Denver Nuggets vs Chicago Bulls preview: Prediction, odds and more for 2023-24 NBA preseason

In the preseason, Chicago has left no doubt about its intentions following a disappointing 40-42 season that saw them miss the playoffs. Going up against the reigning champions, the Bulls orchestrated a remarkable turnaround after their preseason opener loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, where they fell short 105-102.

DeMar DeRozan led the charge with an impressive performance, scoring 19 points and grabbing 4 steals, while Zach LaVine found his rhythm in the latter part of the game. Despite a sluggish start from beyond the three-point line, where he went 1-of-5, LaVine had a substantial impact, contributing 17 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and an equal number of steals.

For the second game in a row, the Bulls have placed a strong emphasis on solid defense and translating it into offensive opportunities. Their willingness to take long-range shots has created additional room for DeRozan and LaVine to exploit, even when facing a more defensively capable Nuggets team.

The Chicago Bulls are now focused on their matchup at the Ball Center as they strive for back-to-back wins against the Nuggets on Sunday. In anticipation of this thrilling showdown, let’s examine the predictions and odds for what is shaping up to be another exciting contest.
