The Chicago Bulls were down and just about out in this one. Go figure, Nate Robinson led them back.

Robinson scored 34 points, and host Chicago wiped out a 14-point deficit late in regulation and beat the Brooklyn Nets 142-134 in triple overtime Saturday to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.

The Bulls were trailing 109-95 in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter when Robinson went on one of his tears, carrying his team to an improbable victory with a stretch that reminded the streaky point guard of a video game.

"I always think I'm on fire, kind of like the old school game NBA Jam," he said.

Robinson scored all but five of his points after the third quarter, including the first 12 in a 14-0 run that wiped out Brooklyn's late lead. Then, with 2 seconds left in the first overtime, he banked in a go-ahead jumper over Deron Williams.

Joe Johnson answered with one of his own to send it to another overtime, tied at 121. The Bulls had a chance to win in the closing seconds of the second extra session, but Joakim Noah was blocked, and the game went to a third OT.

Thunder 104, Rockets 101: Kevin Durant scored 41 points in his first game without injured All-Star Russell Westbrook, and Oklahoma City fought off host Houston's late rally for a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven playoff series.

Durant scored 27 points in the first half, and the Thunder led by 26 points before a big third-quarter rally by the Rockets put them within striking distance. Houston regained the lead with about 4 minutes left and was up with less than a minute remaining. But Durant hit a 3-pointer seconds later to put Oklahoma City on top 100-99.

Harden scored 30 points to lead the Rockets in the first playoff game in Houston since 2009.

Westbrook was injured in Game 2 and had season-ending knee surgery Saturday. It was the first time Durant had ever played without Westbrook, who hadn't missed a game in his career before Saturday.

Grizzlies 104, Clippers 83: Marc Gasol had 24 points and 13 rebounds, and host Memphis beat Los Angeles to even their first-round playoff series at 2-all.

Zach Randolph finished with 24 points and nine rebounds as the Grizzlies won their second straight to ensure another stop in Memphis for Game 6. Mike Conley had 15 points and 13 assists, and Tayshaun Prince scored 15 in his best game of the series.

Hawks 90, Pacers 69: Al Horford had 26 points and 16 rebounds as host Atlanta turned things around dramatically in its playoff series against Indiana, blowing out the Pacers in Game 3.

Playing with much more urgency than they did in two double-digit losses at Indianapolis, the Hawks raced to a 54-30 halftime lead. Game 4 is Monday night in Atlanta, where the Hawks have won 12 straight over the Pacers dating to 2006.

The Hawks changed up their lineup -- inserting 7-footer Johan Petro at center and bringing 3-point specialist Kyle Korver off the bench -- for more favorable matchups.

David West led Indiana with 18 points. Paul George, who averaged 25 points in the first two games, was held to 16 on 4-of-11 shooting.

Lakers-Spurs: Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said Metta World Peace won't play in Game 4 of their first-round series Sunday. World Peace will join Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jodie Meeks on the Lakers' crowded sideline. World Peace went scoreless in Game 3 hours after getting fluid drained from a cyst behind his left knee.

The Spurs will be without starting center Tiago Splitter, who sprained his left ankle in Game 3.
