Chicago Bulls beat Miami Heat on Saturday night, apparently without LeBron James, who has been off for two consecutive games due to sprained ankle.

Miami Heat ended the halftime leading, with a score of 53-48, but the Bulls made the first 15 points of the third quarter to make an almost comfortable lead at 65-53. The Heat made a comeback and tied the game at 67.

With the remaining 25 seconds of the game, Kyle Kover made a successful three-point shot to finish the game with the score of 99-96, with Miami Heat ending the game with only one king inside.

Dwyane Wade made 33 points, where 12 points were made in the fourth quarter of the game, including four three-pointers that help the Heat to the lead, but missed a three point shot in the final seconds of the game.

On the other hand, Chris Bosh who made 17 points, had an ankle injury before the end of the third quarter, played only for awhile in the last quarter, and then joined LeBron James at the bench.

Meanwhile, Derrick Rose became the Chicago Bulls king, who had 34 points and eight assists, and was reported to have 50 game tickets that night for his family and friends.

“Both of us do our best to lead our teams. I try to do the same thing. When my team looks down and out, I try to lead them back.” Dwyane Wade said on the post-game interview.

“In the fourth I got my body going and with the guys out there I just tried to win the game. … We were one rebound away from having an opportunity to steal the game.” He added.

“It’s not that bad.” Chris Bosh said on his injury, whose X-ray result was negative. “I consider myself lucky. The damage is very mild.”

“Effort plays were the difference in the game.” Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “The game was decided when the ball was in the air.”

This recent Chicago Bulls-Miami Heat game was their first in this season.
