What to know about the Hawks
The Hawks are out to make up for these teams’ contest on Monday. The stars were brightly shining for the Bulls in a 130-118 victory over Atlanta, despite Cam Reddish dropping 33 points and Trae Young posting 29 points and nine assists. Chaundee Brown Jr., who had just signed with Atlanta earlier in the day, struggled in his team debut as despite starting and logging 30 minutes, he scored just four points.
A reason why the Hawks started a guy they had just signed hours earlier is because the team has been impacted by COVID like no other. Atlanta has an NBA-high 13 players in health and safety protocols, including John Collins, Kevin Huerter, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari. Of the Hawks’ nine top scorers, only three will be available for Wednesday’s game.
What to know about the Bulls
Chicago’s win lifted it to 21-10 and small forward DeMar DeRozan was the catalyst, dropping a double-double on 35 points and 10 assists in addition to five boards. Zach LaVine added 30 points while center Nikola Vucevic had a crazy stat line with 24 points, 17 rebounds, six assists and four blocks. The Bulls, who rank 29th in the NBA in three-point attempts, made a season-high of 18 shots beyond the arc on 37 attempts.
Chicago will be without Lonzo Ball (protocols) and Alex Caruso (foot), while Derrick Jones Jr. is questionable with a hamstring strain. The Bulls are currently on their third four-game winning streak but neither of the previous two ever reached five games. Look for the team to rely on its balance on both ends of the floor as Chicago ranks among the top 10 both in offensive efficiency (112.0) and defensive efficiency (108.5).
