Research Notes

  • With 3:16 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Nets held a 14-point lead (109-95) over the Bulls and were shooting 60.6 percent from the field. At that moment, C.J. Watson missed a wide open transition dunk, marking the turning point in the game. The Nets proceeded to shoot 25.8 percent for the remainder of the contest.

  • NEXT LEVEL: After being flattened by a Gerald Wallace screen in the fourth quarter, Nate Robinson led the Bulls on an epic comeback run. Scoring 27 combined fourth-quarter and overtime points, Robinson did most of his damage as the pick-and-roll ball handler, shooting 7-of-10 and scoring 18 of his 27 points on such plays.

  • NEXT LEVEL: Joakim Noah contained Brook Lopez on Saturday, holding him to just 2-of-12 from the field and forcing two of his four turnovers. Against other Bulls defenders, Lopez was 7-of-8 from the field.

  • The Bulls and Nets 3 OT game is tied for the second-longest postseason game in NBA history.

  • Deron Williams was pretty good through 3 quarters. But he struggled mightily down the stretch.
