|Heat Aiming for 3-1 Lead in East Finals Over Bulls
|MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat know exactly what the Chicago Bulls are thinking, since they had the same thoughts a week ago.
After losing Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals in Chicago, the Heat knew all they had to do to claim home-court advantage was simply win Game 2 _ which they did. Now it's the Bulls' turn to try for a split of the two games in Miami.
The Heat took a 2-1 series lead with a 96-85 win on Sunday, behind 34 points from Chris Bosh.
Game 4 is Tuesday night. Chicago has not dropped three consecutive games at any point this season, and a win on Tuesday would give the Bulls the home-court edge in the best-of-seven series once again.
