THE Hawks continued their fine run, downing the Chicago Bulls, 115-107, to stretch their streak to three on Wednesday in Atlanta (Thursday, Manila time).

It was a huge follow-up win for the Hawks, who the night before dealt the Cleveland Cavaliers their first loss of the season.

Thabo Sefolosha led the way this time for Atlanta, coming off the bench to score 20 points on 8 of 9 shooting, while seven other Hawks delivered double digit scores.

Dwight Howard had 18 points and Paul Millsap scored 16 as the Hawks recorded their sixth win in eight games.

The Hawks also spoiled the 39-point night of Jimmy Butler.

Dwyane Wade also had a big game wasted, scoring 25 as the Bulls suffered their fourth loss in the last five games after starting the season with three straight wins.
