Chicago Bulls vs. Atlanta Hawks
The Bulls managed to control the game until the final buzzer to seal their victory.
The Chicago Bulls visits the Atlanta Hawks with a mission and that is to win the game because they are one of the teams at the bottom of the Eastern Conference division team standings. Currently, they have a 23-43 record and are in a brink of elimination at the ongoing NBA season.
As expected, newly acquired Zach LaVine led the team in scoring with 21 points, Bobby Portis had 21 points as well, Lauri Markkanen added 19 points, Antonio Blakeney scored 14, Kris Dunn added 13 points and Denzel Valentine with 12 points for the game.
They played with a balance offense and good ball rotations.
The Atlanta Hawks on the other hand are at the bottom of the team standings with a current record of 20-47. Taurean Prince led the team with 38 big points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and a block shot. He got a decent support from Mike Muscala with 19 points, John Collins added 15 and Dewayne Dedmon scored 10 points.
The Chicago Bulls will be playing against the L.A. Clippers on Tuesday at the Staple Center in California. The Oklahoma City Thunder will host the visiting Atlanta Hawks on the same day.
