Heat Win Pivotal Game 3
The Miami Heat handed the Bulls their first two-game losing streak of the postseason Sunday night, defeating Chicago by the score of 96-85. Chris Bosh led the way for the home team, scoring a game-high 34 points. In the last 5 years, the winner of Game 3 in the Eastern Conference Finals eventually won the series. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.
Chris Bosh missed his first three shots, and never worried.He was in rhythm. He was catching the ball where he wanted. And then midway through the first quarter, he finally saw the ball go through the hoop for the first time.
“That was good enough for me,” Bosh said.
Game 3 wasn’t the first time Bosh dominated the Bulls. One week prior in Game 1 of the ECF, Bosh dropped 30 points and pulled down 9 boards. The performance was overlooked because Chicago won the game.
Bosh’s confidence level is as high as its been this postseason. After admitting the magnitude of “the moment” got to him in Game 3 of the quarterfinals against the Celtics, Bosh appears to have embraced the big stage of the Eastern Conference Finals. As a result, his team is up 2 games to 1.
