|Bulls Beat Jazz in London
|LONDON (AP) -- James Johnson sank a fade-away jump shot from the baseline at the buzzer to give the Chicago Bulls a 102-101 win over the Utah Jazz in an NBA preseason game on Tuesday.
Johnson, who finished with 18 points, got the rebound after teammate Derrick Byars missed a shot from the top of the key.
Luol Deng, who was raised in London after his family fled war-torn Sudan, impressed early and also finished with 18 points at sold-out O2 Arena. He left the game in the third quarter and did not return.
Jannero Pargo scored 16 points for the Bulls.
Paul Milsap led the Jazz with 18 points while Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews had 16 each.
