The Atlanta Hawks will try to get revenge on the Chicago Bulls and even up the season series at 1-1 Wednesday night. Last Monday, the Bulls won the first matchup of the season series in Atlanta, 130-118. Chicago at home this season is 11-4. Atlanta on the road is 7-9.

Keys for Bulls Getting Win

Guard The Pick-And-Roll

Chicago had no answers for the Trae Young-Clint Capela pick-and-roll action. That was the main reason behind the Hawks taking an early eight-point. With no Lonzo ball and Alex Caruso tonight, they must be ready to guard Young and Vucevic. Vucevic must be more active if they want to get their second against Atlanta within three days.

Force Tough Shots

Atlanta is entering Wednesday night as tied for the best team in the NBA, shooting at 37.9%, but the good news for the Bulls is the Hawks are only 15th best in the NBA with 12.3 threes made per game. Last Monday, the Bulls allowed the Hawks to shoot 44.1% from the three-point line. That includes 12 three’s combined of Cam Reddish and Trae Young. If the Bulls want to keep the Hawks cold, play tough and physical defense.

Game Prediction

If the Hawks want any kind of revenge on the Bulls, they must stop Lavine and DeRozan, and that won’t happen Wednesday night. After tonight, Chicago will get another home victory and be the 2nd best team in the eastern conference. One player to look out for from Chicago is Coby White.
