The Houston Rockets and the Chicago Bulls will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at United Center.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS (44-21): Houston had a streak of 18 consecutive games with 10 or more 3-pointers end in the loss to Utah, when it was just 8-of-32 from behind the arc. Star point guard James Harden scored 35 points for his third straight 30-point outing while recording a season-low six assists but neither him nor guard Patrick Beverley are concerned over back-to-back defeats. “Just because we lose two, that don’t mean nothing,” Beverley told reporters. “A lot of teams are scared of us and ain’t nothing changed with us. We still got the swag and we still got the confidence. Not to sound cocky, teams get afraid when we play them.”

ABOUT THE BULLS (31-33): Chicago played without shooting guard Dwyane Wade (quadriceps) in the loss to Orlando and hopes to have him back against the Rockets. Wade averaged just 11 points on 7-of-26 shooting over the past two games and the Bulls will be counting on his experience down the stretch, particularly after the dreadful outing against Orlando continued to display the issues on the team. “We have to find a way,” Chicago point guard Rajon Rondo told reporters. “It’s mental toughness. You can’t pick and choose when you want to turn it on and off. You have to come in with the right mindset.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockets listed as 6-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game’s total is sitting at 223½.

The Chicago Bulls aren’t clicking like a team headed to the postseason and look to halt a three-game losing streak when they host the Houston Rockets on Friday. Chicago dropped four of its last five games and slipped to two games below .500 with Wednesday’s 98-91 loss to the Orlando Magic.

The Bulls bumbled and stumbled through the road loss in Orlando and continue to claim it’s only a matter of time before they put things together. “Now we’ve got to go win some games that nobody thinks we can win,” All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler told reporters. “I think that’s the only way to go about it. Win the games we’re supposed to win at home, sneak some on the road.” Houston has scored 100 or more points in a franchise-record 51 consecutive games but defensive issues led to a 115-108 loss to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. The Rockets have dropped back-to-back games and stand three games ahead of the Jazz in the battle for third place in the Western Conference.

Chicago lost its last outing, a 98-91 result against the Magic on March 08. The Bulls failed to cover in that game as a +0-point underdog, while the 189 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

In their last action, Houston was a 115-108 loser at home against the Jazz. They failed to cover the -8.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (223) was profitable news for OVER bettors.
