CHICAGO (CBS) The Chicago Bulls have made it to the Eastern Conference finals, largely, do to their ability to close out games. But in the last two contests against the Miami Heat, the Bulls have faltered down the stretch and lost.

“We felt like we had a chance to win the last two games,” Carlos Boozer said. “We didn’t do as good of a job down the stretch the last two games.”

The Bulls trailed at half by two points in Game 2 and three points in Game 3, but were outscored by eight points in the second half of each game.

“Give them Credit,” Boozer said. “…They did a good job of executing the last, you know, four, five, six minutes of the last two ball games. And that’s something that we have to pick up and do better.”
