ESPN.com: 5-on-5: Breaking down Game 6 between Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks

This morning I join Michael Wallace, Jared Wade, John Krolik, and Braedan Ritter to discuss the Hawks/Bulls series and make predictions about Game 6:
5. In Thursday's Game 6 in Atlanta ...

A. The Bulls finally end this series.
B.
The Hawks extend it to Game 7.

Bret LaGree, Hoopinion: B. The Hawks extend it to Game 7. At the risk of making my clean sweep of being wrong about the Hawks throughout the playoffs come to a painful end, I'll pick the Hawks. The home crowd may be enough to prop up Teague and Johnson and Horford and Smith even if the minutes catch up with them in the fourth quarter again.

Question 4 was just a bit insulting for Hawks' fans. Okay, sure, we don't expect Atlanta to win the series, but the question and, apparently, all of the panel took for granted that the Bulls will advance in what has been a (surprisingly) close, tough played series. I mean, the reason I'm still watching isn't because I'm hoping the Hawks can lose respectably.

Bronn --

Even I felt compelled to amend my answer with "...if the Bulls make it that far."

Sure, it's probable that the Bulls win this series but it's not over yet.
