Marco Belinelli made a 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left to lift the Chicago Bulls to an 89-88 victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

Belinelli missed a potential tying jumper, but got a second chance when Joakim Noah grabbed the rebound. Jimmy Butler then swung the ball back out to Belinelli in the corner, and he connected on the fallaway 3 to put Chicago in front to stay.

Gordon Hayward missed a jumper on the other end for Utah, and Butler secured the rebound as the horn sounded.

Belinelli and Carlos Boozer had 22 points apiece for Chicago, which opens a difficult three-game California road trip at the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

Al Jefferson scored 23 points in his return to the lineup for the Jazz.
