any game, the potential for an upset is always there, but based on the way they have been playing recently, the odds are in favor of the Bulls emerging out of this game victorious. They will make up for their embarrassing loss in what could turn into a blowout.
