In a rematch of the highest scoring game of the season, two of the bottom-four squads of the East are clashing, when the third-worse Chicago Bulls (18-45), who have been playing much better lately and have lost only once in their last 6 games, are hosting the fourth-worse Atlanta Hawks (21-41), who want to bounce back after their latest defeat.

Chicago Bulls have a 18-45 record (29-33-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the East.

Atlanta Hawks have a 21-42 record (29-34 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 12th place of the East. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Bulls with a 161-168 score in quadruple overtime, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by John Collins with 19.5 ppg, adding a team high 9.5 boards per game. He is followed by Trae Young with 18.3 ppg and a team high 7.8 dimes per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Bulls lead the Hawks 2-1 wins with each team having won on the road. Bulls have a 7-24 home record, while the Hawks are 10-23 on the road. Hawks are better offensively, scoring 112.1 ppg to Bulls’ 104.8, while the Bulls are better defensively, allowing 112.4 ppg to Hawks’ 119.1. Both teams have almost identical field goal percentage (45.3% to 45.2%), while Bulls have a better 3-point percentage (35.7% to 35.1%). Bulls are better in turnovers committed (13.8 to 17.6), while Hawks are better both in boards grabbed (45.6 to 42.5) and in dimes made (25.5 to 22.2). Bulls have been hot lately and Vegas odds give them a -4 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home victory.
