Heat Vs. Bulls Final Score: LeBron James Leads Miami To 85-75 Win

In a low-scoring final quarter, the Miami Heat came away with an 85-75 victory over the Chicago Bulls to tie the series at one game apiece. The Heat used a 12-2 run to finish the game after the Bulls had been able to maintain a tie game at 73 with less than five minutes remaining.

The Heat entered the fourth quarter with a six-point lead, but Taj Gibson and Derrick Rose were able to take advantage of the Heat's inability to score. But it all shifted in favor of the Heat with less than five minutes to go. LeBron James scored nine of the Heat's 12 points. James finished with 29 points and 10 rebounds. Dwyane Wade scored the remaining three points of that 12-2 run and totaled 24 points and nine boards. Udonis Haslem provided a spark off the bench with 13 points and five rebounds.

Though the Bulls were able to stay late into this game, they were hampered by poor shooting tonight. They shot 34.1 percent for the field (47.1 for Miami) and made just 3-of-20 from beyond the arc. Derrick Rose made just 7-of-23 shots for a team-high 21 points.

This series shifts to Miami on Sunday, May 22.
