Dejounte Murray became the first player to record at least 30 points and 10 assists with one or fewer turnovers in consecutive games in San Antonio's victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday. He finished with 31 points, 12 assists, and seven boards in the 124-114 victory.
The Chicago Bulls defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 106-101 on Saturday, bringing their record to 36-21 after their third straight win. DeMar DeRozan poured in a masterful 38 points in the contest, his sixth straight game scoring 30 or more.
The Spurs have won the last three meetings, including a 131-122 win in DeMar's return to San Antonio on January 28th.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Bulls Prediction
The key to success for the Spurs in most of their wins has been shooting lights out from beyond the arc or at least keeping the margins close in that department. The good news is Chicago ranks just 24th in made threes and last in attempts. The bad news is they're second in percentage from three with a 37.5% mark.
You would think that an instance where the Bulls will be missing three of their top five players should be an easy victory for San Antonio, but I've been burned way too many times this season by favoring them in this exact scenario. I'm going with Chicago in this one even if it's mostly to avoid yet another jinx.
Bulls 116, Spurs 111
Opponent Role Player to Watch: The Bulls will be short Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and Zach LaVine, in this one. I expect rookie Ayo Dosunmu to continue impressing in their absence after having a decent game against the Spurs in the first meeting.
