MIAMI – Nate Robinson scored 27 points, Jimmy Butler added 21 points and 14 rebounds while playing every second for the third consecutive game, and the Chicago Bulls stunned the Miami Heat 93-86 on Monday night to take Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Trailing 86-83 with 2 minutes left, the Bulls scored the final 10 points of the game to beat the Heat once again.

Joakim Noah added 13 points, Taj Gibson had 12, and Marco Belinelli added 10 for Chicago, which snapped a 27-game Miami winning streak during the regular season, and handed the Heat their first loss in their last 13 games in this one.

NBA MVP LeBron James scored 24 points for Miami, which also got 14 points from Dwyane Wade.

The Bulls were without Derrick Rose, as they've been all season. Kirk Hinrich was out again with a calf injury. Luol Deng isn't even expected to rejoin the team until today, after dealing with an illness apparently so severe that a spinal tap – and other tests since – were needed to rule out things such as meningitis.

San Antonio 129, Golden State 127, 2OT

SAN ANTONIO – Manu Ginobili’s 3-pointer from the wing with 1.2 seconds left in double overtime lifted the San Antonio Spurs to a thrilling victory over the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry’s 44 points in Game 1 of their Western Conference second round series.

The Spurs trailed by 16 points with 4 minutes left in regulation before going on an 18-2 run to close the fourth quarter and force overtime.

They trailed 127-126 with 3.9 seconds left in the second overtime before Ginobili hit his 3-pointer off a cross-court inbounds pass from Kawhi Leonard.
