The Golden State Warriors are having one of the best seasons in NBA history and they’ll try to score another victory when they face the Chicago Bulls on Jan. 20. But will Chicago pull off an upset? HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this game so click to watch!
Steph Curry, 27, and his Golden State Warriors are on a historic roll. But Jimmy Butler, 26, and the Chicago Bulls aren’t going to lay down when the Warriors pull into Chi-Town. Do the Bulls finally have Golden State’s number or will Steph’s squad simply blow the Windy City team away?
The game on Jan. 20 will be the second and final regular season match between Chicago and Golden State. It could also possibly be a preview of the 2016-17 NBA finals. The Warriors have suffered some recent losses, so they want to end their three-game road trip with a win. The game starts at 8 p.m. EST so be ready to see every exciting moment!
These two teams met previously on Nov. 20 and Golden State walked away with a 106-94 victory, according to NBA.com. This time, the Warriors are on the Bulls’ home turf and that might give Chicago the motivation to upset the dominant Golden State.
The Bulls have a reason to think they can beat the best team in the league. Within the span of three days, the Warriors suffered two rare defeats: first to the Denver Nuggets on Jan. 13, 112-110; then, the Detroit Pistons nearly blew them out on Jan. 16, 113-95. Steph and his team rebounded from the losses by obliterating LeBron James, 31, and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Jan. 18, beating them 132-98.
Steph totally embarrassed LeBron in that game. Will he be able to do the same to Jimmy Butler? The Bulls’ star player put up 40 points when they faced the Toronto Raptors on Jan. 13, according to Deadspin, and he topped that mind-blowing performance by scoring 53 points against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Bulls have held Steph to 6-of-25 shooting from the 3-point range in the past two seasons, according to ESPN, and they’ll have to work hard to block the best shooter in the game. Still, after wiping the floor with the Cavs, will the Warriors easily tear down the House that Michael Jordan built?
There’s one way to find out, HollywoodLifers. Who are you rooting for in this game?
