The only shots Nate Robinson fears are the kind he takes at the doctor's office.
He doesn't like needles.
He welcomes crunch time.
Robinson showed no fear down the stretch, scoring 12 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter, and Luol Deng finished with 19 after a slow start to lead the Chicago Bulls to an 87-86 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
Robinson, who hit the go-ahead basket the previous night in a two-point win at Brooklyn, came up big down the stretch, offsetting a season-high 27 points by Orlando's Beno Udrih.
Robinson scored nine points during an 18-4 run that turned a five-point deficit into an 87-78 lead. Deng hit two 3-pointers during that stretch, and Robinson capped it with a long jumper as he crashed to the floor with 3:51 left.
The Bulls did not score again, but they managed to pull this one out, anyway, sending the Magic to their 12th loss in 13 games.
''I'm not afraid to fail,'' Robinson said. ''You'...

The 12th men in the NBA sometimes catch a lot of slack. A lot of them never really get to play, just sitting at the end of the bench for the majority of the season.
However, one thing fans need to realize is that they are not better than any one in the NBA. It’s fair to say that there are some college players and international players better than some NBA players, but someone...

Beno Udrih and Nate Robinson were trading body blows as the Magic and Bulls played Friday night. There was no knockout punch to deliver. Just a major whiff from the Magic and Udrih.
Orlando had the final possession, down by a point and got the ball to the guy they wanted. That would be the veteran point guard from Slovenia who scored 18 of his 27 points in the third quarter,...
