Through 3 Quarters
Only one more quarter stands between the Chicago Bulls and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Atlanta Hawks 104-87.
Chicago has been relying on center Nikola Vucevic, who has posted a double-double on 16 points and 16 boards, and shooting guard Zach LaVine, who has shot 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and has recorded 21 points and five dimes. This makes it three consecutive games in which Vucevic has had at least 15 rebounds.
Atlanta has been led by center Clint Capela, who so far has dropped a double-double on 18 points and 15 rebounds. Capela does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four.
the Hawks have lost 93% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this season, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know
The Chicago Bulls will finish 2021 at home by hosting the Atlanta Hawks at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at United Center. The Bulls are out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.
Atlanta is out to make up for these teams’ matchup on Monday. The stars were brightly shining for Chicago in a 130-118 win over Atlanta. Small forward DeMar DeRozan continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, posting a double-double on 35 points and ten dimes along with five boards.
Chicago is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (15-6), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Chicago’s victory lifted them to 21-10 while Atlanta’s defeat dropped them down to 15-18. If Chicago want to win, they will need to focus on stopping the Hawks’ point guard Trae Young, who had 29 points and nine assists, and small forward Cam Reddish, who shot 8-for-13 from beyond the arc and finished with 33 points. We’ll see whether or not they are up to the challenge.
