Defense is going to be the name of the game in Indianapolis on Sunday night, and every single point is going to be tough to come by. Having a man like C Joakim Noah playing as well on both sides of the court as he is right now is going to be key for the success of the Bulls in this game. Noah has had back-to-back 20+ point games, and he has recorded 31 boards and 16 blocked shots in that stretch as well. Now, he is going to be going up against C Roy Hibbert, which should be a great matchup to watch in the paint all night long. We really think that this is a statement game for Head Coach Tom Thibodeau and Co. Chicago knows that its back is up against the wall having to play for the second time in as many nights while the Pacers have been resting quietly at home in preparation for this one. We also know that Indiana has won six of its last seven games both SU and ATS, and all six of the victories have come by at least 11 points. However, when you look back at those six wins, you see one against Toronto, one against Charlotte, two against Detroit, and one against a Golden State team that was in the midst of a long East Coast swing. The only really credible win of the bunch came against the New York Knicks. We think that this is a game that is going to come down to the wire for sure, and we want the points on our side as a result.
Bulls @ Pacers Pick: Chicago Bulls +7
Bulls @ Pacers Prediction: Bulls 87 – Pacers 85
