The Bulls led the Kings by 27 with 16 minutes left, 15 with nine minutes and five with one minute left.
Chicago finally saw its lead completely disappear with 30 seconds left, when DeMarcus Cousins tied the game with a layup while being fouled (though he missed the free throw.)
Then, Dwyane Wade showed why the Bulls signed him.
Wade hit a contested jumper to untie the game. Then, he stole Sacramento’s ensuing inbound pass and raced for a dunk. Following Cousins’ NBA-high 16th technical foul — which will trigger an automatic one-game suspension — Wade punctuated Chicago’s 112-107 win with a technical free throw.
