Don't Lose Focus vs. Struggling Team
The Chicago Bulls have collectively shocked the basketball world this season, rushing out to a 12-5 record and 1st place spot with a team many critics felt wouldn't fit together.
Chicago has managed to be so effective by pairing a relentless perimeter defense predicated on speed with a pair of dominant, yet unselfish isolation scorers in Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan.
Indiana is a proud team that is perhaps a bit better than their record would indicate. They are 2-9 on the road but can definitely grind down a Bulls team that rebounds bu committee. If the Bulls can keep their focus and not let the Pacers force them out of their play style, a win is well within their reach on Monday night.
