Bulls vs. Heat Final Score: Miami Takes Commanding 3-1 Series Lead, Dominates Chicago 88-65


The Heat are one win away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals for the third straight year.

Miami took an early lead in Game Four and never looked back. Chicago could not find any offensive rhythm and set a franchise playoff low with 65 points on 25.7 % shooting.

Yikes…..

LeBron James led all scorers with 27 points and Miami now has the Bulls by the jugular. Nate Robinson reminded everyone just how erratic he can be, finishing with 0 points as he missed all twelve of his shots. Dwyane Wade didn’t look like his normal self yet again, but he wasn’t needed.

Miami’s defense was suffocating all evening and allowed only nine points in the third quarter, which blew open the game. Chicago went 2 for 17 from three-point range and could not buy a basket for long stretches of the game.

As Chicago heads back to Miami for Game Five down 3-1, it looks like their season is coming to an end. The Bulls have exerted a valiant effort but they are well over-matched.

Miami will look to close out the series in Game Five which will air Wednesday May 15th at 7pm ET on TNT.
