|Rose Leads Bulls Past Hawks in OT
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose scored a career-high 32 points and the Chicago Bulls overcame a season-high 40 points from Joe Johnson to beat Atlanta 101-98 in overtime Saturday night and snap the Hawks' six-game win streak.
Rose scored the tying basket in regulation, then hit two free throws with 10.8 seconds left in overtime to seal it, sending the Bulls to their second straight win.
The Hawks had a chance to tie it, but Johnson missed a 3-point attempt. Rose got the rebound and missed two free throws with 2.3 seconds left, but Chicago's Joakim Noah blocked an outlet pass after Al Horford grabbed the rebound to secure the victory.
