Bulls beat Nets 99-93 in Game 7NEW YORK - Joakim Noah climbed over the baseline seats, his foot that hurt so much two weeks ago that he feared he couldn’t play looking pain-free as he embraced his mother.
The first Game 7 in Brooklyn belonged not to the Nets, but to the guy who played here in high school.
“I’ll remember this for the rest of my life,” Noah said.
Injured, ill and just as determined as ever, the Chicago Bulls beat the Nets 99-93 on Saturday night to win the first-round series.
Noah had 24 points and 14 rebounds, and Marco Belinelli also scored 24 points to help the Bulls advance to a second-round series against defending champion Miami that starts Monday night.
