The Bulls were trailing by 14 points with just under 3 minutes left in regulation but Robinson almost single-handedly got them back into the Eastern Conference quarterfinal contest with a spectacular late outburst.
The Bulls point guard came off the bench to put in 12 straight points down the stretch, eventually ending with 34 before fouling out in the second overtime.
Joakim Noah (15 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks) hit a jumper to start the third overtime and the Bulls never trailed after that.
Deron Williams pumped in 32 points and dished off 10 assists but also turned the ball over seven timed for the Nets. Brook Lopez added 26 points and 11 rebounds while Joe Johnson scored 22 for Brooklyn.
