CHICAGO (TICKER) —The Atlanta Hawks continue a four-game road trip Tuesday night with a visit to the Chicago Bulls.

Atlanta needs two more defeats to secure a fourth straight losing season, which follows a stretch in which it was at least .500 13 times in 14 seasons.

The Hawks had won six of their last eight and had a season-high three-game winning streak stopped with a 124-92 loss at Memphis on Sunday. They trailed by 18 through one quarter, faced a 29-point deficit at halftime and shot 38.5 percent (35-of-91).

Glenn Robinson scored 23 points and former Grizzlie Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Jason Terry each had 20 for Atlanta.

Chicago is returning from a winless three-game road trip in which it gave up an average of almost 118 points and lost by an average of 23 points per game.

The Bulls ended the trip with an 108-97 setback to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. Donyell Marshall had 29 points, but leading scorer Jalen Rose had just 12 on a woeful 4-of-24 from the field. Rose also was ejected after confronting Spurs’ forward Bruce Bowen late in the third quarter.

The Bulls had 26 turnovers in Friday’s loss to Houston and had 24 more Sunday.

The Hawks rolled to a 110-88 rout here on February 28 as Terry had 23 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for his first career triple-double.
