But, it was Chicago Bulls' Nate Robinson who rallied the side from 14 points down with four minutes to go to force triple overtime and eventually break the Nets though. Robinson had a total 34 points, 23 of which were in the fourth quarter which is just one shy of Michael Jordan's team record for most points in a quarter by a Bull in a playoff game.
276 points in total were scored as both teams broke their team playoff scoring records, but crucially it was the Bulls who came out on top.
