The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Monday, Nov. 28 with a slate of 10 games, including an inter-conference meeting between the Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls. The Bulls have had some time to regroup after losing 123-119 in overtime to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, leaving time to tell whether the former bounces back or not.

Meanwhile, the Jazz have been in absolute disarray lately, dropping four straight games without starting point guard Mike Conley. Utah's latest loss was a close one, though, coming up short in Saturday's 113-112 road loss to the Phoenix Suns.

Jazz vs. Bulls Prediction & Pick

As mentioned before, the Jazz have lost each of their four games since Conley was sidelined with a leg injury. While Colin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson have taken over the playmaking duties, averaging 6.3 and 5.3 assists, respectively, over that span, neither player has Conley's defensive abilities.

Now, the Jazz get a hungry Bulls team that'd be on a three-game winning streak had overtime gone their way against the Thunder. Although winning on the road won't be easy for Chicago due to Utah being 6-2 at Vivint Arena this season, it's worth mentioning that both of those losses came within the Jazz's last three home games.

Until Conley returns, it's hard to believe that the Jazz can succeed. In the meantime, back the Bulls to win tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Bulls: 115 | Jazz: 112
