Atlanta Hawks vs. Chicago Bulls game thread

Saturday night hoops are here.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks put a sudden two-game winning streak on the line on Saturday evening as they travel to the Midwest to take on the Chicago Bulls. Chicago, fresh off a TNT victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, remains in the mix for the No.8 and final playoff spot in the East. With that as the backdrop, this should be a fun and competitive game, even as Atlanta enters in shorthanded fashion once again.

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