Heat Gets Cranked Up in Eastern Conference Finals

Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night as they win 101-93 in overtime. The Heat are just one win away from the NBA Finals.

What was the main key for the heat? What do the Bulls need to do differently?

The Heat got great play, per usual, from their three stars. LeBron James led the way with 35 points. Bosh had 22 important points, and Wade had a bit of an off-night with 14 points. The big time contributor, especially in the fourth quarter was Mike Miller. It seemed like everything he put up for a shot went right through the bucket. He was 5-8 from the field and 2-5 from behind the arc. Miller was CRUCIAL for this Heat victory since they need strong bench contributors, especially down the stretch of these games! That was the reason why they lost game 1 in Chicago since they got practically nothing from their bench.

For the Bulls their bench was their issue tonight. Very little contributions were made. Derek Rose again provided their offense with 23 points. Boozer and Deng each contributed 20 of their own.

For the Heat to win this series, they need to keep on getting contributions from their bench players. NEITHER one of these two teams can win a game by just depending on their three stars! Even though the three for Miami are statistically better!

The series shifts to the windy city Thursday as the Heat look to close things out and move on to the NBA Finals.
