Once they took their talents to South Beach, they knew they had what it takes to contend for the NBA championship. Game 4 compellingly established why once more. Basketball scores.
The Big Three is one victory away from playing for the NBA’s biggest stage, and all three had a huge contribution in getting the Miami Heat on that entrance way.
Despite LeBron’s 35 points and Bosh’s 22 the Heat are making all the hustle plays that don’t show up on the scoresheet and it’s making a difference… that’s how the Heat thrashed the Bulls 101-93 in a dazzling Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the series. Basketball odds.
Derrick Rose finished the game with 23 points, while Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer registered 20 apiece for the Bulls. Chicago has lost three consecutive games for the first time this season, and subsequently, the league’s reigning MVP pointed the finger of blame at himself.
The Heat’s suffocating defense has been the key as they managed to hold Rose to 8-from-27 from the field and force him to make 7 turnovers. Rose was guarded in the game’s biggest minutes by James, and the MVP past had the upper hand against the MVP present.
“It’s extremely hard,” Rose acknowledged, “when a 6-8 guy can easily defend you.”
LeBron James took it upon himself to defend Derrick Rose in the final stretch of Game 4. In spite of guarding him on just a couple of plays in the first three games of the series, James held Rose scoreless, including denying the potential game-winning shot in regulation. “Defense is the reason that we’re here,” Bosh said.

Miami will go for the clincher Thursday in Chicago, where the Heat can wrap up their first finals trip since 2006.
