Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Ron Mercer scored 30 points, including two free throws with 14 seconds to play in overtime, as the Chicago Bulls snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 93-90 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

"Any given day, it doesn't matter who we play," Mercer said. "Just so we go out and play together like we did tonight."

After Mercer's free throws, the Bulls had to survive a pair of tying attempts by the Hornets. Jamal Mashburn had a chance with five seconds to play but his open shot at the top of the key hit the back of the rim.

The teams battled for the rebound and a jump ball was called with 2.8 seconds to play. The ball was tipped to the left baseline to a wide-open P.J. Brown, who stepped behind the arc and fired. But his shot rimmed in and out of the basket as time expired.

"I guess it just wasn't meant to be," Brown said. "We've been struggling with this team all year. I don't know if we just take them too lightly or they believe that they can beat the Hornets. They were just due to get us."

The Bulls avoided a sweep of the four-game season series with their first win in three overtime games this season. One was a triple-overtime setback at Charlotte on January 9.

Bulls rookie Jamal Crawford scored 10 of his 11 points in the fourth quarter but the biggest point of his career came in overtime.

With the game tied 90-90, Crawford stepped to the line for two free throws. His first free throw rimmed out, but the 21-year-old stepped back, shook his head and took a deep breath before knocking down the second shot for a 91-90 lead with 42.5 seconds to play.

"We played Charlotte tough all year," Crawford said. "So we liked our chances coming in tonight. The coach is showing more confidence in me and it's making me become a better player."

"Jamal really stepped up for us tonight," Mercer said, who shot 12-of-22. "Each night we've had different guys step up and tonight it was Jamal."

After Charlotte's Elden Campbell missed a jumper, Mercer made his foul shots.

After trading baskets throughout the game and trailing 45-44 at the break, Chicago got a pair of 3-pointers from Crawford to tie the game at 80-80 with 2:55 to play.

Ron Artest hit a jumper after David Wesley hit a pair from the line, Crawford netted another jumper to give the Bulls an 84-82 lead with 59 seconds to play.

Mashburn hit a 10-footer with 35 seconds left to tie the game. Elton Brand missed a potential game-winning 12-foot jumper and the teams went to overtime.
