Nate Robinson nailed a 3-pointer with just under a minute left and Carlos Boozer hit two foul shots with 16.8 seconds remaining to pull Chicago within 99-97.

DeRozan then made two free throws to get the lead up to four, but the Bulls weren't finished. Robinson hit the first of two free throws with 10.6 free throws left, and after a jump ball following the miss, there was a scramble for the loose ball.

From the floor, Boozer threw it to Robinson. The ball went through his hands and started to go into the back court. The guard saved it off Toronto's Amir Johnson to avoid the violation but missed a heave at the buzzer.
