The Atlanta Hawks used a dominant second-quarter performance to defeat the Chicago Bulls 92-75 Saturday night.
All five Atlanta starters were in double figures as compared to two double-digit scorers for the offensively challenged Bulls team.
Al Horford led the way with 20 points and 10 rebounds on 9-of-12 shooting. He was given perimeter support from Kyle Korver and Lou Williams, who helped make Atlanta's offense much more dangerous than Chicago's anemic attack.
Aside from Joakim Noah and Luol Deng, the Bulls didn't come to play in this one. They shot 42.1 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 15 times. That's not how you're going to beat a quality Hawks team.

Player of the Game: Al Horford
Horford is a consistent double-double presence on the low block when he's healthy, and he showed that again Saturday night.
He's the only true post player that the Hawks have, which makes his presence even more important on the interior.
Putting up 20 points and grabbing 10 rebounds is solid, and he made a major difference versus the Bulls.
