Whenever the Bulls play the Boston Celtics, you know you're in for a great game. Their January 18 contest was no different.
It was a highly contested game throughout, and the Celtics were able to take a two-point lead late in the fourth. A Kirk Hinrich jumper tied the game with just a few ticks left and sent it to overtime.
Boston and Chicago essentially traded baskets during the overtime period, changing leads seven times prior to the Bulls' last possession of the game.
With just over nine seconds left, the Bulls inbounded and struggled to get the ball into a shooter's hand.
It wasn't until Noah found Carlos Boozer, who then bounced it to Belinelli near the paint, that the Bulls were able to make an attempt.
And what an attempt it was.
Belinelli spun off his right foot and hung in the air to make one awkward-looking shot; a shot that gave the Bulls the lead and won them the game, 100-99.
The only thing that makes this better is Bulls commentator Stacey King's line of "I like my meatballs spicy!"
