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.
The little engine that could finally threw a gear. The Chicago Bulls might have been the most heartwarming tale going this postseason, but it’s over.
Miami HEAT forward LeBron James has been named to the NBA’s 2012-13 All-Defensive First Team. This marks the fifth time in James’ career that he has earned NBA All-Defensive First Team honors, all in consecutive seasons.
The suggestion that he’s a flopper drew a grin as wide as his wingspan from LeBron James. Miami’s superstar shot down the accusations from the Chicago Bulls, saying they reminded him of the days when some claimed he was overrated
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.
A picture of what you may call a very passionate Heat fan at Wednesday night’s playoff game has gone viral.
The Miami Heat have been in this less-than-ideal spot before. They trailed Indiana in the Eastern Conference semifinals last season, needed to win a pair of elimination games against Boston in the East finals and then dropped Game 1 of the NBA Finals to Oklahoma City.

As the Miami Heat prepare to take the floor Monday for its second round playoff matchup against the Chicago Bulls, the biggest question surrounding the series is who Chicago will have on the floor for Game 1.
With the Big 3 back and the league’s best record clinched – as well as the winningest season in franchise history – the Miami Heat don’t have much left to do other than tune up for the playoffs.
