Nate Robinson scored 34 points, and the Chicago Bulls wiped out a 14-point deficit late in regulation and beat the Brooklyn Nets 142-134 in triple overtime Saturday and take a 3-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.
The Bulls were trailing 109-95 with less than 4 minutes to go in the fourth quarter when Robinson put the Bulls on his back and carried them to the wild victory.
He scored all but five of his points after the third quarter, including the first 12 in a 14-0 run that wiped out that deficit. Then, with 2 seconds left in the first overtime, he banked in what looked as if it would the winning jumper over Deron Williams.
Instead, Joe Johnson answered with one of his own to tie it at 121 and send it into a second overtime. The Bulls had a chance to win it in the closing seconds, but Joakim Noah got blocked, and the game went to a third overtime tied at 127.
The Bulls then finally took control for good after Williams (32 points) drove for a layup to pull Brooklyn to 133-130 -- the only points for him after regulation -- with 3 minutes left in the game.
Luol Deng answered with a basket to make it a five-point game, and Nazr Mohammed came up with two baskets in the final 32 seconds to help preserve the win.
He scored on a jump hook, then grabbed the rebound and scored with 19 seconds left after Carlos Boozer made a free throw and missed the second, making it 140-134.
