The Miami Heat dealt the Chicago Bulls their first back-to-back loss since February, mainly due to Chris Bosh's 32 points, in a 95-85 victory at American Airlines Arena.
The Bulls are in a 2-1 hole now, and lost despite the 26-point and 17-rebound showing by Carlos Boozer.
Boozer was outdueld by Bosh thanks to the Miami forward's 13-of-18 shooting. Bosh was fascilitated by LeBron James who had 10 assists.
James took more of a point-forward role, as he made more of an effort to pass than shoot. James still finished with 22 points, and was a perfect nine-for-nine from the free-throw line.
Dwyane Wade shot only six-of-17 from the field, but he added nine rebounds.
As a team, Miami was out-rebounded 41-to-32, but that was basically the only category that the Bulls dominated in.
The Heat had more blocks, steals, assists, and out-shot the Bulls.
Chicago got good performances from Boozer and Derrick Rose, who each shot eight-for-19 from the field. But the Bulls shot just 42 percent from the field.
Chicago also only got one point from Joakim Noah.
Game Four will be on Tuesday in Miami.
