CHICAGO — Chauncey Billups made the go-ahead free throw with six-tenths of a second left and the Denver Nuggets beat the Chicago Bulls, 90-89, on Tuesday night after a potential winning jumper by Brad Miller was overturned following a replay review.

Billups was fouled by Kirk Hinrich on a drive and then intentionally missed the second free throw after making the first to break the tie. Joakim Noah grabbed the rebound and the Bulls called timeout with three-tenths of a second left.

After the timeout, Miller caught the inbounds pass from Hinrich and, in one motion, buried a jumper from the top of the key. The crowd went wild. So did the Bulls, but it didn't last.

After a 10-minute review, the officials ruled that time had expired.
