Odds as of April 17.

More Shots for Vucevic

Bulls leading scorer Zach LaVine will miss his second straight game because of the NBAโ€™s health and safety protocols when Chicago hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers. LaVine is sixth in the NBA in scoring with a 27.5 average.

With LaVine out, it seems logical that more of the scoring load will fall on Nikola Vucevic.

The Bulls have gone just 3-9 since acquiring Vucevic from the Orlando Magic at the March 25 trade deadline. However, that has not been because of he the veteran center, who has averaged 22.6 points and 10.3 rebounds a game since arriving in Chicago.

Vucevic has been consistent for the Bulls, scoring at least 21 points in nine of 12 games. Overall, he has had 20-point efforts in 41 of 56 games this season.

The Cavaliers rank 20th in the league in defensive rating. Thus, they do not figure to offer much resistance to Vucevic, who is in line for more shots with LaVine sidelined.

  • Pick: Nikola Vucevic over 24.5 points (-110)

Tatum Looks to Bounce Back

The Boston Celtics are one of the NBAโ€™s hottest teams as they carry a five-game winning streak into their home matchup against the Golden State Warriors. The Celtics have won seven of their last eight games.

Thursday night, the Celtics beat the Los Angeles Lakers on the road despite an off night by Jayson Tatum. He was held to 14 points, his fourth-lowest total of the season.

However, Tatum has been excellent over the last three-plus weeks. In his last 13 games, he is averaging 27.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists.

Tatum has also scored at least 20 points in 11 games during that span. He dropped a career-high 53 on the Minnesota Timberwolves on April 9.

The Warriors are ninth in defensive rating but look for Tatum to bounce back with a big scoring effort following his subpar performance in LA.

  • Pick: Jayson Tatum over 25.5 (-116)
