The Orlando Magic and the Chicago Bulls haven't played each other since back in mid-January, but neither team or their fans will forget that thrilling triple overtime game that the Bulls eventually won 128-125.
The Magic made 51% of their field goals in the game, but the Bulls were able to counter that by making 20 of their 23 free throws. The Magic actually had a chance to win it late in the third overtime, but Glen Davis had his shot blocked with less than two seconds left and the Bulls held on for the win.
All-Star Joakim Noah was once again the Bulls' top performer as he was able to post a season-high 26 points and pulled down a whopping 19 rebounds in the win. Shooting guard Jimmy Butler also had a solid all-around game and ended up with 21 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks. Backup point guard D.J. Augustin had 19 points and nine assists off of the bench for Chicago.
Magic rookie shooting guard Victor Oladipo had a fantastic shooting night in the losing effort, scoring a career-best 35 points on 15-of-24 shooting and also adding eight assists for the hosts. Point guard Jameer Nelson made just three of his 13 three-point attempts in the game, but he did end up with 31 points and 10 assists. Tobias Harris also had one of his better games of the season, scoring 22 points and bringing down 16 rebounds in the loss.
