With five seconds left in regulation, Shane Richards was fouled attempting a 3-pointer and made all three free throws to tie the game at 77. Following a missed Evans jumper on the other end, the game went to overtime.

In the extra session, a Freelove 3-pointer tied the game at 81 with just under a minute to play, but this was the only field goal the Bulls made in the period. A Rich Williams layup with 18 seconds left proved to be the game- winner.
