Soothing: Marquis Teague feeds Noah in the lane for an easy layup, and it's tied at 37 at halftime. So really, the Bulls just have to win one half.

Score: Bulls 37, Heat 37


THIRD QUARTER

Soothing: Nate Robinson is back on the floor to start the second half … and nails a 3 on the Bulls' first possession.

Painful: James answers with a 3 of his own. Don't get him started.

Soothing: Noah takes it coast to coast for a layup, putting the Bulls up 47-46. Fear the foot!

Painful: Bosh swats away a Robinson layup attempt on one end, and Wade scores on the other end to put the Heat up 50-49. Danger zone, Bulls …

Soothing: Robinson, who had 13 points in the quarter drains a 3-pointer from WAY downtown to pull the Bulls within 59-58 …

Painful: … But then Shane Battier answers with a 3 of his own, and the Heat lead by four again.

Score: Heat 62, Bulls 58

 

FOURTH QUARTER

Sickening: Marco Belinelli bats away a Heat pass. That's good. It goes right to James who dunks it and is fouled. That's not good. And extremely unlucky. 68-64 Heat.

Soothing: Butler gets a reverse layup to drop, and he's hacked in the process. Bulls down just 70-69.

Painful: Butler practically tackles James on a fast break, but the Heat superstar converts a three-point play anyway. THEN he does the same thing on the next possession. Ouch. Heat up 76-69.

Soothing: Belinelli nails a 3, knotting it at 76 with less than five minutes left.

Painful: Derrick Rose is up off the bench, trying to will his team to victory after Butler's 3 puts the Bulls up 81-80. Sure you don't wanna play, Derrick?

Soothing: Noah gets an offensive rebound, and Belinelli ties it at 86 with a 3-pointer.

Soothing: Robinson. Jumper. Bulls up two. Is this really happening?!

Soothing: Robinson. Drive. Layup. Bulls up four. Less than a minute to play. We repeat: Is this really happening?!?!

Soothing: Aaaaaand the Heat throw in the towel after James misses a long 3-pointer. Bulls lead the series, 1-0. Wow. We repeat: Wow.

Final score: Bulls 93, Heat 86
