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.
