Heat Top Bulls 83-72, Tighten East Race
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James had 27 points and 11 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 18 points and the Miami Heat tightened up the Eastern Conference playoff race by beating the Chicago Bulls 83-72 in a scuffle-filled game Thursday night.

Mario Chalmers scored 16 points and Udonis Haslem grabbed 10 rebounds for Miami, which held the Bulls to a season-low point total and moved within 1{ games of Chicago in the East race.

John Lucas scored 16 points for Chicago, which was again without reigning MVP Derrick Rose because of injuries. Joakim Noah scored 15 points, Luol Deng added 11 and Carlos Boozer had 10 for the Bulls, who split four games with Miami this season.

The teams combined for four technicals, two flagrant fouls and Miami reserve James Jones was ejected.
