The Chicago Bulls (40-11) may have Rip Hamilton back in the line up as they head to the A to take on the Atlanta Hawks (30-21).
The Chicago Bulls will take the court after a loss for the first time in 12 days, and though they wil be taking on the frequently pesky Atlanta Hawks, there may be some good news come game time. According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, Bulls shooting guard Richard Hamilton may be in the line up for Chicago.
The last time the Bulls were in Atlanta, they were run out of the building by the Hawks in a 109-94 defeat. The Bulls returned the favor in mid-February with a 90-79 victory, but that game featured an increasingly rare Derrick Rose sighting, and the reigning MVP is once again expected to watch his team from the sidelines.
After a four game winning streak (punctuated by a quadruple overtime victory over the Utah Jazz), the Hawks fell last night to the Milwaukee Bucks 108-101. Atlanta may still be feeling the effects of that marathon outing against the Jazz, and certainly the Bulls will take any advantage they can get as they look to avoid losing two games in a row for the first time this season.
Game date/time: Wednesday, March 28, 6:30 p.m. CT
Location: Phillips Arena, Atlanta, Ga.
