NBA Playoffs: Bulls avoid elimination

Chicago Bulls avoided a possible playoffs elimination with a 102-87 win over the Detroit Pistons yesterday.

NBA Playoffs: Bulls avoid eliminationLuol Deng scored 25 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as the Bulls avoided their first playoff sweep in 20 years. Kirk Hinrich and Ben Gordon got 19 points, Ben Wallace, who has been with the pistons for 6 years, before going to Chicago this season, pitched in 11 and 17 rebounds, and helped the Bulls avoid the collapse after taking the lead, contrary to game three.

For the Pistons Chauncey Billups put 23 points in the basket and eight assists, while Tayshaun Prince added 18 points and Rasheed Wallace 14. Defense was the problematic point in the Pistons' team - in the last 22 playoff games Detroit did not allow their opponents to reach triple digits. Not this time, and the Bulls' lead went as high as 23 points late in the third quarter.

The top seeds head home for game five on Wednesday.
