Atlanta Cruises Past Bulls; Deng & Noah Out
CHICAGO (AP) -- Marvin Williams scored 18 points, Josh Smith added 17 points and a season-high 18 rebounds, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the short-handed Chicago Bulls 116-92 Monday night for their fourth win in five games.

Atlanta pulled away down the stretch after their 18-point, second-quarter lead was cut to five early in the fourth.

Williams scored seven during a 9-0 run following a basket by Chicago's Derrick Rose, making it 94-79 midway through the fourth and breaking open a six-point game.

Rose led the Bulls with 24 points despite missing most of the first quarter after hurting his right knee, but it was a long night for a team that had won eight of 11.
