The Chicago Bulls are now in a tight spot after dropping another playoff game to Miami Tuesday night.

After several off nights, it looked like Chicago star Derrick Rose could help pull it off for the Bulls. But he ended up shooting only 8 for 27, and committed a handful of turnovers.

A missed shot in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter sent the game into overtime, where Miami won 101 to 93. The Heat now have a commanding lead in the Eastern Conference Finals, three games to one. And the Bulls are now in unfamiliar territory, having dropped three games in a row for the first time all year.

That means Game Five is a must-win for Chicago in this best-of-seven series. The good news: The Bulls will get to play at the United Center Thursday night, the scene of their only victory so far this series.
