After losing Game 1 in disappointing fashion, the Miami Heat made sure they would not drop Game 2. Ray Allen scored 21 points, LeBron James added 19 and the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 115-78 Wednesday in an emotional Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The series is tied at a game apiece. Game 3 is Friday in Chicago.

“We came out with intensity, they did as well, and we just tried to keep our composure throughout everything that was going on that had nothing to do with basketball,” James said.

“We played our game tonight. We attacked both offensively and defensively and (were) able to win a must-needed win, obviously.”

It was the largest margin of victory for the Heat in a playoff game and the largest defeat for Chicago. Norris Cole scored 18 points and Dwyane Wade added 15 for Miami, which had six players score in double figures.

“Losing Game 1 at home was tough, and we had to go back and look at ourselves in the mirror and look at each other in the eye and say what is the reason we are here for,” Wade said.

“We had to come out and play with better effort.”

Miami outscored Chicago 56-18 in the paint and 20-2 on fast-break points while shooting 60 percent (42 of 70) while holding the Bulls to 35.5 percent shooting (27 of 76).

“We were able to save this one, but we are still in the hole,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

“They got what they needed. They got one (win on the road). It doesn’t matter about the score tonight. We need to move on now and get ready to go into the lion’s den on Friday.”

Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson each were ejected in the fourth quarter after picking up their second technical fouls for Chicago, which had six of the game’s nine technical fouls.
