Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls waited two days to find out their second round opponent after eliminating the Indiana Pacers. The Atlanta Hawks surprisingly took advantage of poor Orlando Magic perimeter shooting and rode the hot hand themselves to some close but impressive victories, winning their series in six games. They now head to the Second CIty to try and score their second upset in as many rounds.
Here is the schedule for the Bulls-Hawks series, which will be primarily featured on TNT (with a few possible games on ESPN).
Game 1 - Mon., May 2nd, Hawks at Bulls 5 PM PT/8 PM ET, TNT
