Why the Bulls can cover

Forward DeMar DeRozan gives Chicago a reliable scorer. The USC product logs 23.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. In Thursday’s win over the Warriors, DeRozan tallied 33 points, eight rebounds and four assists. He scored 30-plus points in two of his last three games.

Guard Coby White is an agile playmaker in the backcourt. White has a jumper to space out the floor but will get into the lane with ease. The 24-year-old is averaging 19.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. He’s scored 20-plus points in four straight games. On Mar. 4, White racked up 37 points, five rebounds and seven assists. See who to back at SportsLine

Why the Clippers can cover

Los Angeles has injury concerns with Westbrook out and their top three scorers — Leonard, George and Harden — all listed as questionable. However, the Clippers have been tough all season with a 40-21 overall record. They also have a 26-22 ATS mark when favored. 

Additionally, L.A. has won three out of its last four and has shown the ability to play different styles. For example, the Clippers won an 89-88 slugfest at Minnesota on March 3, but also have wins in high-scoring games against the Rockets and Wizards this month. With their stars’ status in doubt, Norman Powell is one source of offense the Clippers can feel good about. He scored 24 points and hit 6 of 8 from 3-point territory in the aforementioned win over the TimberwolvesSee who to back at SportsLine
