    ong> - LeBron James scored 27 points and the Miami Heat nearly matched a franchise record for points allowed in a playoff game, pounding the listless and short-handed Chicago Bulls 88-65 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
     
       The 65 points allowed were just two more than the all-time postseason low for a Miami opponent, and it was easily the worst offensive performance by a Chicago team.
     
       Never before had the Bulls scored fewer than 69 in a playoff game or 10 in a quarter during the postseason, but both those marks fell on a night when they were dominated on both ends of the floor.
     
       Miami led by 11 at the half and put this one away in the third quarter, outscoring Chicago 17-9 in the period.
     
       The defending champion Heat will try to wrap up the series at home Wednesday.
