  • Text size: + -

The Brooklyn Nets forced a Game 7 in their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Chicago Bulls with a 95-92 win in Game 6 in Chicago Friday night.

A balanced attack saw three Nets - Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez - tie for the team lead with 17 points in Game 6.

Williams added 11 assists, while forward Reggie Evans had 15 rebounds for Brooklyn.

Bulls guard Marco Belinelli led all scorers with 22 points and added 7 assists.

Center Joakim Noah had 14 points and 15 rebounds for Chicago, who suffered their second straight defeat after taking a 3-1 lead in the series following a triple-overtime victory last Saturday.

The Nets will return to Barclays Center for Game 7 against the Bulls Saturday night. The start time for that game has not yet been announced.

If the Nets win Game 7, they will be only the ninth team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a best-of-7 playoff series. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
