James hits jumper at buzzer, lifts Cavaliers over Bulls
CHICAGO — LeBron James hit a jumper from the corner at the buzzer to give the Cleveland Cavaliers an 86-84 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, tying the Eastern Conference semifinal series at 2-2.
James finished with 25 points to help the Cavaliers win in another wild finish, returning the favor after Chicago took Game 3 on Derrick Rose’s banked 3-pointer at the buzzer.
This time, James got whistled for an offensive foul when he elbowed Mike Dunleavy Jr. That led to a tying layup for Rose with just under 10 seconds left.
But instead of going to overtime, James ended it with the jumper from the corner over Jimmy Butler.
Game 5 is Tuesday night in Cleveland.
