Bayless' layup at buzzer gives Bucks 92-90 win over Bulls

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - - Jerryd Bayless made a layup at the buzzer off an inbounds pass, lifting Milwaukee to a 92-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, drawing the Bucks within 3-1 in their Eastern Conference playoff series.

With 1.3 seconds left, Jared Dudley threw a high-arcing pass toward the basket from side court. Bayless caught the ball and quickly threw up the layup for the game-winning basket.

Bulls guard Derrick Rose walked away in frustration after trying to guard Bayless as green and white streamers descended from the Bradley Center rafters. The Bucks had won their first playoff game in five years.

Chicago had a chance to win with the game tied at 90. But Milwaukee's Khris Middleton tipped a dribble away from Rose to force a steal. Bucks coach Jason Kidd called a timeout to set up the final play.
