About this Article

This is the sort of thing that doesn't happen very often in the final minute of a close NBA game, with both teams set up in the half-court. Bulls guard Marco Belinelli got the ball at the top of the key, accepted a pick from teammate Joakim Noah, turned the corner and saw nothing but an unguarded rim. His layup broke a tie with 22.1 seconds left and the Bulls beat Brooklyn 83-82 on Saturday at the United Center.
