MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jerryd Bayless made a layup at the buzzer off an inbounds pass, lifting Milwaukee to a 92-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls Saturday. The victory draws the Bucks within 3-1 in their Eastern Conference playoff series. Bulls guard Derrick Rose walked away in frustration after trying to guard Bayless as green and white streamers descended from the Bradley Center rafters. It was the Bucks first playoff win in five years. Game 5 is Monday in Chicago.
