Chicago

[CHICAGO] — The Chicago Bulls played host to the Atlanta Hawks last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 106 to 104 Bulls victory. The win bumps Chicago's record up to 37-39 on the season, while the loss drags Atlanta's down to 39-37. Though a win's a win and Bulls fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Jimmy Butler leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 33 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 43 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Unfortunately for Butler, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Bulls. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Atlanta back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Bulls in the victory was Dennis Schroder and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Butler, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Schroder posted 29 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in the win.

Chicago's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Hawks, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Bulls will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Bulls will be a date with the New Orleans Pelicans while the visiting Hawks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.
