The Atlanta Hawks are looking to bounce back from a miserable performance when they take on the Chicago Bulls at Phillips Arena on Saturday night. Atlanta was crushed 99-80 by the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, giving the Hawks their third loss in four games to drop their record to 15-9.
However, Larry Drew's club is still sitting pretty in third place in the Eastern Conference, only two and a half games behind the Miami Heat in the Southeast Division. The Hawks will have to rely on their depth and balanced scoring to get them out of their current funk along with some solid defense.
As for the Bulls, they're coming off a rousing 110-106 victory over the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden on Friday. Chicago was dominant, leading by 25 points in the third quarter as the Knicks got frustrated, leading to four ejections.
Chicago has been playing great in recent times, winners in nine of its last 12 games.
