Last time the Chicago Bulls made it to the second round of the playoffs Kirk Hinrich was their point guard. This time around he will be playing against his former team. That's right, Derrick Rose & the Chicago Bulls will face off against former teammate Kirk Hinrich and the Atlanta Hawks.
The Hawks surprised many by upsetting the Orlando Magic in the first round. It took 6 games after Atlanta basically didn't show up for game 5 but they did for game 6. Orlando despite Dwight Howard doing everything he could just didn't get enough help.
We know have some time info for the games.
Game 1 Monday May 2 at 7 PM on TNT
Game 2 Wednesday May 4 7 PM TNT
Game 3 Friday May 6 still TBA on Espn
Game 4 Sunday May 8 7 PM TNT
Game 5, 6 & 7 have no time info but 5 & 7 will be on TNT while game 6 will be on ESPN.
The Bulls won the season series 3-1 against Atlanta. I would expect this to go 5 or 6 games but can't see a way the Hawks upset the Bulls. They are long and athletic and could cause a few matchup problems but the Bulls are just to good. Also there have been many games this year where the Hawks just don't show up to play.
Remember wear your red if you are heading to the UC for games 1 or 2.
