What to Know

The Chicago Bulls haven’t won a game against the Indiana Pacers since Dec. 29 of 2017, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Friday. Chicago and Indiana will face off in a Central Division battle at 8 p.m. ET at United Center. Each game has meant fewer and fewer points for the Bulls in their past four games, so the Pacers might be catching them at a good time.

It was a hard-fought contest, but Chicago had to settle for a 115-108 loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. Chicago’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of point guard Coby White, who had 26 points and six assists, and point guard Shaquille Harrison, who had 17 points.

Meanwhile, the matchup between Indiana and the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday was not a total blowout, but with Indiana falling 119-100 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. Small forward T.J. Warren (18 points) and small forward Doug McDermott (16 points) were the top scorers for Indiana.

The losses put the Bulls at 21-41 and Indiana at 37-25. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Chicago comes into the contest boasting the most steals per game in the league at 9.98. But Indiana ranks first in the league when it comes to steals given up per game, with only 6.7 on average. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
