MIAMI BEAT CHICAGO BULLS AND TIES THE SERIES
Fri, 10 May 2013 08:21 PM EDT

After losing Game 1 in disappointing fashion, the Miami Heat made sure they would not drop Game 2.

Ray Allen scored 21 points; LeBron James added 19 and the Miami Heat beat the Bulls115-78 in an emotional Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The series is tied at a game apiece.

“We came out with intensity, they did as well, and we just tried to keep our composure throughout everything that was going on that had nothing to do with basketball,” James expounded. “We played our game tonight. We attacked both offensively and defensively and (were) ready to win a must-needed win, obviously.”

It was the largest margin of victory for the Miami Heat in a playoff game and the biggest defeat for Chicago Bulls.

Norris Cole scored 18 points and Dwyane Wade added 15 for Miami, which had 6 players score in double figures.

“Losing Game 1 at home was difficult, and we had to go back and take a look at ourselves in the mirror and have a look at each other in the eye and say what the reason we are here for,” Wade announced. “We had to come out and play with better effort.”

Miami outscored Chicago 56-18 in the paint and 20-2 on fast-break points while shooting 60 percent (42 of 70) while holding the Chicago Bulls to 35.5 percent shooting (27 of 76).

Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson each were ejected in fourth quarter after picking up their 2nd technical fouls for Chicago Bulls, which had 6 of the game’s 9 technical fouls.

“This hardly happens to me,” Gibson recounted. “It’s a sign of frustration. We just got blown out. You do not want to get blown out. It’s playoff basketball, it’s frustrating.”

Bulls point guard Nate Robinson was held to 11 points after scoring 27 in Game 1. Marco Belinelli led Chicago with 13 points.

“I guess they’re the world champs for a reason, and they played like it tonight,” Robinson said, “and we just flat out sucked, so we must go back home and be ready to play.”

Allen said, “We’ve played them 6 times this year, and each game has been more physical than the next. Game 1, we just didn’t match their intensity. I thought tonight it had been a very physical game.” Basketball betting lines

After the Chicago Bulls cut the deficiency to 42-38 in the 2nd quarter, Miami heat took control of the game.

The Heat outscored the Chicago Bulls 33-9 over the following 12 minutes to extend their lead directly to 75-47 in the pivotal 3rd quarter.

Following a foul by Marquis Teague on Allen with 10:13 left in the game, Noah walked onto the court to debate the call, resulting to his 2nd technical foul. With Allen at the free-throw line, Gibson continued to protest, earning 2 technicals.

“I just wanted to let the referee know how I felt about the game,” Noah recounted, “but I guess I deserved to get kicked out. We did not play well, but it’s not the end of world. 1-1. It’s going to be a big Game 3 in Chicago.”
