Tonight: Hawks @ Bulls

3 Jan 2012

United Center, Chicago, 7:00 CT, CSN & NBA TV

Questions

1. Come on, the Hawks have a bunch of nice players, but have they changed their stripes? They go out in the first (or possibly second) round of the playoffs every year, and this group seems little different. They lead the league in offensive rating, just ahead of the Bulls, but am I supposed to be impressed by a trio of opening wins against the Nets, Wizards and Nets again?

2. On the other hand, these guys did win in Miami last night. Is that cause for Chicago alarm? A fluke? No doubt a road back-to-back against two of the league’s three best teams is a lot to ask. Most likely too much.

3. Where is Jeff Teague in his development as a point guard? He had his moments when these teams met in the playoffs last season and has now played well against Atlanta’s easy opening schedule, shouldering the load with Kirk Hinrich sidelined. Facing Derrick Rose is a whole other matter.
