Game 2 by the numbers

-The Heat led by four points with 3:30 left in the second quarter. From there, Miami outscored Chicago 73-40.

-Dwyane Wade hit his last six shots of the game.

-Cole finished the game 6 of 7 from the field.

-From late in the second quarter on, Wade and Cole were 12 of 14 from the field.

-Ray Allen led the Heat with 21 points, scoring 15 points in the fourth quarter.

-From the beginning of the second quarter to the end of the game, Shane Battier had a plus/minus of plus-36. Seeing how he played less than 18 minutes during this time, I don't really see how that's possible, but the numbers don't lie, I guess.

-Norris Cole's shot chart:

Said Norris Cole: "LeBron and Wade attacked the paint. We were open."

-The Heat outscored Chicago 60-37 in the second half. Here's what shooting over 62 percent from the field in a half looks like:

Said Ray Allen, who owned the second half: "We found the open guy. You see small things on film where guys are open when they load up on LeBron and Wade. To our credit, we found the open man Monday. We just didn't hit the shots."

-The Heat outscored the Bulls 30-15 in the third quarter. Chicago shot less than 24 percent from the field in that period. On paper, that's a lot of red. Take note: No points in the paint...

Very nice Joe. Really like the charts and the game stats!

Well, as we get ready for game 3, expect a more physical game... We must stay aggressive... 48 minutes... This is the blueprint...

They will have their arena rocking...

Set the tone from the tip.... Game three...

Turn it up.... From tip to buzzer, stay aggressive.... Turn it up......

Everyone... FOCUS.....
