Chicago's Luol Deng led a flurry of 3-pointers to help the NBA-leading Bulls blow out the Atlanta Hawks 98-77 on Wednesday for another road victory.

Deng was 5 of 8 from beyond the arc and the Bulls finished 9 of 16 to improve to their NBA-best record away from home to 21-6 and their overall mark to 41-11, even though Derrick Rose was missing for the eighth straight game with a shoulder injury. The Bulls haven't missed a beat, winning six times without their MVP.

Deng finished with 22 points and had plenty of help, with Carlos Boozer scoring 20.

Josh Smith led Atlanta with 19 points.
