>>Heat Dominate Fourth Quarter To Down Bulls
(Chicago, IL) -- LeBron James scored 25 points with eight rebounds and seven assists as the Heat downed the Bulls, 104-94, to take a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinals series. The game was tied at 70 going into the fourth quarter when Miami outscored Chicago 34-24 behind 20 combined points from James and Chris Bosh. Bosh finished with 20 points and 19 rebounds, while Norris Cole added a huge 18 points on 6-of-7 shooting off the bench. Game Four of the best-of-seven series is on Monday, also at the United Center. All five Bulls starters were in double figures led by Carlos Boozer with 21. Chicago only got eight points from its bench, which was shortened even more when Nazr Mohammed was ejected in the second quarter for shoving LeBron. Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose all sat out again. Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson each chipped in 17 points in the loss.
