In the NBA playoffs, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson each scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets again avoided elimination, beating the short-handed Chicago Bulls 95-92 Thursday to tie their first-round series at 3. The series goes back to Brooklyn on Saturday. The winner gets Miami in the second round.

Despite coach Mark Johnson being fined $25,000 by the NBA for making public comments in an attempt to influence officials, Golden State won their first playoff series since 2007 beating Denver 92-88.
