Friday, April 9th the Chicago Bulls take on the Atlanta Hawks in the clubs’ second meeting of the season. The Hawks won the first contest at the beginning of the season on December 23rd 124-104.
The Bulls hold the all-time record between the squads with 132 victories in 246 meetings. Last season these clubs played three times with Chicago sweeping the series.
The Bulls extended their win streak to three in a row, benefitting from an injury-riddled Raptors club on Thursday that got an extra hit as players were suspended for their part in an altercation with the Lakers the night prior.

It meant Toronto had only eight players dressed and the Bulls took full advantage. No doubt Nikola Vucevic enjoyed the win more than any Bulls player after seasons of having issues, particularly against Toronto.
Vucevic scored 22 points with seven rebounds, four assists, and a steal. Zach LaVine also scored 22 points registering a double-double by adding 15 assists.
Lauri Markkanen (18), Coby White (15), Daniel Theis (14), Thaddeus Young (11), and Coby White (11) were the other double-digit contributors.
Garrett Temple (hamstring) and the trio of Daniel Theis, Devon Dotson, and Adam Mokoka are all not with the team. All four are listed as day-to-day.
Memphis ended the Hawks’ four-game win streak in their most recent contest as they tried to navigate missing four of their top five scorers.
Interim head coach noted the physicality of the Grizzlies offered an example of what the Hawks can expect when they play in the postseason.
Trae Young did his best to keep his squad afloat delivering a double-double of 14 points and 11 assists but was a team-worst minus -20.
All five starters reached double-digits with Bogdan Bogdanovic leading the scoring effort with 24 points connecting on half his 3-point attempts (4 of 8).
A commonality of the Hawks season has been how many injuries the club has dealt with. Entering this match they’ll be without four and possibly six players.
Clint Capella has a sore Achilles while Danilo Gallinari has an ankle injury with both questionable for Friday. John Collins suffered an ankle injury that will keep him out for up to 10 days.
De’Andre Hunter (knee) played two games after missing 21 but went right back on the injured list missing the past eight contests and is expected to miss another week of action.
Cam Reddish has missed 22 games with an Achilles injury and projected out until month-end. Kris Dunn has yet to make his Hawks debut following an ankle injury but is ramping up his activity.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
The Hawks have the rest advantage as the Bulls played Thursday. While the Hawks just completed a winning streak the Bulls have just started one and seem to have found a rhythm on both sides of the court.
Ultimately, the injuries for the Hawks will play a big factor particularly if Capela and Gallinari can’t play. This match feels like it could be a high-scoring affair and hit the over.
