FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY: Chicago -3.5, 182 o/u

PREVIOUSLY...the Chicago Bulls beat the Wizards (presumably reeling from the loss of Mike Bibby's veteran leadership) 105-77 in Washington on Monday night. It was Chicago's third consecutive win and their seventh in eight games, their 16th in 20 games.

The Hawks and Bulls have not met this season.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

Will this turn out like Philly and New Orleans? I hope not.. No Josh against their bigs scares me. Al has his work cut out tonight.
