The Chicago Bulls evened their first-round playoff series with the Celtics with a 121-118 double overtime win Sunday.

After Paul Pierce cut the Celtic deficit to 117-115 with a third-chance 3-point play with 27.3 seconds left in the second overtime, John Salmons restored Chicago's 4-point edge 0.7 seconds later. Ray Allen missed out of a timeout but the Celtics tipped the rebound to Pierce for a '3' with 19.2 seconds to go. Salmons made it 121-118 with 16.9 remaining, then blocked Pierce's '3' attempt just before the buzzer.
