As shown at ABS-CBN on Thursday, May 26, the Miami Heat tied the game (79-79) in the remaining 1:01 of the fourth quarter.

LeBron James shot 2 points from an 18-foot jump shot to make the Heat lead by two (81-80), after 2011 MVP Derrick Rose missed his second free-throw shot after being fouled by LeBron James.

On the last part, James, who had a total of 28 points and 11 rebounds in the ball game, blocked Rose for his supposed 3-pointer shot, giving the Heat to play for the NBA Finals since 2006.

Apparently, Chicago Bulls enjoyed a 13-point lead with four minutes to go in the game but lost its momentum, which the Heat rushed a 19-4 run.

For the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh helped LeBron James, who scored 12 of his 28 points in the final quarter.

Incidentally, the Miami Heat won against Dallas Mavericks in the 2006 NBA Finals, with LeBron James still playing for his previous team.

The Heat-Mavericks 2011 NBA Finals Game 1 will be held on Tuesday night in Miami.
