Kyle Korver scored 24 points as the Hawks beat the Bulls in Chicago.

The Atlanta Hawks continued their impressive winning streak on Saturday with a 107-99 victory over the Bulls at the United Center in Chicago.

Kyle Korver had a game-high 24 points, Al Horford chipped in with a further 22 and Jeff Teague recorded a double-double as the Hawks followed up their win over the Atlantic Division leading Toronto Raptors with the triumph over the Central Division pace setters.

It’s now back to the Philips Arena in Atlanta for the Hawks on Monday as they open a seven-game home stand through the end of the month and look to increase their lead over the Washington Wizards in the Southeast Division.

The Hawks are 1.36 to win the Division, with the Wizards 3.00.

The Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Minnesota Timberwolves, Brooklyn Nets, Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers will all visit Georgia and after winning in Portland and Detroit earlier in the month, it is not outside the realms of possibility to see the Hawks’ winning ways continue.

A completely different side since the waiving of Josh Smith, the Pistons made it two in a row and eight of their last 10 on Saturday with a rout of the 76ers at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Kyle Singler led six Detroit players in double figures hitting 7-of-12 from the floor including 6-of-8 from long range in the 107-89 triumph as the Pistons moved to within a game of the Nets, who continue to occupy the eighth and final playoff place in the Eastern Conference.
