The Chicago Bulls came into Monday night needing a road win to avoid falling into a 0-2 hole against the Brooklyn Nets. They got a great effort from the bench unit and were clearly pretty excited about it.

And before you ask, no, Derrick Rose did not suit up for the Bulls in their 90-82 victory over the Nets. But he did stand up and offer his moral support.

Joakim Noah was perhaps the biggest reason for the Bulls' strong effort in Game 2. Despite playing through a painful foot injury, Noah was still able to bring his usual hustle and passion.

All that allowed Chicago to even the series with a 90-82 win.

In the second game of the night, the Memphis Grizzlies tried to even their series with the Los Angeles Clippers. It didn't start so great due to the fact that Zach Randolph simply could not hold onto the basketball.

This got worse for the Grizzlies before they got better in the GIF department. Tony Allen tried to sneak a layup past Eric Bledsoe and, well, that didn't turn out well.

Don't worry, Tony Allen got his revenge. But not before Kenny Smith provided the halftime entertainment with his mad dribbling skills. Check out that mean handle.

I said that Tony Allen would get his revenge, didn't I? Well here he is throwing down a nasty alley-oop for the and-one over Ronny Turiaf.

And it wouldn't be a Clippers-Grizzlies game without Zach Randolph and Blake Griffin going at it in the post. This one got a little more, uh, physical than usual.

Oh and of course we had a referee fall down, which is always hilarious. Watch where you're going, ref.

It was an incredible game between the Clippers and Grizzlies but in the end, it was Chris Paul. Point God. CP3. What else can you say?
