 MIAMI (AP) - Ray Allen scored 21 points in only 19 minutes, LeBron James finished with 19 points and nine assists, and the Miami Heat led by as many as 46 on the way to a 115-78 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night that tied their Eastern Conference series at a game apiece.
It was the largest margin of victory in the Heat's postseason history, topping a 35-point win over Orlando on April 24, 1997.
Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were ejected in the fourth quarter for Chicago, and the league will almost certainly review some of the things said and done in a game that was close for the first 20 minutes before turning into an embarrassment for the Bulls, who were called for six technicals - the most by any team in a playoff game since Boston had that many against Indiana in 2005.
Game 3 is Friday in Chicago.
Dwyane Wade added 15 points and Chris Bosh had 13 for the Heat, who led 42-38 with 3:42 left in the first half, before going on an absurd 62-20 run. Yes, 62-20.
Marco Belinelli scored 13 points for the Bulls, who were without Luol Deng (illness) and Kirk Hinrich (calf). Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson combined for 19 points on 6-of-19 shooting.
WARRIORS 100, SPURS 91
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Klay Thompson scored 34 points, Stephen Curry added 22 and Golden State withstood another furious rally by San Antonio to even their Western Conference series 1-1.
