If you told a Chicago Bulls fan in September the team would be running game-winning plays for Mike Dunleavy they likely would recoil in horror, but against the Milwaukee Bucks the veteran sharpshooter got it done with a little help from the backboard.

Down two with 16.2 seconds to go, Chicago's Joakim Noah won a jump ball and Kirk Hinrich pushed it down the court before finding Dunleavy coming loose off of a Noah screen. The Bucks had 5.8 seconds to respond, but Noah blocked O.J. Mayo's attempt.

The win pushes Chicago to 9-12 while Milwaukee fell to an Eastern Conference-worst 5-18.
