(SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bulls will try to close out the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night when Game 5 of the series shifts back to the United Center.
The Bulls squandered a chance at a sweep on Saturday when they fell at the Bradley Center, 92-90.
Former MVP Derrick Rose turned the ball over with under 20 seconds on the clock in a tied game.
Khris Middleton was going the other way with the ball when Bucks' coach Jason Kidd called a timeout. The officials then put 1.3 seconds on the clock before the Bucks drew up a perfect inbounds play, with Jerryd Bayless cutting to the basket and Jared Dudley lobbing a pass over the defense for the winning layup as time expired.
"I put that all on me. I just wasn't paying attention to the ball," Rose said.
O.J. Mayo made four 3-pointers en route to 18 points for the Bucks, who won their first playoff game in five years. Dudley tallied 13 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo, Middleton and Bayless each had 10 points.
"As a whole we have a long ways ago," Kidd said. "But I thought with this being a character game, the group in that locker room showed a lot of character by finding a way to get a win."
Jimmy Butler ended with a playoff career-high 33 points and seven rebounds for the Bulls, who were done in by 28 turnovers. Rose was limited to 14 points after scoring 34 points in Chicago's 113-106, double-overtime victory in Game 3.
Pau Gasol recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls.
Trailing 87-79 with 4:40 to play, Rose made a layup and Butler connected from beyond the arc. Mayo made a desperation 3-pointer in between, but the basket was called off after a review.
Mayo made up for it with another 3-pointer to put the Bucks ahead 90-84 with 1:42 left. But the Bulls tied things up on Rose's 3-pointer and Gasol's three- point play with 38.4 seconds remaining.
Bayless missed a layup before Rose turned the ball over. Rose, who committed eight turnovers on Saturday, then made things worse with his lackluster defense on the winning layup.
"Can't believe it," Rose told the team's website. "Can't believe it, tell you the truth, can't believe it. I messed things up. When you give up a layup for the game winner, it's hard, it's hard. But, I swear, I'm built for it."
The Bulls did get rookie bench stud Nikola Mirotic back after he missed Game 3 with a knee injury.
The winner of this series gets the Cleveland Cavaliers, who swept the Boston Celtics on Sunday. The Cavs have question marks in the form of Kevin Love's health and J.R. Smith's suspension status.
Game 6, if necessary, will be Thursday night in Milwaukee.
