MILWAUKEE (AP) - Derrick Rose drilled a long jumper at the buzzer, powering the Chicago Bulls to a 106-104 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Holding the ball for the last shot in a tie game, Rose pulled up just inside the 3-point line and hit it just as time expired. Rose was mobbed by his teammates near halfcourt, and cheered wildly by a predominantly pro-Bulls crowd.
Rose scored 30 and Joakim Noah added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls, who have won eight straight.
Ersan Ilyasova had a career-high 32 points and Drew Gooden added a season-high 27 for the Bucks, who were coming off a home win over Philadelphia on Monday.
The Bulls held Milwaukee's Brandon Jennings to 11 points on 4 for 18 shooting. Jennings had scored 27-plus points in his previous three games coming into Wednesday.
