article imageNBA Scores: Bulls hand Miami third straight loss with OT victory

By Larry Seely     Mar 9, 2014 in Sports
Chicago - The Bulls are playing their best basketball of the season and doing so with terrific team defense and the play of center Joakim Noah. Chicago handed Miami its third straight defeat with a 95-88 OT victory in NBA action on Sunday.
Chicago has now won 11 of their last 14 games and Noah has taken over the leadership role. The All Star finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds, and five blocked shots. Jimmy Butler blocked the last shot in regulation from LeBron James to force the overtime and the Bulls took care of business in the final five minutes, limiting Miami to just one made basket during the extra time.
James played his first game without the mask and was held to 17 points, making just 8 of 23 shots from the floor. Dwayne Wade carried the Heat early and finished with a team high 25 points, but the defense from Chicago was key to victory as they held Miami to just 30 made shots from the floor.
Butler finished the contest with 16 points and eleven rebounds and super sub D.J. Augustin added 22 points as the Bulls improved to 35-28 for the 2013-14 NBA season and 19-11 at the United Center.
