It was clear from the beginning of the night that things wouldn’t go the way Hawks fans may have predicted it would.
The Atlanta Hawks faced the Chicago Bulls in what was the second game of a back to back for both teams.
The Hawks don't seem to have the same energy from last night.
2nd night of the back to back is showing early for this young Hawks team #TrueToAtlanta

The Hawks were coming off of a win against the Spurs on Tuesday here in Atlanta. The Bulls were coming off of a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers at home in Chicago.
The Hawks entered the game as 2 point favorites however the Bulls jumped out on the Hawks early in the game and never looked back.
Atlanta possibly played their worse first quarter of the season on Wednesday night. In the first quarter, the Hawks shot just 32% from the field, and 12% from three point land. To make matters worse, Trae Young didn’t score his first points of the evening until there was 1.8 seconds remaining in the quarter.
Poor shooting, turnovers and poor defense was pretty much the theme of the night against the Bulls. The Hawks were able to mask the loss of John Collins on Tuesday night vs. the Spurs. In tonight’s action, Collins’ absence was evident.
The Hawks shot 41% from the field and 20% from three point land. Trae Young finished the night for the Hawks with 9 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assist in 29 minutes of play. Jabari Parker added 18 points and 5 rebounds. Kevin Huerter added 12 points.
For Chicago, Tomas Satoransky scored 27 points along with 7 rebounds and 8 assist.
The Atlanta Hawks are now (3-4) on the season and they are off on Thursday. The Hawks are back in action at State Farm Arena on Friday November 8th vs. the Sacramento Kings. Follow @eldorado2452 on Twitter and Instagram for all your Atlanta Hawks, NBA and sports news.
