NBA: Chicago 89, Utah 88

March 8, 2013 at 11:13 PM

CHICAGO, March 8 (UPI) -- A 3-point shot by Marco Belinelli with 5.9 seconds to play Friday lifted Chicago to an 89-88 victory over Utah.

Belinelli barely kept his feet behind the arc when he launched the shot that produced the last of his 22 points and allowed the Bulls to snap a two-game skid.

The winning 3-pointer was one of just four made by the Bulls in 17 attempts. Chicago won despite shooting only 37 percent from the field.

Carlos Boozer also had 22 points for Chicago while Nate Robinson contributed 14 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

Al Jefferson, who had missed Utah's previous three games with a sprained ankle, returned to score 23 points. The Jazz have dropped three in a row.
