Heat Vs. Bulls Final Final Score, Game 4: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Lead Miami To Overtime Victory

Despite leading and the end of all of the first three quarters of Game 4, the Chicago Bulls simply didn't have enough to defeat the Miami Heat on Tuesday night. Dwyane Wade, who was an absolute non-factor in the third and fourth quarters, came alive in overtime. He scored six points, but more important and emphatic were his two fantastic blocked shots. Miami's defense and some great scoring from all of the big three were the stories in the overtime period, and as a result, the Heat have a 3-1 series lead after winning Game 4 by afinal score of 101-93.

The unsung hero of the game was Mike Miller, whose play on offense and on the boards was a surprising spark that helped guide Miami to the win. His 12 points and nine rebounds off the bench were a minor shock, especially since nine of those 12 points came in the fourth quarter. Oddly, the end of the fourth quarter and the beginning of overtime was mostly about Miller and Ronnie Brewer, who were fantastic on both ends of the floor at the end of the game.

In the end, the ultimate difference seemed to be fitness and player management. The Bulls went hard all game, but they looked absolutely exhausted when the overtime period rolled around, while the big three appeared to be completely fresh. Because of that difference, the Heat hold a 3-1 series lead and now appear to have one foot in the NBA Finals.
