Chicago Bulls on the ropes!

The white towel draped over Rasheed Wallace’s shoulder after the game seemed out of place in the Detroit Pistons’ locker room, given the way they had just fought back. The Chicago Bulls might want to throw one in, though.

The Pistons dug in, putting Chicago in a hole from which no NBA team has emerged.

Tayshaun Prince scored 23 points and Chauncey Billups added 21, and the Pistons rallied from a 19-point deficit to beat the Bulls 81-74 on Thursday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Pistons, who swept Orlando in the first round, will try to wrap up this one Sunday at the United Center.

No NBA team has won a best-of-seven series after dropping the first three games, and only three major professional teams have done that — the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1975 New York Islanders and 2004 Boston Red Sox.

So if you’re a Bulls fan, they might need you to show up in full force to even stand a chance in Game 4.
