(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Ben Gordon scored 31 points, including the game-winning fadeaway jumper with less than three seconds remaining to give the Chicago Bulls a 92-90 win over the Indiana Pacers.
Gordon drove to the right side of the court and then spun in toward the lane, getting the shot over the outstretched arm of Mike Dunleavy to score with 2.8 seconds remaining.
Jermaine O'Neal had a chance to tie, but he missed a jumper as time expired. O'Neal had kept the pacers in the game, scoring their final 14 points. He led Indiana with 39 points and 14 rebounds. Dunleavy added 23 as the Pacers suffered their 14th loss in their last 16 games.
Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich added 14 points apiece for the Bulls with Deng grabbing ten rebounds. The Bulls have won nine of their last twelve.
With the defeat, Indiana falls into sole possession of ninth place in the eastern conference, a half-game behind seventh-place New Jersey and Orlando.
Their three-game homestand comes to an end on Tuesday when they welcome Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to Conseco Fieldhouse.
