5* NBA NO DOUBT BLOCKBUSTER BLOWOUT: Bulls -4
This may seem like a lot of points to lay on the Bulls without Derrick Rose in the lineup, but there is a much bigger factor in play tonight.
While teams were able to manage the compact schedule early in the season, it's really starting to take its toll. This will be the Hawks fifth game in the last 6 nights. They played three straight from 3/23-3/25 and now are in the second game of a back-to-back set after playing in Milwaukee last night.
At the same time, Chicago will be playing just their third game in the last seven days! The Bulls have shown they are more than capable of winning without Rose. They just suffered their worst home loss of the season on Monday, falling to Denver 91-108. Few teams bounce back as well as Chicago.
Look for the Bulls to come out with some serious intensity on the defensive end. The Hawks defense isn't going to be worth a lick. Chicago should be able to get a lot of easy baskets and wide open jump shots. BET THE BULLS!
