This is game two of a four game series between the Hawks and Bulls, neither team is having much of a season and both have had to trade away some good players to stay afloat but in this game the Hawks will look to even out the score as they lost game one by seven points. Both of these teams used to thrive on their inside game as well as their attacking the basket style but because of trades and injuries they have reverted to three point shooting and that is where Atlanta´s Korver and Chicago´s Hinrich come into play, both of these players are snipers from behind that line.
The Hawks have fallen short after watching their star power forward in Josh Smith leave in free agency, they have tried a few different things but is seems they have problems with consistency. I think that this teams comes out with a different mind set in this game looking to really get the perimeter shooting going early. The Hawks have defend better in the paint and not give up so many offensive rebounds if they are goi9ng to be successful, point guard Teague needs to pull the defense out with his cutting ability and really be on target when he kicks the ball back out to the shooter.
Chicago is hurting, they are yet again without Rose, traded Deng and are seeing the rest of the guys moral falling to the floor. Noah was ejected and had to be forced off the court after an altercation with a referee and their praised defense has now turned to a scoring fest for opposing teams because they are trying to move with the ball and not their players. This team needs to really come together and make a stance on their home floor, defend the paint one play at a time, then rotate the ball, using all 24 seconds they have to get it were they want it to make the most out of their offense.
The Bulls win this game at home for the fans by 7+ points and I see it going under 200 points.
