As the story goes, this game should go fairly similar to the one against the Cleveland Cavaliers just days before. The Oklahoma City Thunder are doing the exact opposite of what the Chicago Bulls are doing. The team made two of the biggest trades in recent NBA memory when they traded for both Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. When the team traded Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis for PG13, many were questioning why the Pacers would take such an awful deal? Sam Presti must have brainwashed the Pacers front office.

Given the Thunders’ star power, this should be an easy game for Oklahoma City. The starters may end being out of the game by the 4th quarter as this competition has blow out potential written all over it.

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma City 119 – Chicago 91

Scoring Leaders: Russell Westbrook: 34, Nikola Mirotic: 15

Rebound Leaders: Russell Westbrook: 11, Robin Lopez: 7

Assist Leaders: Russell Westbrook: 15, Justin Holliday: 6

With the Chicago Bulls intent on tanking this season away in the hopes of getting Marvin Bagley or Luka Doncic next summer, don’t expect many wins from the team this year. By my predictions, the team will only win 1 game in the month of October, and that win comes against the lowly Atlanta Hawks. A win may be a win in the stat book, but that doesn’t mean it is a good win. What do you think of the Chicago Bulls October schedule? Do you have any other predictions?
