The Nate Robinson Game. Robinson scored 23 points in the 4th quarter of Game 4 of the Bulls – Nets series – a point short of tying Michael Jordan’s franchise record 24. (Watch all 23 of Robinson’s glorious points in the video above.) Robinson fouled out in double OT, finishing with 34 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds and a steal. The Bulls won in triple-overtime, 142-134.
With 7:24 remaining in the 4th, Robinson was leveled by a Gerald Wallace screen. He proceeded to score 19 of Chicago’s next 21 points. He also assisted on two baskets, including the one that tied the game at 109. The Bulls went up 2 late in overtime behind a crazy runner from Robinson, but Joe Johnson forced double-overtime.
Of course, we can not forget C.J. Watons’ role in this game. In the first half, Watson and Robinson got tangled up and were each given a technical foul. Robinson was so heated he had to go to the locker room. Then in the 4th, C.J. Watson’s missed a dunk with the Nets up 14 with just 3:17 remaining.
