Heat Vs. Bulls Final Score: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Lead 4th Quarter Comeback, Eliminate Chicago, 83-80

When the Miami Heat needed them most, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade showed up to deliver the goods. James and Wade scored 22 of the Heat's 26 points in the fourth quarter to defeat the Chicago Bulls, 83-80. The Heat captured the series, 4-1, and will face the Dallas Mavericks in a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals.

The Heat entered the final quarter down by five points, 62-57, but James, Wade and solid defense paved the way to victory. James scored 12 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter. Chris Bosh (20 points, 10 rebounds) started the quarter with the first Heat bucket, but the next 22 points by the Heat came by James and Wade. Bosh, though, closed out the scoring with two free throws.

Derrick Rose attempted one final shot before the buzzer went off, but James was there to block it. Rose put up 25 points on 9-of-28 shooting, while Luol Deng was behind him with 18 points. Ronnie Brewer was the only other Bulls scorer in double-digits with 10.
