The Chicago Bulls went on a 39-8 run to start the second half – easily wiping out a 19-point halftime deficit – as they beat the Miami 89-78 on Thursday night, dealing a huge blow to the Heat’s playoff hopes.
As the inconsistent Chicago Bulls seek cohesiveness for the playoffs following Derrick Rose’s return, the Miami Heat remain engaged in a fight for a postseason berth.
After narrowly holding on for a win against Indiana on Friday, the Miami Heat are back on the road to face a division leading team.
Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points and the Chicago Bulls overcame a sloppy start Sunday to beat the offensively inept Miami Heat, 93-75.
Joakim Noah had 20 points and 12 rebounds, D.J. Augustin scored 22 and the Chicago Bulls beat the Miami Heat 95-88 in overtime Sunday after Jimmy Butler blocked LeBron James at the end of regulation.
With LeBron James watching from the bench in a suit and tie, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade powered the Miami Heat to a 93-79 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.
Dwyane Wade is limping around in obvious pain. LeBron James’ shooting percentage is down. Shane Battier and Ray Allen have struggled to get anything going from 3-point range.
LeBron James came on strong down the stretch to finish with 25 points, Chris Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds, and the Miami Heat followed up the most lopsided playoff win in franchise history with a 104-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
