Bulls go cold against Heat

Missed shots and wasted opportunities. The Chicago Bulls couldn't connect in the fourth quarter and they couldn't stop a late surge by LeBron James, either.

That's why the Eastern Conference finals are now tied at 1-1 headed back to Miami with the Heat now in control of homecourt advantage.

The Bulls, down by 11 in the third quarter, tied the game on a basket by Taj Gibson with a little more than seven minutes to go and then squandered several chances to take the lead against the determined Heat. Chicago managed just one basket the rest of the way, scoring only 10 in the fourth quarter of an 85-75 loss.

The Bulls shot only 34 percent and were 4 for 16 in the last period. MVP Derrick Rose was just 7-for-23 shooting, missing all four of his attempts in the fourth, and finishing with 19 points.
