Looks like we got us a series here ladies and gentlemen!
Back to his usual havoc-wreaking ways, LeBron James took control when it counted and the Miami Heat sent out a loud message in the process.
They’re ready for a ”street fight,” if that’s the route to the NBA finals.
James came up big down the stretch to finish with 29 points, Dwyane Wade scored 24 and Miami beat the Chicago Bulls 85-75 Wednesday night to tie the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece.
The Heat can breathe a little easier after escaping with a win and stealing home-court advantage. Coming off a lopsided loss in Game 1, they recovered down the stretch after blowing an 11-point lead to pull even in the series, with Game 3 in Miami on Sunday.
”The series has just started,” James said. ”It’s 1-1. We’re excited that we were able to come here and get a win. But it’s just started.”
James shook off a brutal opener and scored nine points over the final 4:27, starting with a 3-pointer that put Miami ahead for good, 76-73. He also had 10 rebounds despite a head cold, and Miami outrebounded the Bulls 45-41 after getting pounded 45-33 on the glass in the opener.
”That fourth quarter is going to epitomize this entire series,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after his team outscored Chicago 14-10 in the period. ”It’s an absolute street fight for both teams.”
For what its worth, shady or not, you didn’t think that The Miami
Lebron’s Heat were just going to lay down to these young boys from Chicago did you??
Do you think Chicago can take their talents to South Beach and come back with a win??
