With the score tied at 100 and only 0.9 seconds left in overtime, the Chicago Bulls needed a quick strike to knock off the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday.

For Taj Gibson, that was more than enough time to get the job done.

The Bulls forward took the inbounds pass and split two Lakers defenders on his way to hitting the game-winning layup.

While watching it live, it was unclear as to whether or not he got the shot off in time. Replays clearly showed that he beat the buzzer, and his layup gave the Bulls a 102-100 victory.
