Recap: Atlanta vs. Chicago

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Dunleavy led seven Chicago scorers in double figures with 22 points, as the Bulls got back to their winning ways with a 107-103 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday at Philips Arena.

Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer both donated double-doubles, with Noah notching 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Boozer registered 17 points and 11 boards for the Bulls, who had won five straight before dropping a 93-79 decision at Miami on Sunday.

"We're just trying to find a way," Noah said. "It wasn't pretty at times. I'm just happy we were able to come out with the win."

Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson both scored 14, while Tony Snell and D.J. Augustin netted 10 points apiece in the victory.

Jeff Teague tallied 26 points and seven assists, while Kyle Korver contributed 16 points and seven boards for the Hawks, who have lost nine of their last 10 games.

Dunleavy's driving layup gave Chicago a 101-100 lead with 1:29 to play, but DeMarre Carroll drained a 3-pointer at the other end to put the Hawks on top.

However, Caroll fouled Hinrich attempting a trey on the visitors' next touch, and the veteran guard knocked down all three free throws to restore Chicago's one-point edge.

"It was one of those games that came down to the final minute and they got the calls and we didn't," Carroll said. "They (the refs) made a call and we have to live with it."

After the teams exchanged empty possessions, the Hawks had the ball with under 15 seconds left, but Teague stepped out along the baseline under the Chicago net, giving possession back to the Bulls.

Hinrich then hit two free throws with 11 seconds left and after Noah stripped Mike Scott as he tried to take a 3-pointer on Atlanta's next touch, Hinrich sealed the outcome with 1-of-2 from the charity stripe.

Atlanta led by as many as 14 in the first quarter before taking a 30-20 lead into the second, but the Bulls shot 55 percent from the field and held the Hawks to a 34.8 percent clip in the second stanza to take a 54-51 edge into the break.

The Bulls held Atlanta at bay in the third and carried an 80-75 spread into the final frame.

Atlanta grabbed an 85-84 lead early in the fourth following consecutive 3- pointers from Lou Williams, but the Bulls answered with five straight points to regain the lead, which they held until Carroll's running layup with 1:41 on the clock.
