Triple overtime required as Bulls eventually overcome the Nets in classic.
In what was a thrilling game at the United Center on Saturday night, the Chicago Bulls eventually overcame the Brooklyn Nets to seal a 142-134 win and take a 3-1 series lead.
It lasted just under four hours, and was intense from start to finish as an incredible fourth quarter comeback from the Bulls ensured they extend their lead.
Trailing by 14 points with just 2.53 left in regulation, guard Nate Robinson stepped up off the bench to score 12 consecutive points.
He led all scorers with 34 points, 23 of them coming in the fourth, while Deron Williams had 32 points for the Nets in what was ultimately a losing cause.
It was a monumental effort from both teams, who put on a real classic in Chicago. Without a doubt the best game of the playoffs thus far, this game will arguably make it into the Greatest NBA Games Ever conversation.
In a gruelling game between two Eastern Conference rivals, they will have to regroup and prepare for Game 5 in Brooklyn on Tuesday, where the Bulls have a chance of wrapping up the series.
