Jeff Teague will be important with his foot speed.

But, the thing is, we have D. Rose and they didn't.

3. Smith can contain Deng.
4. Johnson can contain Korver.

hawkfan predicts - Hawks in 6.

hawkfan = the greatest Hawk fan of them all.

And that's why the Bulls blew you guys out in nearly every game?

I got Bulls in 5.

Remember, the last two years the team that beat the Hawks in the second round went on to lose in the ECF.

Bulls 4-2.

2 losses will be close.

Defence and chemistry is far superior to the Magic.

The Hawks lost the last 6 games of the season, and yet we beat the Magic.

And the Magic crushed us in the playoffs last year.

Yea, it will be tough against the Bulls.

But personnel wise, we have a great chance.

I can't wait to watch Collins, Pachulia, Powell, Armstrong and Thomas beat up and wear down Boozer, like what happened with Howard.

The key will be Jeff Teague. Great defensive player, horrible on offense. He is the only guy who has the foot speed to stay in front of Rose without giving him an open jump shot.

Another key will be Deng. Can he get his shot off against Smith, who can play him one on one?

Horford with his much improved jump shot will be able to pull Noah out of the middle. And if the Bulls put Boozer on Horford, then Al will get 25-30 per night, since Boozer's defense is so bad.

I know he's joking, but still. The Hawks are just awful, like, they
re a really, really bad team. Easily the worst team left in the playoffs, it would take a serious injury to D Rose for the Hawks to even have a chance.

In all fairness half the league was blowing out the Hawks. They finished the season 11-20 and had more blowout home losses than any winning team in NBA history.

Hinrich had to be helped off the floor at the end of the game. If he can't go it could be ugly.

Do the Hawks have the personnel or goon-like personalities to put Rose on his ass when he comes in the paint? I'm not sure they do. The Hawks are a finesse team. After that grueling, physical series against the Pacers I think the Bulls are going to cherish playing a team like the Hawks.
