“Kind of like the old-school game NBA Jam,” Robinson said “You make a couple, and the rim’s on fire or the ball’s on fire. I feel like that at times.”
Robinson couldn’t of found a better way to explain his 4th quarter performance in the 4 hour matinee game between the Bulls and the Nets. He was “on fire” as he scored 23 points (12 straight) in final quarter of regulation with an assortment of jumpers, layups, floaters, 3 pointers and free throws. The only thing missing was a “boom shaka laka” dunk. The 23 points was also 1 shy of tying MJ for most points in a quarter by a Bull in a playoff game.
“I tease Coach a lot because it seems like every shot I shoot, he’s mad regardless. You got to hope to make them, and then he really can’t say too much.”
Despite a tech for almost getting into a fight with CJ Watson in the first half, almost getting knocked by a Gerald Wallace screen and fouling out in the 2nd OT, there was nothing negative Coach Thibodeau could say about Nate the Great’s great performance in GM4.
Nate was on “speed mode,” “on fire,” and in “unlimited turbo” mode and he didn’t even have to “tap any button 7 times and hold Up + B + Y until tip-off.
Nate’s final stat line was 34 points, 4 assists, 2 steals, 1 rebound, 3 3-pointers in 28 minutes. The final score of the game was Bulls 142 – Nets 134.
