Deng 2nd Straight Double Double in Heartbreaker

Luol Deng had his second straight 20+ point and 10+ rebound double double last night, but it wasn’t enough as the Bulls went down 98-97 to the Denver Nuggets on a Carmelo Anthony buzzer beater.

With Chicago leading 97-96, John Lucas III missed two free throws with 12.9 seconds remaining, setting up the Nuggets’ last shot. They inbounded to Carmelo who shook Deng and drained a 23 foot buzzer beater in his grill to win the game.

Luol finished with 24 points and 11 rebounds, shooting an efficient 9/17 from the field and 6/7 from the line. He added 1 assist and 1 steal whilst playing just under 41 minutes.
