This Is A Team! Bulls Finish Off Nets 99-93
Joakim Noah and Marco Belinelli each scored 24 points and Carlos Boozer added 17 as the Bulls completed a remarkable seven game playoff series win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night. Overcoming the loss of several key players to injury, the Bulls triumphed 4 games to 3 despite battles with the flu and a foot injury that hampered Joakim Noah throughout. In game seven, the Bulls built a 17 point halftime lead, but had to hold off a second half charge from the Nets, who were led by a 24 point performance from Deron Williams. The Bulls effort was highlighted by another inspiring performance from Noah, who added 14 hard fought rebounds to go along with his 24 points in the game. The Bulls now head to Miami to take on Lebron James and the Miami Heat. Game one in the Eastern Conference semifinal series is set for Monday night.
