The Chicago Bulls will try to make NBA playoff history as they attempt to become the first team to win a series after rallying from a 3-0 deficit. While nobody has triumphed after facing such a deficit, according to ESPN Research the Bulls are the ninth team in NBA history to force a Game 6 after trailing 3-0, and the fifth since 1962. With that in mind, I thought it might be helpful to take a quick look at the other four teams of the modern era that forced a Game 6. Let's compare their situations with the one facing the Bulls tonight in their Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Pistons (ESPN, 8 p.m. ET):
