Bayless hits buzzer beating layup for Game 4 win

Jerryd Bayless hit a backdoor layup as time expired, giving the Bucks a 92-90 win over the Bulls in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference playoff series and holding off elimination for at least a few more days.

The Bucks force a Game 5 with the win. That game happens in Chicago Monday night.

Khris Middleton stole the ball from Derrick Rose in the final second, and Jason Kidd instantly called a time out to set up the game winning play, a Jared Dudley inbounds pass in which Bayless snuck behind Rose and laid the ball in as stunned Bulls players watched.

O.J. Mayo led the Bucks with 18 points, including a three-pointer to put Milwaukee up by six with two minutes to play. Derrick Rose followed with a three, and Pau Gasol's three point play tied the game inside the final minute.

Former Marquette star Jimmy Butler scored 33 points to lead the Bulls, who can finish off the series with a win Monday.

The playoff win is the Bucks first since their 2009-2010 playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks.
