MIAMI (AP) - They were bloodied, bruised and battered. Just about everyone had icepacks strapped to various regions of their bodies, and many all but limped toward the bus out of the arena.

That was the Miami scene after Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Imagine what the losing team must have felt like.

The East finals resume with Game 3 in Miami on Sunday night, when the Heat host the Chicago Bulls with a 2-1 series lead at stake. Nearly 96 hours will have passed without a game by tip-off and both sides likely could use the rest after such a physical Game 2, when Miami knotted the series with an 85-75 win.

Bulls guard and reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose says Sunday is a must-win for Chicago, “no matter what.”
