MILWAUKEE — Jerryd Bayless made a layup at the buzzer off an inbounds pass, lifting Milwaukee to a 92-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, drawing the Bucks within 3-1 in their Eastern Conference playoff series.

With 1.3 seconds left, Jared Dudley threw a high arcing pass toward the basket from side court. Bayless caught the ball and quickly threw up the layup for the game-winning basket.

Bulls guard Derrick Rose walked away in frustration after trying to guard Bayless as green and white streamers descended from the Bradley Center rafters. The Bucks had won their first playoff game in five years.

Chicago had a chance to win with the game tied at 90. But Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton tipped a dribble away from Rose to force a steal.

Milwaukee Coach Jason Kidd called a timeout to set up the final play.

Game 5 is Monday in Chicago.

NETS 91, HAWKS 83: Brook Lopez had 22 points and 13 rebounds, Thaddeus Young added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and host Brooklyn beat Atlanta to cut the Hawks’ lead to 2-1 in the Eastern Conference series.

The Nets seized control with an 18-0 run spanning the third and fourth quarters after the Hawks grabbed their first lead since the opening basket, then went on to beat the No. 1 seed for the first time in seven meetings this season.

Bojan Bogdanovic added 19 points for the eighth-seeded Nets, who can tie the series with another victory in Atlanta on Monday night in Game 4.

DeMarre Carroll scored a playoff career-high 22 points for the Hawks, who were denied what would have been their second 3-0 lead since moving to Atlanta in 1968.

Paul Millsap added 18 points and 17 rebounds.

Warriors 109, Pelicans 98: Stephen Curry hit six 3-pointers during a 39-point night, and Golden State cruised to victory over host New Orleans, completing a sweep of their first-round playoff series.

Klay Thompson added 25 points for the Warriors, the NBA’s top overall seed, who will wait to host Game 1 of their second-round series against the winner of the Portland-Memphis matchup.

Draymond Green added 22 points and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which raced to a 67-54 halftime lead and widened the gap to as many as 24 points in the second half before the desperate Pelicans briefly cut their deficit to single digits in the final minutes.

Anthony Davis had 36 points and 11 rebounds to close out what has been a remarkable third season for the Pelicans’ 22-year-old franchise player. He just didn’t have quite enough help.
