2011 Playoffs second round preview of Bulls vs Hawks
 
The Hawks will beat Chicago in 6:

1. Let Rose get his points and shut down everyone else.
2. Put our bigs on Boozer (Collins, Pachulia, Armstrong, Powell, Thomas) to shut him down and beat him up, so that by the end of the series he is worn out (like what happened with Howard, who is a far superior player).
3. Smith can contain Deng.
4. Johnson can contain Korver.

hawkfan predicts - Hawks in 6.

hawkfan = the greatest Hawk fan of them all.

That's the thing - Hawks second round failures vs. Boozer's consistent playoff failures.

Without Boozer producing, the Bulls can't win. They won't get enough offense.

I could shut down Boozer at this point.

This is going to be a good series.

Must not have watched the last 20 games of the season and the playoffs. Boozer's offense has been non-existent and they still won 12 in a row before dropping that one game to Indy.

The Bulls killed the Hawks in the regular season and it took an epic collapse for ATL's only win against Chicago.


With that said, I say Chicago wins in 6. Atlanta has matchups that fair well against the Bulls. Hinrich will give Rose fits, these guys practiced a ton over the past two years. And Horford always kills us. It depends on which Boozer shows up. He can take advantage over Josh Smith if he plays like his Utah-self.

So, uhh... Are we not supposed to laugh at this? Or what?
Kirk might not even play in this series, BTW. And don't you dare use that as an excuse for when you lose.

someone will karate-chop Rose and that will be the end of the Bulls. end of story.

Bulls in 5...

Bulls defence is too good, and the hawks always go on those runs of not being able to score for a few mins as it is... Good job beating the magic though:applause: But i cant see them beating the bulls....

Every game against the Spacers was close and Indiana would have won more games with better execution.

Bulls in 6.

Chicago is about to dominate the boards and the defensive end.

Only way ATL would win this series is if Joe Johnson and Crawford just go off. Which is possible, but I don't see it happening when they can't rebound with Chicago.
