Spurned by stars, Bulls sweep Heat

Another final-second opportunity slipped away from the Miami Heat, and the Chicago Bulls — spurned last summer in their bids to land Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh — swept all three regular-season meetings from the team that signed them.

The Big 3? They're No. 3 in the Eastern Conference, after Derrick Rose scored 27 points, Luol Deng capped an 18-point effort with two free throws on a debated play with 15.9 seconds remaining, and the Bulls beat Miami yesterday, 87-86, to hand the host Heat their fourth straight loss.

"The Miami Heat are exactly what everyone wanted, losing games,'' said Wade, who scored 20 points. "The world is better now because the Heat is losing.''

Chicago became the fourth team since Feb. 24 to erase a double-digit deficit against the Heat.
