The Chicago Bulls will go for Win No. 3 when they host their conference rivals Atlanta Hawks on Monday, January 23 at the United Center.

The regular-season series between the two teams is tied at one game apiece.

But both teams have other things in mind coming off their last game results.

On one end is the host Bulls, who are on a two-game winning roll.

In their last assignment, they won over the Detroit Pistons, 126-108, in a game that was held in Paris, France.

"It's great for people here in Paris to get an up-close look at the NBA," Bulls coach Billy Donovan said. "It makes you realize that the sport is followed so closely around the world. It was amazing. The place was sold out."

Zach LaVine led that win with 30 points, five rebounds, and four assists.

Providing backup was DeMar DeRozan, who had 26 points, nine rebounds, and five assists.

The Bulls are averaging 114.8 points per game, good for the 13th spot in the NBA right now.

Chicago also carries an offensive rating of 112.9, 19th in the league.

On the defensive end, Chicago is limiting opponents to 115 points per game, 18th in the NBA. They hold a defensive rating of 113.1, 12th in the league.

The Atlanta Hawks, on the other hand, are looking to bounce back after dropping a 118-122 decision to the Charlotte Hornets.

The Hawks lost after Trae Young was unable to find an open teammate with Mason Plumlee making it tough on him to put the ball in play.

"They did a good job of blitzing us," Young said. "We'll be better next time."

Dejounte Murray led the losing cause with 26 points.

Young added a double-double of 25 markers and 12 assists, while Deandre Hunter also had 25 points for that match.

The Hawks are scoring 116 points per game with an offensive rating of 112.9, good for the 17th spot in the NBA.

Defensively, Atlanta is holding down opponents to 116.3 points per contest as they tote a defensive rating of 113.

Oddsmakers pick the Bulls as slight favorites (-1) to prevail over the Hawks, who are at +1.

Moreover, the moneyline for this matchup is -115 for Chicago and -105 for Atlanta.

Game time is set for 8:00 PM ET, with a live telecast on NBA TV. It will also be available via digital streaming through fuboTV.
