The Bulls came into Philips Arena missing a list of star players.

It didn't much matter.

The Bulls defeated the Hawks 93-76 Saturday night with their one remaining star, Luol Deng, on the floor.

Chicago played without several key players as Derrick Rose (left knee), Kirk Hinrich (right elbow), Carlos Boozer (right hamstring) and Joakim Noah (right foot) were all out. The Bulls also played short-handed in a loss at the Bucks Friday.

"I can't see how we could have taken that team lightly minus the players that weren't there," Hawks coach Larry Drew said. "We've been in that situation before where we've played other teams and they've come in here short-handed. We are professionals. I'm being paid to come out and coach. They are being paid to come out and play. We have a job to do. I don't care who shows up come time to tip the ball. We have a job to do. We are not in a position to take anybody lightly."

Deng, who finished with a game-high 25 points, hit back-to-back 3-pointers midway through the fourth quarter as the Bulls opened a 14-point advantage the Hawks could not erase.
