Josh Smith was limited to just 11 points against Washington (16.7ppg average) on 4-of-13 shooting. Chicago needs a better performance from Luol Deng, who was just 5-of-16 against Phoenix in their 97 81 loss. That was after making 27 of his last 44 shots. Joakim Noah is averaging a double-double with 12.4 points and 10.5 rebounds - and he's registered a double-double in three of his last five games. Make that five in a row at home against Atlanta for Chicago with a cover at home.
