LaMelo Ball is averaging a triple-double (22.7 points, 10.1 assists, 8.8 rebounds) and Miles Bridges is putting up 21.1 points per game, but they’ll need more contributions from role players to compete against the Bulls.

The Bulls (20-22) are roaring toward the playoffs thanks to a 5-1 stretch. Zach LaVine is back and firing on all cylinders, averaging 28.4 points per game in his last five appearances. DeMar DeRozan remains a consistent scoring threat (26.6 ppg) and Nikola Vucevic anchors the paint (12.1 ppg, 11.5 rpg).
