Big night for Nate Robinson

Nate Robinson led the Chicago Bulls to a 93-86 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

It was a gutsy performance from the former Washington star who finished with a game-high 27 points and nine assists despite being bloodied and bruised.

In the second quarter, the 5-8, 180-pound guard got steamrolled by 6-8 and 250 pound LeBron James while attempting to retrieve a loose ball. Robinson cut his lip after the collision and needed 10 stitches.

He returned in the second half and scored 24 points.

“I’ve played on some tough teams, but this one is something special,” Robinson told the Chicago Tribune. “It feels like we’ve been playing together for 10 years. I told Coach, we just love to play for each other.”
