The NBA’s Miami Heat are now up two games to one in their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Chicago Bulls. The Heat overcame late heroics by Luol Deng to win 96 to 85. The much maligned Chris Bosh lead all scorers with 34 points and added five rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and a block. LeBron and Wade scored 22 and 17 points respectively.
It was a night for sidekicks to shine on both sides. Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 17 rebounds for Chicago with Derrick Rose chipping in 20 on 8 for 19 shooting. After a dismal outing in game one Bosh admitted that he was nervous, having never played in a Conference Finals before but that seemed to be a non-factor tonight.
Game four will be played on Tuesday night in Miami.
