Miami, coming off a six-month-low 39.7 percent shooting night, got its three-point stroke cooking, also a byproduct of defense. Cole nailed two in a row during a 13-3 run to close the first half, and both came after Boozer missed jump shots and the Heat hustled back on offense.
After Nate Robinson hit a three-pointer to cut Chicago’s deficit to eight, Norris Cole hit back-to-back threes from the left corner to give Miami the 14-point lead it would take into the locker room.

“The second unit, our job is to close out the quarters,” Cole said. “LeBron attacked the paint and I was open, aggressive and knocked the shots down. It was important to finish the quarters strong.”
Shane Battier and Norris Cole started the fourth quarter with back-to-back three-pointers and the rout was on. The Heat scored the first nine points of the final period to take a 97-56 lead. The run included six points by Ray Allen on a single possession when Noah and Gibson were ejected with 10:13 left in the game.Heat's Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers answer defensive call in Game 2--South Florida Sun Sentinel
“I just wanted to let the referee know how I felt about the game,” said Noah, who had 12 points and six rebounds. “But I definitely deserved to get kicked out. We didn’t play well, but it’s not the end of the world. It’s 1-1. It’s going to be a big Game 3 in Chicago.”
Nate Robinson was the Bulls’ lightning rod in Game 1 but he was held to 11 points on 10 shots in Game 2. For the Heat, Norris Cole had 18 points off the bench and Allen had a team-high 21 points. He scored 15 points in the fourth quarter.

And when energy was required, it was provided off the bench by Ray Allen, who scored 21 points in an effort that included 10-of-10 foul shooting, and Norris Cole, whose two 3-pointers at the end of the second quarter were part of a 13-3 half-ending run the Heat later expanded to 33-9 in the third quarter.
The tone was set early in a wild first half that included five technical fouls, one flagrant foul, one double-foul and those 3-point daggers by Cole. In all, nine technical fouls were called, matching the most in the NBA playoffs over the past 18 years.
