Dunleavy leads Bulls past Hawks 91-84

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO -- Mike Dunleavy scored 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to help the Chicago Bulls beat the Atlanta Hawks 91-84 Saturday night.

Luol Deng added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Bulls, hitting two free throws with 8.8 seconds left to seal the win. Chicago led most of the way in winning for the fifth time in seven games.

Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague scored 16 points apiece for the Hawks.

A 3-point attempt by Kyle Korver that would have cut the Bulls' lead to 84-82 with 4:16 left was overturned and ruled a shot clock violation upon review.

Korver extended his NBA record of games with at least one 3-pointer made to 103 straight when he hit the first of his two 3-pointers with 9:59 left in the first quarter. Korver finished with eight points.

The Hawks tied the game 67-all with 11:12 left on Mike Scott's free throw. It was the first time the Bulls hadn't led since 6:19 in the first quarter. But Dunleavy answered with a 3-pointer, Joakim Noah scored on a putback and Jimmy Butler made a layup to put the Bulls ahead 74-69 with 8:41 remaining.

Atlanta pulled to within one on Teague's layup with 5:38 left, but Dunleavy responded with a jumper and Taj Gibson scored on a dunk for an 84-79 lead.

Carlos Boozer missed his first Bulls game of the season due to a sore right knee. MRI results on the knee were negative and the Bulls are hoping the injury isn't serious. Gibson started in his place.

Butler and D.J. Augustin each had 11 points, and Gibson and Noah had 10 points and 12 rebounds apiece. The Bulls shot 40.7 percent to Atlanta's 37.2 percent.

Scott scored 12 and DeMarre Carroll had 10 for Atlanta.

The Hawks pulled to within one twice late in the third quarter but were unable to pull ahead. The Bulls led 67-64 after three quarters.

Deng made a half-court shot at the second-quarter buzzer to give the Bulls a 50-45 lead at the break. Korver had made a 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left to cut the Bulls' lead to 47-45 after they were ahead by as many as 10.

The Bulls led 26-18 after the first quarter.

Atlanta had scored at least 100 points in 10 of 11 games.

The Hawks were playing the second game of a back-to-back. Atlanta lost 101-100 to the Golden State Warriors on Friday when Andre Iguodala hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer after Atlanta led by as many as 15 points with six minutes left.

NOTES: Hawks guard John Jenkins (low back pain) missed his sixth straight game. He is expected to also miss the Hawks' game Monday against Brooklyn. . Center Pero Antic remained in the Hawks' lineup after he scored 16 points in his first career start on Friday against Golden State. . This was the first meeting of the season between the teams. The Bulls went 2-1 against Atlanta last season.
