Th Miami Heat maintained their lead over the Chicago Bulls after three quarters of play at American Airlines Arena, holding a 76-71 advantage. The Bulls and Tom Thibodeau made some adjustments on the offensive end and Derrick Rose took it right at the Heat's defense. Rose scored 12 of his 25 points in the third quarter to keep Chicago right there in it.

LeBron is keeping pace with Rose, however, and has 24 points and seven rebounds over the first 36 minutes. Chris Bosh has added 20 points in support of James, who continues to add to the highlight reel with Dwyane Wade. In the third, he chased down an errant pass, saving it along the sideline and hitting Wade for a breakaway dunk Video of the save below:
