Bulls Edge Heat 95-88 in Overtime
(CHICAGO) -- The Bulls earned themselves another statement victory on Sunday. Joakim Noah had 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 95-88 overtime win over the Miami Heat at the United Center. "I want what they have -- a championship," Noah said. "One day, we're going to have to get through those guys."
D.J. Augustin added 22 points for the Bulls (35-28), who forced overtime after Jimmy Butler blocked a LeBron James layup attempt at the end of regulation.
"I dropped the ball. It's like a double entendre," James said. "I actually dropped the ball, but I dropped the ball on my team. I had it. That's a great play. I give a lot of credit to Jimmy. He got his hand on the ball, but I had the lane. I had the layup."
Dwayne Wade lead the Heat (43-17) with 25 points, but James was held to just 17 points on 8-of-23 shooting. Miami blew a 12-point lead down the stretch and was outscored 9-2 by the Bulls in overtime.
