VIDEO: LeBron James Takes Over Game 2 Vs. Chicago Bulls Late

The Miami Heat needed some scoring late in Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls. LeBron James stepped up and produced exactly that.

James came through in the clutch for the Heat, who had just two points through the first 7:25 of the fourth quarter and had let a 71-65 lead turn into a 73-73 tie. James hit a three with 4:26 remaining to give the Heat a lead they would not relinquish, and then scored nine of the Heat's last 12 points — Dwyane Wade got the other three on free throws; only Udonis Haslem and James made field goals for Miami in the fourth quarter — to seal the Heat's 85-75 win and tie their series with the Bulls at one game apiece.

James wasn't only productive as a scorer, though: he snagged three rebounds in the final 4:26 of Tuesday night's game, and had one sequence that included a steal, an offensive rebound, and a putback that stretched the Heat's lead to more than one possession for good.
