Despite another sluggish start, with the aid of Luol Deng's 22 points and Ben Gordon's 21 the Bulls last night pulled out a solid 90-78 win against Atlanta, their third on the season, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. With the win, the Bulls snapped a four-game skid, coming back from an early 13-4 Hawks' lead to do it.
"I think we're playing with the same fire, I just think mentally we're just allowing little things to distract us," Deng said concerning the team's 3-10 start to the season. "We always find a way out of it. You don't want to be in this situation, but you have to keep playing." With the loss, Atlanta falls to 5-8.
