|Bulls Hang on to Beat Cavaliers
|CHICAGO (AP) -- LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers can forget about sweeping the Bulls out of the playoffs.
Derrick Rose scored 31 points, Kirk Hinrich added 27 and Chicago hung to beat the top-seeded Cavaliers 108-106 Thursday night in Game 3 of their first-round series after watching a 21-point lead dwindle to one.
James scored 13 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter and nailed a 3-pointer with 3.8 seconds left that made it 107-106. The Cavaliers immediately fouled Chicago's Luol Deng, who hit the first free throw but missed the second. Cleveland's Anthony Parker got the rebound and raced up the right side but missed a 3 at the buzzer, and the Bulls escaped with the win.
They will try to tie the best-of-seven series on Sunday.
