LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh Lead Charge as Miami Heat Eliminate Chicago Bulls

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh joined to win a championship.

James scored 28 points, Wade added 21, and they led a furious rally in the final minutes as the Miami Heat eliminated Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls 83-80 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday.

Now, Miami Heat are headed back to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2006, and in a fitting twist, they'll be facing the Dallas Mavericks. Back then, with Wade leading the way, Miami Heat beat Dallas Mavericks to capture the championship. This time, it'll be LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki going for their first rings.

For Miami Heat's Big Three, this was the plan right from the start. The Miami Heat had their difficulties along the way, but look at them now - they just knocked off the team that won more games than any other, that boasted the league's MVP in Derrick Rose and sent expectations soaring around Chicago Bulls in a way not seen since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were racking up championships.

Derrick Rose led Chicago Bulls with 25 points but hit just 9 of 29 shots. He fouled Dwyane Wade on a key four-point play and missed a tying free throw with 26.7 seconds left.
