Deng’s overtime game winner lifts Bulls over Raptors (VIDEO)

Jan 17, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

With Derrick Rose out the Bulls are counting on other guys to create and make the big shots. Like Luol Deng, who hit this pull-up jumper that would be the game winner Wednesday night in overtime against Toronto.

Chicago got Deng the ball out top and let him go in isolation against Landry Fields. Deng drove hard to the elbow area then just pulled up and nailed the shot from 17 feet. Ice cold.

The shot gave the Bulls the win in a game they controlled most of the way until a Kyle Lowry-led comeback in the fourth sent the game to overtime. Jose Calderon had a shot at a three to win it for Toronto but missed it.

    Never thought I would be “that guy” complaing about the refs but man that O.T was bad! Amire was fouled in the act of shooting as well with a foul on the floor called. He prob would have missed 1/2 but come on. Watching the raptors get terrible calls all year (against good teams and bad) in critical situations has been fun. Looking forward to getting JV back.

    I have not been a Carlos Boozer fan since he came to town but he has played very well this year.

      Boozer really has stepped it up.
      I think he had 36 and 12 last night.

    it was a blatant push off the refs bail the Bulls out alot of games with bad calls.

      I notice you didn’t mention the two obvious Kyle Lowry flops that gave the raptors five free throws and fouled hinrich out of the game.

    aggressive team gets the benefit of the call.

    its a conspiracy! the refs just love the bulls, that must be it?
