CHICAGO - The Atlanta Hawks are looking down at the rest of the Eastern Conference heading into the second half of the season. Authentic Rod Woodson Jersey .With their efficient offence and stingy defence, Kyle Korver and company could be on top for a while.Korver made a season-high seven 3-pointers on his way to 24 points, and the Hawks beat the Chicago Bulls 107-99 Saturday night for their 12th straight victory.I think were gaining confidence by the game, Korver said.Al Horford added 22 points and nine rebounds as the Hawks matched the second-longest win streak in franchise history.

The Hawks jumped into passing lanes and used their active hands to disrupt Chicagos offence, with the Bulls committing seven turnovers in the first quarter after they totalled seven during Friday nights win at Boston.It was more of the same in the second half. Each time Chicago made a run, Atlanta responded.Korver had a four-point play that made it 80-69 with 11:09 to go. After Rose had a slick layup on the break that got Chicago within five, Horford buried a face-up jumper and Millsap made two foul shots to run the lead back out to 97-88 with 3:29 remaining.Were a confident group, Teague said. We just know if we play the right way and play great defence and be aggressive defensively that weve got a chance to be in any ballgame. Were just playing in a really good groove right now.The Bulls played without centre Joakim Noah, sidelined by a sprained right ankle for the second straight game. The reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year was scheduled for an MRI on Saturday, but coach Tom Thibodeau said before the game that he had not received the results.Chicago forward Mike Dunleavy missed his ninth consecutive game with a right ankle problem, and rookie Doug McDermott remains out with a right knee injury.___Travelling SHOWAtlanta extended its franchise-record road winning streak to 12 games.

Sweezy was the one part of the Seattle Seahawks offensive line that had avoided injuries or having to change positions this season.One day after New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski pronounced himself ready to return, Bill Belichick reminded him it will be the coachs decision. "With all due respect to Rob, Im glad he feels the way he does," Belichick said during a conference call Tuesday. "But, in the end, well have to make the decision that we feel is best for the team and well do that as we go through the week." Belichick keeps a tight lid on information in Foxborough -- especially when it concerns injuries. So it was surprising when Gronkowski told reporters Monday he was "super excited" to be returning this week -- before Belichick said anything of the sort. "Its going to be an honour to be back out there with my teammates. Super pumped, super excited and just preparing for the game," he said. "It just feels good in my mind to know that Ill be out there with my boys, working hard, grinding with them, being out there." Gronkowski said he was just getting it out of the way because he figured hed be asked about it all week. Not so fast. "Well, Im glad that Robs optimistic about his situation," Belichick said.

" A two-time Pro Bowl selection who has set receiving records for tight ends, Gronkowski was injured in the 11th game of the 2012 season when he broke his arm blocking for a late, meaningless extra point. He appeared in seven games last season, catching 39 passes, four for touchdowns, before tearing up his right knee on Dec. 8 against the Cleveland Browns. He had ligament surgery to repair the ACL and MCL in his right knee, and has not played this exhibition season. Asked Monday if he feels ready, Gronkowski said, "Definitely." "I feel mentally and physically ready, for sure, no doubt about it," he added. "Now I just have to focus on the Miami Dolphins, just keep focusing on getting better and getting stronger." In all, Gronkowski has 226 catches with 42 touchdowns in 50 regular-season games, showing he can dominate the game in a way few tight ends have. "Rob has been practicing, and weve been doing some different things, building our offensive system and packages as we go throughout the course of the year. Hes been a part of that," offensive co-ordinator Josh McDaniels said. "Whatever we can or are available to use him to do -- however big, small, whatever the decision is at the end of the week -- and hell be ready to do it."
