Recap: Milwaukee vs. Chicago

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Dunleavy's go-ahead 3-pointer with 5.8 seconds left lifted the Chicago Bulls to a 91-90 triumph over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

Milwaukee's Khris Middleton broke an 88-88 tie with 29.8 seconds left after he got a circus left-handed shot to fall over Dunleavy with the shot clock running down.

Jimmy Butler was called for traveling at the other end, but Joakim Noah forced a jump ball along the left baseline on Gary Neal.

Noah won the tap back to Boozer and Kirk Hinrich dribbled to the right wing before finding Dunleavy, who banked home the triple from the top of the arc.

"When it left my hand, I thought it had a good chance to go in. I thought it was going to bank in because (John) Henson was out there and I had to get it up over his outstretched arm," Dunleavy said.

Noah blocked O.J. Mayo's runner at the other end to seal the outcome.

"It should not have come down to it," Bucks head coach Larry Drew said of Dunleavy's shot. "We were in position where we should have closed that game out."

Noah filled the stat sheet with 21 points, 18 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and three steals for Chicago, which snapped a three-game slide. Boozer added 14 points and 12 boards and Butler netted 16 points in the victory.

John Henson had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Bucks, who have dropped five of their last seven tilts.

The Bulls trailed 88-83 with 1:30 left, but Dunleavy sunk three free throws after he was fouled on a three to get Chicago within two. Mayo missed a jumper at the other end and Boozer swished in a left baseline jumper to knot the tilt with 54.9 ticks on the clock.

Earlier, Butler capped a 10-0 Bulls run during the latter stages of the first with a trey to make it 26-16 in favor of Chicago before the visitors took a 26-18 spread into the second.

Neal knocked down a triple and recorded a three-point play on back-to-back trips down the floor to finish off an 11-3 spurt to knot the contest at 29-29 near the midway point of the second.

The Bucks took a 51-47 spread into the break and led 69-62 after three.
