If you would have told Bulls fans that LeBron James would net 39 points and be 2 assists away from a triple-double, most fans would have said the Bulls would be down 3-0 today. But the Bulls shot it better and turned it over less than the Cavs and get their first win in the series with a nail-biting 108-106 victory. The Bulls were up 21 at one point, but the Cavs and LeBron came back in the 4th with a fury.
- Derrick Rose. 31 points on 50% shooting is great, but the 7 assists against 0 turnovers is just as good.
- Kirk Hinrich. Onions. May have missed a crucial free throw but scored 27 points on 9-12 shooting, including hitting all 4 of his 3s. Also added 5 helpers and 5 boards.
- Joakim Noah. Game-high 15 rebounds, 2 blocks, 5 helpers and 10 points.
