(NBA) Bulls end Hawks' playoff hope
(04-03 14:33)

D.J. Augustin scored 23 points as Chicago bumped slumping Atlanta out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a 105-92 victory with two weeks left in the season.
Chicago took control with a 16-3 run in the second quarter and led the rest of the way, fending off the last of Atlanta's runs when Jimmy Butler swished a 3-pointer with just over a minute remaining.
The Hawks lost for the 21st time in 28 games, this one dropping them slightly behind New York for the eighth playoff seed. The Knicks (33-43) routed Brooklyn 110-81 to climb percentage points ahead of Atlanta (32-42). Cleveland is also in the mix after beating Orlando.
