NBA PLAYOFFS: Heat hand Bulls historic loss
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. The Bulls 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.
WARRIORS 100, SPURS 91: 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.
Thompson, who scored 29 points in the first half.

The Warriors play host to Game 3 on Friday night.
