Brooklyn Nets/Chicago Bulls: Game 4
- Feel like this series has been impossible to predict because we do not know which Bulls team will show up.
- Finally got a “fight” in the playoffs. Not the series I would have predicted, but I will take it!
- Nate Robinson is singlehandedly bringing the Bulls back in this game. My NBA history is not good, but has there ever been a better performance by a player off the bench? I know Goran Dragic scored a ton against the Spurs in the fourth quarter of a playoff game a few years ago, but the magnitude was not this big.
- I guess Deron Williams is no Chris Paul. Actually, by that (misguided) logic, Williams is no Andre Miller either.
- First overtime game of this postseason! Bulls and Nets trying to match the excitement bar set by the Warriors and Nuggets. This time it is the Bulls with a ridiculous comeback, but they are able to finish it off and hold on to force OT.

SHAKE HIM OFF
One of the great things that has come from the Brooklyn Nets/Chicago Bulls series is the re-emergence of Bulls guard Nate Robinson. In the third quarter of game four, Robinson showed Nets guard Deron Williams that his speed might be the most dangerous thing about him. Watch as Nate crosses Williams over and scores on a scooping lay-up:
Five-foot-nothin’ Nate Robinson had a fourth quarter for the ages on Saturday, helping the Bulls storm back and ultimately defeat the Brooklyn Nets 142-134 in triple overtime. The game wouldn’t have even made it to the first overtime had it not been for Robinson, who morphed into an unconscious offensive savant in the final quarter, pouring in 23 points as the Bulls ran off a...
Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson pretty much became a legend Saturday during the Bulls triple-OT win over the Brooklyn Nets. The Bulls were down by 14 points with just about three minutes left in the fourth quarter when Nate put the team on his back. Robinson scored 12 straight points sending the game into overtime. His 23 points in the fourth quarter nearly broke a playoff record...
After going off for 23 points in the fourth quarter of Game 4, 1 point shy of Michael Jordan’s franchise record for points in a playoff quarter, and finishing with 34 in the Bulls triple OT 142-134 thriller on Saturday afternoon, Nate Robinson likened his game to the old-school video game, NBA Jam.
According to CSN Chicago:
I always tell [Rip Hamilton], ‘I always think I’m...
Chicago Bulls/Brooklyn Nets: Game 5
- Kirk Hinrich is out for tonight. That means that the leash is off Nate Robinson for an entire game. There is no question Robinson loves to let it fly. The question becomes whether or not we will see the Robinson that lit it up at the end of Game 4 or a crazy, erratic Robinson.
- The other day I wrote about who...

It was an instant classic and perhaps the game of the 2013 NBA Playoffs when the Bulls and Nets gave us a thrilling triple-overtime in Game 4 of their series in Chicago.
It had it all - hard fouls, clutch shots, team-play on display, and a healthy does of Bulls' Nate Robinson showing passion, grit and fire on the court when he rattled off 23 points in the critical fourth...
No one is going to argue with the fact that this year’s first round of the NBA playoffs hasn’t exactly been the most exciting of all time. However, the halftime shows are really pulling out all the stops to keep the fans entertained. During halftime of Monday night’s Nets and Bulls playoff game a speed painting artist painted Deron Williams during the 20 minute break. The...
In the playoff preview section, I wrote that the Chicago Bulls must do three things to win their series against the Nets, stop one or both of Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, win on the boards and find enough ways to score. They failed in every regard in game 1, but in games 2 and 3, they have done enough in each area to take an impressive 2-1 series lead.
In game 1, Deron Williams...
Following a tough bank shot from Nate Robinson that appeared to be the game winning shot with 1.7 seconds remaining in Saturday’s Game 4 matchup between the Nets and Bulls, Joe Johnson countered with a buzzer-beating runner to tie the game at 121 and send the game to double overtime.
Nate Robinson’s bank shot with 1.7 seconds remaining in overtime:
Brook Lopez had 28 points and 10 rebounds, Deron Williams added 23 points and 10 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat Chicago 110-91 on Monday night, cutting the Bulls' lead to 3-2 in their first-round playoff series.
Andray Blatche scored 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter and Gerald Wallace had consecutive baskets down the stretch as the Nets finally pulled away in a...
