Chicago Bulls – Atlanta Hawks 20.2.12
Chicago played the worst game of the season against Nets and will look to bounce back tonight! In that game they had no energy, no focus, they simply weren’t ready to play as the Nets took a 22-3 lead, and the Bulls never managed to get closer than 7 the rest of the way.
This kind of performance is just not acceptable in Chicago, and can’t see anything else but a great effort tonight against the Hawks. That’s just how the DNA of this team is. When they have a bad game, they come out in the next one with a bang! Since Thibodeau took over as a coach before 10/11 season, Bulls have never lost in a bounce back spot at home, and most of the time those were blow-out wins. And this time they are not only playing after a loss, but after a real embarrassing home loss against a lowly team.
Match: Chicago Bulls – Atlanta Hawks
Tip: Chicago AH (-10.00)
Atlanta will play the 4th game of their 5-game road trip, where they haven’t looked very good so far. Overall they’ve lost 6 of their last 9 games by an average margin of 14.5 points, and it probably doesn’t help them that Mc Grady started to complain about lack of his playing time after a loss at Portland.
Atlanta hasn’t been good this season against top teams as they are only 3-9 SU and 4-8 ATS as an underdog! But one of those rare wins happened against Chicago (109-94). Chicago was in a bad spot in that game, and for Atlanta it was a big revenge game. They came out with a great effort and Chicago was blown out. Today, Chicago will be the team with revenge in addition to having a bounce back. Take the Bulls including the huge 10 points. Good luck!
