Teague free throws help Hawks hold off Bulls, 102-100
CHICAGO — Jeff Teague scored 26 points, including two free throws with just over six seconds to play, and the surging Atlanta Hawks fought off a furious Chicago rally for a 102-100 win Monday night.
It was the fourth straight win for the Hawks. Though the Bulls mounted a dramatic late comeback, they continued a late-season swoon, losing their fourth straight.
The Bulls were down as much as 15 in the second half, but stormed back in the fourth quarter and were down three with the ball with eight seconds to play. Chicago’s Mike Dunleavy missed a layup, though, and fouled Teague, whose free throws sealed Atlanta’s ninth win in 10 games.
Dennis Schroder and Al Horford each added 14 points for Atlanta. Paul Millsap had 11 rebounds and Horford added 10 for the Hawks, who completed a season sweep of the Bulls.
Derrick Rose had 20 points for the Bulls.
