Thursday, February 20, 2020 8:00PM ET at United Center, 1901 W Madison Street, Chicago.
After a long series of defeats, Charlotte was able to win in the last two games. On February 20th, the team travels to Chicago to visit, where hosts has already lost 6 games in a row. Will Hornets be able to extend their streak of wins, or will the Bulls break off a streak of losses? Read in our match preview.
The Hornets were not far behind their rival, while they began to take shape. The team of James Borrego seems to be ready to fight for the eighth line, but on the other hand one desire is not enough.
Charlotte scored two victories in a row, as they managed to beat Detroit 87-76 and then defeated Minnesota 108-115. The Hornets operate at their usual level and are not particularly surprising, therefore the result fully reflects the situation in the club. The next meeting promises to come out of the light, though there are chances for an equal fight.
The Bulls are in recession, so the break should at least somehow affect the situation. The team seems to have assembled quite well, but something is always missing, although the club has clung to the middle of the Eastern Conference standings and is not going to fall below.
Recall that the wards of Jim Boylen can not win for six games, though there was a good opportunity to get closer to the playoff zone. There is still time, so Chicago needs to gather strength, although injuries prevent the team from showing really good and well-coordinated basketball.

Expert Pick and Prediction
Chicago has something to prove, especially after six defeats in a row, but you should not write off Charlotte, because the team of James Borrego is clearly not worse than the opponent, so no matter how you say it, it’s hard to call the clear favorite of the hosts.
