Surprised we didn't see more DJ and Hinrich together in this game. Bulls needed to get Dunleavy off Wade. It's working now.
Jimmy Butler's confidence is growing by the second in this game. He wouldn't have taken that shot a couple years ago.
Huge offensive board by Taj...extra possession leads to DJ trey
Jimmy Butler strips LeBron on final drive to set up overtime, moving Butler to Defensive Player lead. Durant says he'd never stop me
Bulls 2-2 OT Bulls bringing the passion...as always
James 0 FTAs in regulation and that's with Butler stripping him twice in final minutes.
Good defensive play by Butler, but also an example of the respect he gets from refs these days.
Butler stripped the ball from LeBron on his way to the rim. Great play. We are headed to overtime.
Butler strips LeBron again, headed to OT.
Hinrich had kept that lefty driving layup to tie game at 86 with 20.1 seconds left hidden for four years for this moment
Hinrich ties it at 86 with 20.1 left. Who gets the ball here if you're Miami -- LeBron, Wade ... or Allen?
Hinrich turns baseline left tied at 86 20sec left Miami ball
Hinrich nice scoop ties it up 86-86, Miami ball with 20.1 secs left.
Noah with his 3rd foul...Wade 's two fts Miami 86-84 29sec left Bulls ball
Didn't see a foul there, but Wade's FTs put Miami up 86-84 with 29.2 left.
That Thibodeau media lecture/reminder that this is just like a game against, say, Sacramento isn't holding right now.
Heat tie game at 84 with 1:10 left. In battle for league MVP, LeBron 13, 9 and 8. Noah 18, 8 and 5 and many more exhortations to crowd
Tied at 84--1:10 left wow what a ballgame..stay with us
That sequence could sum up Bulls' regular season.
Gibson with a slam and a foul
Taj with something vicious on Mario and words for him after the foul.
Count the hoop....tied at 82....
Big review call, that shot tied game at 82-82, now 2:21 left.
Noah's inbound bucket should count
That Noah bucket could go either way.

Just your typical Heat-Bulls regular-season game. Waiting for D.J. to clear out and score over LeBron.

Holy cow, was that a right-handed driving bank by Noah?
JImmy Butler doing some of the heaviest lifting in NBA this season. Guards LeBron, switches to Wade, back to LeBron.

Bulls bringing the D wow--Butler at line Bulls 75-74 11-0 run
Jimmy Butler went up to stuff it on Wade and got fouled. The United Center is rocking. Bulls have come back from 12 point deficit, lead by 1
Noah pulled back at last minute when he and Butler went to aggressively slap hands there. He does have a sprained thumb after all.
Taj getting in the mix. Big board there.
DJ trey cuts it to 1.
Great hustle by Kirk after Jimmy gambled
DJ has made 25 str FTS 63 of 64
Here come the Bulls as DJ crashes to the floor...Heat 74-70
Bulls still in this ballgame...down 74-68 853 left 4th
Bulls within 6 now.
That's Taj's first hoop. Might be least impact he's had on game this season. He's under the weather.
Taj on the board.
Taj had 14 straight double-figure games coming into today...scoreless right now
After 3---Heat 67-59 FTS story Heat 17-18 Bulls 5 of 8
That's 9 for LeBron now...no FT attempts
Jimmy finished that on the other side of the rim like he thought a chase-down block was coming.
Carlos with the nice dime to Dunleavy for the layup.
Heat 58-50 256 left 3rd
Over turned..Hinrich-commen foul...
Flagrant called on Hinrich as Wade gets clipped on shoulder and goes down hard not realizing Academy Awards were presented last week.
They got it right, common foul.
Refs downgrade it.
Officials overturn flagrant on Hinrich after video review. Right call. He got ball first.
Flagrant on Kirk ..Wade down-pops up-...hmmmmm really?
Can't believe this foul on Hinrich will remain a flagrant, but you never know. Wade really sold it.
Kirk hit with a flagrant, refs reviewing...game getting chippier
4 on Battier, Heat go big with Birdman.
Tech 1-5- 1-thousand 6-10- 1500 dollars 11-16- 2thousand dollars
Noah was telling another referee earlier in game to watch out for Rio (Chalmers) and looked like Noah got T for barking at Chalmers.
James with 4pts he's scored in dfig in 552 straight games
Looked like Noah just picked up another T. Bulls bench couldn't believe it as they headed into the time out.
Bulls down 52-48 555 left 3rd Noah-10th tech
Jo hit with a T as the Bulls went to the sidelines.
Noah T'd up during timeout.
Noah got Td up by Tony Brothers
Shane still gets up a little bit, I see.
Kirk has been aggressive today.
Jimmy with 5 in the 3rd after 0-6, scoreless 1st 1/2
Two trips down the floor and now Butler is outscoring LeBron 5-4.
Thoughts with Orr's Tyquone Greer, 1 of the better HS players in the city.
A special tweet to our affiliate stations on the Bulls radio network..thank you to all your hard work..you are appreciated. 22, 014 at UC
Wade's conditioning is noticeable ...avg over 30min 11 of last 12 games...17 in 1st half. Bulls only down 6---can win this game...
Bulls fans thoughts on 2nd half.....
Guarding LeBron has seemed to sap all of Butler's energy. He's 0 for 6 from field with a couple point-blank putback misses.
Heat 10-for-16 in second quarter.
Bulls give up a 15-0 run late in 2ndQ, but trail by just 6 at halftime. Wade has 17, LeBron 4. Augustin leads Bulls with 9, Noah has 8.
Heat end 2nd Q on a 15-2 run Heat43-37 at half Wade-17 Noah 8-5reb Boozer-Hinrich each with 7 DJ-9pts Bulls39%
Bulls have to do a better job on Wade in the second half. He's got 17 points and has carried Miami offensively.
Jimmy Butler is playing with plenty of energy he's just not knocking down shots. He's 0-for-6 from the field but has done solid job on LBJ.
Appears Heat has put in Mariano Rivera as Bulls have not scored last six minutes of quarter in 15-0 Heat run
Jo unhappy with that call, walks behind the basket...Miami media finds it amusing
That was bad call on Noah. Just two guys going for the ball.
Poor communication on that between Wade and James, but could have/should have been ugly.
11-1 Heat run.
Miami 11-0 run
These two teams don't like each other. It's fun to watch. Fees like the rivalries from days gone by. Every possession is a battle.
