CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls were determined to regain their home-court advantage, and the Atlanta Hawks certainly cooperated. Atlanta set several records for offensive futility Monday in a 97-58 loss at the United Center. A layup by Jeff Teague with 7.9 seconds left prevented the Hawks from breaking their all-time record for fewest points in a game. The mark of 57 has stood since 1955. The Bulls did set a team record for fewest points allowed. That one stood for less than a year, as they gave up 59 points to the Magic at Orlando on March 19. Chicago was coming off consecutive home losses to the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns, which left the Bulls with a 10-10 record at the United Center this season. On the road, they're 10-5. "I feel like the ball was moving well offensively. Defensively, we were all on the same page," Chicago center Joakim Noah said. "I think it was all about our edge and our mindset. I felt like that was the difference tonight."...
