The third quarter of Bulls-Hawks ended with yet another close score, as Chicago leads 69-67. Carlos Boozer drove to break a tie with seconds left, and Game 4 in Atlanta is up for grabs with 12 minutes left.
Boozer has 18 points and six rebounds, providing Derrick Rose's 21 points and eight assists some considerable backup. The Bulls have regained their edges from the line and in the paint, outrebounding Atlanta 32 to 26; Joakim Noah leads with nine boards.
Joe Johnson has 22 points and four assists for the Hawks, while Josh Smith is four assists away from a triple double. Then again, if it weren't for four or five ill-advised (literally, by Hawks fans) deep field goal attempts, the Hawks might have been able to lead for their third-straight period.
