Late 3-Pointer Lifts Bulls Past Bucks

Chicago 91, Milwaukee 90



    Chicago Bulls' Jimmy Butler dunks during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Friday, Dec. 13, 2013, in Milwaukee.

    Mike Dunleavy hit a three-pointer with 5.8 seconds left and Joakim Noah came up with a block on the other end, leading the Chicago Bulls to a 91-90 comeback victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

    Trailing by two in the final seconds, Chicago came up with a tie-up on the defensive end and won the jump ball, allowing Dunleavy to hit a high-arching 3 for the lead.

    Noah then blocked O.J. Mayo's shot to preserve the lead — and a victory that appeared unlikely just seconds before.

    Noah scored 21 points and grabbed 18 rebounds for the Bulls, who ended a three-game losing streak. Chicago scored fewer than 80 points in all three losses — including one to Milwaukee in Chicago on Tuesday.
