ATLANTA (AP) — Al Horford scored 21 points, including a huge jumper with just under a minute remaining, and the streaking Atlanta Hawks won for the 10th time in 11 games with a 93-86 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
The Hawks led most of the way, but never by more than 10 points. After Taj Gibson’s dunk with 1:13 remaining brought the Bulls to 87-84, Horford got loose for a 19-footer on the wing and knocked it down.
Pau Gasol followed his own miss to make it 89-86 with 23.7 seconds left, giving the Bulls one more chance. But the Hawks grabbed possession on a jump ball and sealed the victory at the foul line, ending Chicago’s three-game winning streak.
Jimmy Butler led the Bulls with 22 points.
