Deng Saves Bulls at Buzzer in OT
CHICAGO (AP) -- Luol Deng hit a follow-up shot at the buzzer in overtime and the Chicago Bulls beat the Toronto Raptors 102-101 on Saturday night to clinch a playoff spot with their NBA-leading 40th victory.

Chicago's C.J. Watson drove for the basket and Toronto's James Johnson blocked the attempt, but Deng got the ball and put it in the basket, a play officials reviewed to make sure it was in before the buzzer.

Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls, Deng added 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Watson had 23 points.

Johnson, an ex-Bull, scored 20 points for Toronto. Jose Calderon also had 20 points and 10 assists, and Gary Forbes had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors, but missed two free throws with 6.4 seconds left in overtime.
