|Deng's 3-pointers Lead Bulls Past Hawks 98-77
|ATLANTA (AP) -- Luol Deng scored 22 points and led a flurry of 3-pointers as the Chicago Bulls won another game on the road, blowing out the Atlanta Hawks 98-77 on Wednesday night.
Deng was 5 of 8 from beyond the arc and the Bulls finished 9 of 16 overall to improve their NBA-best record away from home to 21-6, even while missing star Derrick Rose for the eighth straight game with a shoulder injury. The Bulls haven't missed a beat, winning six times without their MVP.
Chicago built an 18-point lead in the second quarter. The Hawks scored the final six points of the half, then started the third quarter on a 10-2 run to get to 56-52.
It was all Bulls from there. They ripped off 20 of the next 26 points.
