Nets Take Series Lead in Triple Overtime Thriller

In one of the craziest playoff games in NBA history, the Nets blew the game three times, and still were able to pull out the win with one of the most unlikely lineups on the floor at the end. Eight players fouled out, Chauncey Billups hit a miracle Reggie Miller-ish half court shot, and the Nets missed coutless important free throws. Brian Scalabrine was the hero with a career-high 17 points, on 6 for 7 shooting, including 4 for 4 from downtown, the biggest one giving the Nets a four point lead with 41 seconds left in the third overtime. Richard Jefferson finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds, and Kenyon Martin finished with 22 points and 9 boards, despite fouling out with more than 2 minutes left in regulation.
