There are tons of deserving, more significant games, but you won't see a more thrilling finish. And it capped a game in which the banged-up Bulls (who played only seven players) led by 13 in the first half, the Heat led by 14 in the third quarter and by five with 20 seconds left in the first overtime. With the game tied at 127-127, Miami's Dwyane Wade stripped John Salmons in the lane with about three seconds remaining, dribbled ahead and nailed a running 24-foot three-pointer at the buzzer. Wade, who also sent the game to the first OT with a three, had 48 points and 12 assists. ''This is one of those games for the ages,'' Wade said.
