Auto Update: On


One of these things is not like the others

Players with a game-winning buzzer-beater in the playoffs this decade:

  • 2015: Jerryd Bayless, Bucks
  • 2014: Damian Lillard, Blazers
  • 2014: Vince Carter, Mavs
  • 2013: LeBron James, Heat
  • 2010: Paul Pierce, Celtics

Unlikely hero for Bucks

Jerryd Bayless was 5-of-18 in the series before making his buzzer-beating layup in Game 4. It's the first playoff buzzer-beater since Damian Lillard's shot to beat the Rockets in Game 6 of the first round last season.

Bucks stun Bulls at buzzer

Somehow Jerryd Bayless shook free from Derrick Rose under the basket, getting a wide open layup to give the Bucks a Game 3 win and extend Milwaukee's season. The Bulls finished with 28 turnovers, the last one with 1.3 seconds left being the most costly. Box score

Rose wanted to take the last shot but he got the ball stripped from him. Kidd calls time out with .8 left in regulation. Game tied at 90.

Derrick Rose stepping up

After making a 3-pointer to slice the Bucks' lead in half, Derrick Rose found Pau Gasol in transition for a basket and a foul. Game 4 is tied 90-90 with 37.9 seconds left. Milwaukee needs a win to avoid elimination. Follow live

Courtside fan in New Orleans shouts to Steph Curry as he uses the scorer's table as a base to get loose: "I hate you ... but I respect you"

Bucks lose critical points

O.J. Mayo appeared to beat the shot-clock buzzer with a deep 3 with 3 minutes left, but upon further review the shot was late. With the 3 points wiped out, the Bucks' lead is down to 3 with 2:18 left. Follow live

Jimmy Butler and Kawhi Leonard have hijacked the 1st round of these playoffs. And they're totally relentless on both ends of the court.
