ATLANTA — Bogdan Bogdanovic’s 3-pointer with 1:41 left gave Atlanta the lead and Trae Young scored 39 points in the Hawks’ 130-124 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night.

After Bogdanovic’s 3 made it 119-118, Chicago’s DeMar DeRozan’s had a turnover, and Young padded the advantage with two 3s in the final 1:12.

Young had 13 assists and made 7 of 10 3s and all 10 of his free throws. Bogdanovic had 20 points.

The Hawks denied the Bulls’ bid to complete a four-game sweep of the season series.

Chicago, fighting for the Eastern Conference lead, suffered its third consecutive loss.

DeRozan and Zach LaVine each had 22 points for the Bulls. Nikola Vucevic had 21 points and 11 rebounds.


HEAT 113, NETS 107: Kevin Durant’s return couldn’t stop Brooklyn’s slide, as Bam Adebayo had 30 points, 11 rebounds and six assists to lead visiting Miami to the victory.

Tyler Herro added 27 points for the Eastern Conference-leading Heat, who bounced back from a tough loss in Milwaukee a night earlier with an impressive victory despite missing some of their top players.

Durant had 31 points in his first game since Jan. 15 and his return from a 21-game absence inspired the Nets to a 16-point lead. But Miami tightened up its defense in the second half and held off a late surge by the Nets.


76ERS: Veteran center DeAndre Jordan signed with the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, days after being released by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 33-year-old Jordan joins Paul Millsap as a backup center for the Sixers, who dealt Andre Drummond to Brooklyn as a part of the multiplayer trade that sent Ben Simmons to the Nets in exchange for James Harden last month. Terms of the deal were not released.


The 6-foot-11 Jordan appeared in 32 games with the Lakers, starting 19. He averaged 4.1 points and 5.4 rebounds in 12.8 minutes.

Jordan’s arrival reunites him with Philly’s Doc Rivers, who was his coach while with the Los Angeles Clippers.

NETS: Brooklyn swingman Joe Harris will have more surgery on his left ankle and miss the remainder of the season.

Harris had surgery on the ankle Nov. 29 and has missed the last 49 games. Nets General Manager Sean Marks said in a statement Thursday that Harris would need an additional arthroscopic surgery in the coming weeks.
