Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Randy Brown did his best impersonation of Michael Jordan, hitting a 21-footer at the overtime buzzer as the Chicago Bulls edged the Toronto Raptors, 90-88, after surviving a fourth-quarter collapse.

Brown took a feed on the left wing from Brent Barry, who passed up an open jumper from the top of the key. Brown's shot caromed off the rim, bounced in the air and dropped through the net, giving the Bulls their first two-game winning streak this year.

"Those are nice rims," Brown said. "The last play was supposed to be a pick-and-roll. I found myself open with the clock going down. Luck was on our side. I've never hit a game-winning shot my whole life."

"Brent made a great decision to pass off and we all said the Lord's prayer for that last bounce," Chicago coach Tim Floyd added.

Brown got the shot off with less than a second remaining. The Toronto players stared in disbelief as it settled into the net.

"I think they expected me to take the shot and they rotated over," Barry said. "It's a shot Randy is certainly comfortable taking. "That's why I didn't force the shot. I knew Randy was open in the corner. That was one of the ugliest and sweetest rolls I have ever seen."

Chicago earned its first home victory with a 94-77 triumph over Charlotte on Saturday. The Raptors lost for the first time in three games at the new Air Canada Centre.

"The last five seconds seemed to go on forever," Toronto forward John Wallace said. "You've got to credit Brent Barry with his calm to pass it off and they made the play."

The Bulls appeared headed for another easy win as Kornel David hit two foul shots with 2:12 remaining in the third period to cap a 15-0 run and give Chicago a 68-51 lead.

The Bulls shot 60 percent in the quarter and outscored the Raptors, 31-15, after trailing 43-41 at the half. Chicago appeared to take control by working the shot clock and holding the Raptors to one shot on the offense end.

"It was a great win," Floyd said. "I'm happy with how we won. I'm satisfied because this team has not won two in a row. Our intensity is getting better."

"We can't take anybody for granted," added Toronto guard Dee Brown. "They know how to play big games. Until somebody beats them, they're still the champs in my mind."

But the Bulls came apart in the fourth quarter, scoring just nine points. They did not hit a jumper in the period, scoring three baskets in the lane and three foul shots.

After David's layup gave the Bulls a 74-58 lead with 11:42 remaining, they did not score again for more than six minutes.

Toronto got back in the game with a 13-0 run, closing within 74-71 on rookie Vince Carter's basket with 6:06 remaining. The Bulls ended their drought on Dickey Simpkins' dunk with 5:29 to play, but Toronto tied it at 76-76 on Dee Brown's foul shot with 2:30 remaining.

After Toni Kukoc hit two foul shots to give the Bulls an 81-78 lead with 38 seconds remaining, the Raptors forced overtime on Dee Brown's 3-pointer seven seconds later.

The Bulls set up for the last shot, but never had the chance as Harper lost the ball out of bounds with seven-tenths of a second remaining. Doug Christie missed a baseline jumper at the buzzer for the Raptors.

"We let it get away from us, but you've got to give credit to Toronto," Barry said. "They fought back and played with a lot of energy and they used the crowd. We should try to learn from them. We hung in there and luckily came away with a desperately-needed win."

Dee Brown converted another 3-pointer with 42 seconds to play in the extra session, giving the Raptors an 88-86 lead. But Ron Harper answered 15 seconds later, making a fallaway jumper in the lane.

Dee Brown missed a jumper on Toronto's ensuing possession and Kukoc rebounded with five seconds remaining, setting up Randy Brown's heroics.

Barry had 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Bulls, while Kukoc added 18 points and Randy Brown and Simpkins each contributed 17.

Kevin Willis scored 19 points and Wallace added 14 for the Raptors, who won their first two games at the Air Canada Centre against Milwaukee and Vancouver.

Chicago increased its lead in the all-time series to 11-2.
