Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - So much for Atlanta being tested on its four-game road trip. Kyle Korver hit seven 3-pointers and finished with 24 points, as the Hawks completed the trek undefeated with a 107-99 win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. Al Horford posted 22 points and nine rebounds and Jeff Teague filled the stat sheet with 17 points, 11 assists, three steals and three blocks for the Hawks, who have won 12 straight. I felt like tonight we were a little tired ... but guys kept fighting, nobody made excuses and we just kept playing, Horford said. Atlanta, which routed the Raptors 110-89 on Friday night, won its four games on the trip by an average of 15.25 points. The Hawks have also won 12 consecutive contests away from home. The Hawks have won 26 of their last 28 games overall and are two games away from matching the longest winning streak in franchise history. The 1993-94 team won 14 in a row. Pau Gasol tallied 22 points and 15 rebounds, while Derrick Rose provided 23 points, 10 helpers and eight boards for Chicago, which has dropped five of its last seven games. Very frustrating, but got to get it together if we want to go far, Rose said. After Nikola Mirotic sunk a pair of foul shots to stake the Bulls to a 21-16 advantage late in the first quarter, the Hawks went on a 15-6 run that bled into the second. Mike Scott nailed a 3-pointer at the first quarter buzzer to jumpstart the surge and a Korver triple preceded a Paul Millsap layup to cap it and give Atlanta a 36-22 margin at the 7:30 mark of the second. The Hawks were up 48-39 at the break and 76-67 after three. Taj Gibsons dunk pulled Chicago within 76-69 early in the fourth, but a Korver four-point play increased the cushion to 80-69 and the Bulls never got within less than five the rest of the way. Rose drove in for a reverse to claw the Bulls within 93-88 with 4:25 to play, but Horford hit a jumper and two Millsap foul shots gave Atlanta a 97-88 spread with 3:29 to go. The Hawks cruised to the victory from there. Game Notes Atlantas 26-2 mark over its last 28 games is the best extended stretch in the NBA since the Miami Heat won 27 straight two seasons ago ... Chicago has lost four of its past five home games ... Horford was 11-of-14 from the floor, while Korver was 7-of-9 from beyond the arc. Wholesale Vapormax Plus .

Abreu, who won the prestigious Chili Bowl in Oklahoma on Saturday, will run all 14 K&N events along with his usual open-wheel schedule of more than 100 races.The 22-year-old Californian stands just 4-foot-4, weighs roughly 95 pounds and needs blocks under the pedals for him to reach them. But hes one of the most popular drivers in sprint car racing, and the Chili Bowl crowd chanted his name after he took the checkered flag.He also received praise on Twitter from many NASCAR stars, and celebrated the win Monday night in Charlotte with good friends Kyle Larson and Kasey Kahne, who both have sprint car backgrounds.When I grew up I played sports and I wrestled in middle school, and all my friends and classmates kind of outgrew me, he said Tuesday. I was limited to the things I could do and I became a big race fan. Well, I didnt even think I could race until I did it for the first time. Its just so cool to have the feeling that people really believe in you and would like to see you achieve. Then let alone winning the Chili Bowl ... I think a lot of people believe in me. Im glad that people can really see who I am and they dont judge me for what I look like or why Im doing it.The timing of his announcement to drive stock cars just happens to coincide with his Chili Bowl victory, and Abreu hopes this shot will help him gain recognition outside the dirt track world.There are so many more NASCAR fans that dont follow dirt racing and dont know wwhat I do, so Im really looking forward to it, he said.dddddddddddd. I think the fans will react a lot differently than the average driver — average-looking driver — coming to NASCAR.Abreu is following a similar path to the one close friend Larson took to climb from sprint cars to NASCARs reigning Sprint Cup rookie of the year. Larson won the K&N East title in 2012 and was full-time in NASCAR the next year.Larson occasionally drives in NASCARs second-tier Xfinity Series for Harry Scott Jr., who has a partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing, his Cup team. Abreu could soon find himself with opportunities at NASCARs national level.Abreu had Tuesday earmarked for his first stock car and pavement test, at Motor Mile in Virginia, before competing in his first stock car and pavement race on Saturday at New Smyrna in Florida. Abreus first K&N event will be Feb. 15 at New Smyrna Speedway.He said NASCAR has signed off on the modifications needed in a stock car to accommodate his small frame.NASCAR came and saw all the improvements and theyre fine with it all, he said. They said everything is safe and looks safe, and I feel safe in the race car so I think that is the big first step.Abreus No. 98 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East entry will be led by veteran K&N crew chief Mardy Lindley. He has five career victories in three seasons, along with the 2013 K&N title with driver Dylan Kwasniewski.Abreu, an open wheel standout, will continue to race open wheel events and figures he will do 120 this year. He said he noticed on conflict with his K&N schedule and sprint schedule, but three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart said he would make sure Abreu made it to all the events.He said, Dont worry about that, Ill get you there, Abreu said.
