The Chicago Bulls were without Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Kirk Hinrich, but they didn't miss them. Three Bulls double-doubled in a 93-76 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
Taj Gibson was huge with 19 points and 19 boards. Gibson also added two assists, a steal and three blocks in 45 minutes.
Jimmy Butler started, scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds with two assists, three steals and a three in 46 minutes. He's a must-own player at this point.
Luol Deng poured in 25 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, four steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers. Monstrous.
Nate Robinson also started, scoring 20 points, dishing eight assists, and knocking down four threes in 41 minutes.
Noah's timetable to return from plantar fasciitis in his right foot isn't clear. Boozer (hamstring) is the closest to coming back. Hinrich could be out for a week after having his elbow drained.
