A pair of game-winning shots were 1-2 in the NBA's top 10 plays from Wednesday night.

In Milwaukee, Derrick Rose hit an off-balance, fadeaway jumper from just inside the 3-point line as time expired, lifting Chicago past the Bucks, 106-104. Rose finished two boards short of a triple-double with 30 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds. Upcoming unrestricted free agent Ersan Ilyasova led the way for Milwaukee with 32 points and 10 rebounds.

Jordan Farmar's triple propelled New Jersey to an upset victory over the Clippers. Down 100-98, Farmar took a Deron Williams pass and drilled a three with less than one second left. Farmar finished with 16 points, as the Nets improved to 13-27 with the 101-100 win. Blake Griffin had a double-double for the Clippers with 28 points and 17 rebounds.

Other highlights in the nightly top 10 included a no-look Andre Iguodala pass, Manu Ginobili hitting Tiago Splitter between Josh Harrellson's legs for a layup, and LeBron James throwing down a 360-dunk on a breakaway.
