Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIMay 12, 2015

The Chicago Bulls desperately needed this.

Down double digits in Game 5 at the end of the third quarter Tuesday, Nikola Mirotic threw up a prayer from beyond half court. Somehow, the rookie big man hit nothing but net, cutting the Cleveland Cavaliers' lead to just nine points.

The Cavaliers led 80-71 heading into the fourth quarter.
