CHICAGO: LAST SEASON: 27-55, missed playoffs.
COACH: Fred Hoiberg (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: Kris Dunn (13.4 ppg), G Zach LaVine (16.7 ppg), F Justin Holiday (12.2 ppg), F Jabari Parker (12.6 ppg, Milwaukee), C Robin Lopez (11.8 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Jerian Grant, G David Nwaba
KEY ADDITIONS: Parker, F Wendell Carter Jr., F Chandler Hutchison
PLAYERS TO WATCH: F Lauri Markkanen is expected to miss the first few weeks because of a high grade lateral elbow sprain he suffered in practice. From Finland, Markkanen, averaged 15.2 points and 7.5 rebounds in 68 games as a rookie last season. The Bulls are counting on LaVine to show he can be the cornerstone piece they envisioned when they acquired him along with Dunn and the rights to Markkanen from Minnesota for Jimmy Butler in the 2017 draft night trade. He was limited to 24 games last season, missing the first 42 while recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee and then sitting out the final 14 because of tendinitis in the same knee. That didn't stop Chicago from matching Sacramento's four-year, $80 million offer sheet for LaVine.
OUTLOOK: Though the Bulls hardly look like contenders in the Eastern Conference, the potential to make a jump is there. That hinges on improvement from Markkanen, LaVine and Dunn, Parker staying healthy and contributing, and maybe Carter chipping in after being drafted with the No. 7 overall pick.
LA CLIPPERS: LAST SEASON: 42-40, missed playoffs.
COACH: Doc Rivers (sixth season, 20th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F Tobias Harris (18.6 ppg), G Patrick Beverley (12.2 ppg), C Marcin Gortat (8.4 ppg, Washington), F Danilo Gallinari (15.3 ppg), G Avery Bradley (14.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C DeAndre Jordan, F Blake Griffin, G Austin Rivers
KEY ADDITIONS: Gortat, F Luc Mbah a Moute, F Mike Scott, G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, G Jerome Robinson
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Harris will look to build on the promise he showed after coming over in the Griffin trade. Gortat takes over from the departed Jordan in the middle. Beverley, Gallinari and Bradley have the most to prove since they missed big chunks of last season.
OUTLOOK: With Jordan, Griffin and Chris Paul cleared out, the Clippers lack a star player for the first time in years. This group's biggest priority will be to stay healthy after injuries decimated the roster last season and forced Rivers to start an NBA-leading 37 different lineups. Beverley has dubbed this team "Clamp City," saying the Clippers will hang their hat on defense. They face a tough start to the schedule, with 12 of their first 14 games against teams that made the playoffs last season.
Williams-led Clippers thriving as they host Bulls

As the Los Angeles Clippers inch toward a playoff spot, they'll continue to rely on their most veteran player, one who doesn't even start for the team.

Lou Williams will likely be at the center of attention when the Clippers host the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.

Williams recorded the only triple-double of his 14-year NBA career against the Bulls on Jan. 25, finishing with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the 106-101 victory.

His scoring average has increased each month this season, and Williams heads into Friday averaging 24.7 points in six games in March. On Monday in a 140-115 win against the Boston Celtics, he became the NBA's all-time highest-scoring reserve, passing Dell Curry (11,147) for No. 1.

Just as important to the team's surprising success this season has been his leadership on and off the floor.

"Everyone wants to hear what he's got to say, and when he's talking it's something important," Clippers center Ivica Zubac told the Orange County Register. "You know that's something that we need to work on or it's a problem. You know if he's saying it, everyone's going to listen to him."

Williams spent his first 10 NBA seasons in the Eastern Conference with the Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks and Toronto Raptors, so he's used to going up against the Bulls, whether they were winning 62 games in 2010-11, or stuck on 19 wins this season.

The Bulls have most recently lost five of six and are coming off a 123-107 setback against the Los Angeles Lakers after leading by as many as 20 points early in the second quarter.

Chicago is expected to have leading scorer Zach LaVine back against the Clippers, however.

LaVine practiced on Thursday in Chicago and is probable to play in Los Angeles after missing the past two games with a knee injury. LaVine, who played at UCLA, is averaging 23.8 points.

Some have suggested LaVine should sit out the rest of the season and rest his knee, but he shot down that idea after practice Thursday.

"That's just not who I am," he said. "That's not what I do. It's going to be good for the team. We can get our chemistry down, continue to play well, build things for next year."

The Bulls are also looking for a bounce-back performance from second-leading scorer Lauri Markkanen, who shot 4-for-17 from the floor against the Lakers, including 0-for-8 from 3-point range.

It's a slump that began with a 6-for-21 performance in a 123-118 loss to the Hawks on March 3, putting him at 34.4 percent from the floor, including 9-for-40 from 3-point distance, in the past six games.

"The one thing I love about Lauri is nobody takes it harder when he plays poorly than him," Chicago coach Jim Boylen told reporters. "He came in and went to work, which I love. That's what you do.

You don't work less when things are bad for you. You work more. And you figure it out."

Markkanen will likely be matched against veteran stretch forward Danilo Gallinari, who was rested in a 125-104 loss against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, a night after he scored 25 points in the win against Boston.
