CHICAGO (AP) - One more thriller, and now, the Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics will play a decisive seventh game.
Derrick Rose scored 28 points and blocked Rajon Rondo's potential game-winner, John Salmons scored 35, and the Bulls beat the defending champions 128-127 in triple overtime Thursday night to tie this first-round series at three games apiece.
Ray Allen scored a career playoff-high 51 points for the Celtics, but the series will go back to Boston for Game 7 on Saturday after another classic battle in a series that had already seen its share of drama.
