Game 3 saw the physicality turned up as both teams turned up the intensity. The Heat won the battle with a 104-94 over the Bulls in a game that saw reserve center Nazr Mohammed ejected for shoving LeBron James to the ground. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau accused James of flopping and subsequently getting Mohammed ejected.

"From my angle, I just saw a guy basically flop," Thibodeau said after Game 3. "And I'm going to leave it at that."

James scored 25 points and Chris Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds in the win that gave the Heat a 2-1 series lead. Reserve guard Norris Cole scored 18 points off the bench.

"You can't win a championship being pretty and shiny," Bosh said. "You're going to have to get dirty. You're going to have to play physical. You're going to have to dive on the floor. You're going to have to do things that are extremely tough."

Game 4 comes on the heels of Thibodeau being fined $35,000 by the NBA for criticizing officials. On top of the lightening of his wallet, the Bulls coach is still suffering from injuries and a short bench. Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich are considered long shots to play in Game 4 after being deemed day-to-day. Deng wants to play and is willing to do what is asked and what his body can handle.

"I spoke to coach a little but, if I could give 5 or 10 minutes, give these guys a little bit of a break but I can't even get through a regular warm-up," Deng said.

For the Heat, they started to get more physical but the problem is that they cannot get more physical with the Bulls. In a rough and tough game, the Bulls will have an advantage and the Heat will not match up with that. The Heat has to play finesse and skill and try to avoid physical play at all costs.

For the Bulls, they have to attempt to get the Heat into a battle. The only way the Bulls can stay competitive in this series is to play tougher and harder than the Heat.  

The Bulls have a tough uphill battle in order to stay in this series. In my opinion, Chicago will overcome the odds and tie the series at two games apiece on Monday.
