Heat Burn The Bulls, Even Series
The Miami Heat took game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on the road Wednesday night with their 85-75 win over the Chicago Bulls. LeBron James made big plays down the strech, finishing with 29 points to lead all scorers. Dwyane Wade chipped in with 24 points of his own. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.
Udonis Haslem, whom Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called “an absolute championship warrior,” provided a spark off the bench with 13 points, and the Heat beat the Bulls for the first time this season even though Chris Bosh scored just 10 after pouring in 30 in the opener.
Other than Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem is the only remaining Heat player to have played on the 05′ championship team. He always seems to play clutch basketball when the lights are the brightest. Miami needed a spark when Chicago made a late run to tie the game in the 4th quarter. Haslem was that spark. Coach Erik Spoelstra is right when he calls him an “absolute championship warrior.”
