Reeling Chicago visits San Antonio

Reeling Chicago visits San Antonio

Dwayne Wade finds himself embroiled in a nasty slump at the moment. But can the NBA’s resident king on Christmas Day turn things around in time for this afternoon’s Bulls-Spurs tilt?

The two combatants square off in the Lone Star State at 5 p.m. ET. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives Gregg Popovich’s group odds of -400 to handle its business at home. Conversely, Chicago represents a +300 underdog.

With Kobe Bryant retired, Wade leads active players in both games played (11) and points (277) on Dec. 25. Nonetheless, the Marquette product hasn’t exactly been feeling the Yuletide spirit. He’s shooting just 38 percent from the field over the past four contests, with the Bulls dropping three of those affairs.

Meanwhile, San Antonio continues to dominate the Southwest Division. Most recently, Kawhi Leonard & Co. hammered Portland 110-90. Patty Mills complemented the reigning Defensive Player of the Year’s 33 points with 23 of his own. LaMarcus Aldridge added his fifth double-double of the season.

Chicago fans should take heart in the knowledge that Wade and his crew edged the Spurs earlier in the month. Rajon Rondo, in fact, narrowly missed recording a triple-double in that 95-91 triumph. Considering the hosts’ 8-4 mark at the AT&T Center, though, we’re talking about an entirely different scenario here. Bank on blowout.
