The New Orleans Pelicans, who are 6-10 on the road so far this year, will be visiting the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.
The Pelicans found a way to win both of their games against the Bulls during the 2013-14 season. They had one of the most exciting games of the season last year when New Orleans was able to pull off a 131-128 triple-overtime win in Chicago.
The Pelicans have scored over 100 points per game this season, but they have given up more points than they have scored. Superstar power forward Anthony Davis has averaged 19.5 points per game against the Bulls with nine rebounds per game, while Ryan Anderson has been able to average 10.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game against them in 16 career games.
On Thursday, the Bulls won their fifth game in a row when they blew out the Los Angeles Lakers 113-93 in Chicago. They had a huge 57-39 rebounding advantage in that win and were able to hold the Lakers to a low 39.1 field goal percentage.
The Bulls are currently in the top half of the league in most statistical categories, and they are near the top of the NBA in rebounding. Veteran big man Pau Gasol is having a good first season in Chicago by averaging 18.2 points and 11.5 rebounds per game while making 48.1 percent of his shots.
