Well, the Atlanta Hawks didn't need starting point guard Kirk Hinrich after all.

Joe Johnson and Jeff Teague made sure of that when they played far better than most expected to lead the Hawks to a 103-95 upset of the Bulls on Monday night before a sellout crowd of 22,890 at the United Center.

The 6-7 Johnson proved unstoppable as he shot out the lights by scoring a game-high 34 points — one under his career playoff high.
