Chicago Bulls vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

Friday night basketball is fun and we've got some this evening.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks get together on the basketball court on Friday night. While Chicago has the best player on the floor in Jimmy Butler, Atlanta enters as a solid favorite when it comes to the smart folks in Las Vegas and, aside from a hiccup on Wednesday in Detroit, the Hawks are playing (much) better basketball than the Bulls at this moment. Still, nothing is assured and it should be a fun night at Philips Arena.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
