Trailing the Bulls by one point with 14.5 seconds left, the Wizards called timeout. Both teams discussed strategy.
Apparently, Chicago center Cristiano Felicio needed a little longer to get the Bulls’ plan.
While nine players began the critical possession on the other side of the court, Felicio sprinted in late. Defending 4-on-5, Chicago committed a shooting foul and lost the lead.
However, on the other end, Washington then fouled Walt Lemon Jr., who made the game-winning free throws in the Bulls’ 115-114 victory.
K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:
Gotta tank harder than that.
