The Miami Heat sank the Chicago Bulls and are headed to the Eastern Conference finals.

In true Heat fashion,it was a cast of characters that helped the Big 3 send the Bulls home.

Shane Battier ignited a fourth-quarter comeback Wednesday to seal the 94-91 victory.

The Bulls owned a 10-point lead during the  closing portions of the third period and were in front by eight heading into the final quarter.

Battier then scored eight points during the first 3:30 of the fourth, hitting a pair of 3-pointers and connecting on 2-of-3 free throws.

The understaffed Bulls gave the Heat fits before coming up short.

They missed two chances at overtime when both Nate Robinson and Jimmy Butler failed on 3-point attempts in the closing 15 seconds.

Miami is now waiting for either Indiana or New York in the conference finals.

Indiana owns a 3-1 lead against the Knicks and will try put down New York on Thursday.

James scored 23 points and Dwyane Wade, who roared back from a knee injury, added 18.

There was some question as to whether Dwyane Wade would suit up on Wednesday.

Still, there was no way Wade could miss this one. He may have been hurting. It may be a little...
