LAS VEGAS — Denzel Valentine provided a thrilling finish for the NBA Summer League.
Valentine hit the tying 3-pointer in the final second of regulation, then made a jumper at the buzzer in overtime to give the Chicago Bulls an 84-82 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.
Valentine was scoreless on 0-for-6 shooting through three-quarters, but he proved that fortunes change quickly in Las Vegas. His 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left forced the extra period after Tyus Jones had just given Minnesota a 77-74 lead on a 3 with 3.6 seconds to go.
It was tied again on Xavier Silas’ 3 with 11.7 seconds remaining in OT, but Valentine, the college player of the year from Michigan State, worked the clock down before making his spinning jumper in the lane as the Bulls finished 7-0.
