Heat Vs. Bulls Score: Miami Closing Gap, But Time Running Out

The third quarter for both the Chicago Bulls and the Miami became heated over the final minutes, but the Bulls were able to keep their lead. The Heat, though, cut that lead to five points, 62-57.

Things got testy when LeBron James drove to the hoop, but was met with a Carlos Boozer hand to the face. James, who exaggerated pain on an earlier play, went down and covered his nose. Boozer received a flagrant foul for that. Luol Deng and Taj Gibson would also receive fouls later on, Gibson's a technical.

James and Bosh each have 16 points and eight rebounds, but Dwyane Wade is having a tough go at it. He has 11 points, but he has nine turnovers. For the Bulls, Derrick Rose has 19 points, but after a good start from the field he is just 7-of-20.
