This Eastern Conference Finals has been exciting, but unfortunately the Chicago Bulls, might also be short lived.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for 12 points in the final two minutes of overtime as the Miami Heat defeated Chicago 101-93 to take a 3-1 in the series Tuesday night at American Airlines Arena.
The Bulls had their chances, but couldn't pull away. Luol Deng threw a bad pass to Joakim Noah on an inbounds play, and Derrick Rose turned the ball over on the next possession, as the Heat pulled away.
It was a back and forth game, and the Heat were able to get the victory mainly due to Bulls' mistakes, and Chris Bosh and LeBron James's clutch play.
James led the Heat with 35 points on 11-of-26 shooting, while Bosh added 22 points.
Mike Miller scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting for the Heat, who will finally gave the Heat the playoff performance that they have been seeking for weeks.
The Bulls needed bench scoring like they had in Game One, but didn't get it. Taj Gibson only played 10 minutes and didn't score. With Chicago looking tired at the end of regulation, it might have been too late to put the rested Gibson in the game.
Rose led Chicago with 23 points and finished 8-of-26 from the field, but was scoreless in overtime.
Carlos Boozer and Deng each scored 20 points.
