The Bulls and Hawks are two of the best teams so far this season in the Eastern Conference. Both the Bulls and Hawks are 4-1 this season and will face off for the first time this season at the United Center Tuesday Evening.
The Bulls enter Tuesday's game with Atlanta a little banged up. Richard Hamilton is questionable with a sore groin while C.J. Watson is out with a sprained elbow. John Lucas should get some minutes at backup point guard with Watson out of the lineup.
Former Bull Kirk Hinrich is expected to miss the game for the Hawks.
The Bulls were 2-1 against the Hawks last season and also eliminated Atlanta in the second round of the playoffs.
The Hawks are led on offense by Joe Johnson who is averaging 16.3 points per game. Derrick Rose leads the Bulls with a 19.8 PPG average.
Tuesday's game is scheduled to start at 7:00. The game will be televised on CSN.
