What to watch
1. Does Jimmer get a shot against his former team?
Things haven’t exactly gone as planned for Jimmer with his new team. After asking for and receiving a buyout from the Kings, the third-year guard out of BYU has played a total of 17 minutes over the Bulls last seven games, including three DNP-CDs. He’s averaging just three points per game for Chicago in his limited minutes. Will coach Tom Thibodeau give Jimmer a shot to stick it to his old team?
2. DeMarcus Cousins vs. his 16th technical
Cousins has been on his best behavior since picking up his 15th technical and suspension back on February 28. Seven games isn’t an NBA record, but for Cousins, it’s a good stretch. With notorious nemesis Mike Dunleavy ready to crawl under his skin, Cousins is facing a true test tonight in Chicago. Can he keep his composure or will he let the agitator win?
3. Can the Kings post a .500 road trip?
It’s been an up and down season for Sacramento, but there is still an outside chance that they can come home with a winning record on their season-long seven game road trip. Standing in their way are the formidable Bulls, who currently own the fourth best record in the eastern conference.
