The 20,288 spectators at the AmericanAirlines Arena set a HEAT postseason single-game home attendance record. Wade, who converted 14 of his 16 free throw attempts, helped Miami rally from a four-point fourth quarter deficit and put the HEAT up for good when he hit a jumper with 7:06 left in the final quarter. He also handed out a game-high 11 assists as the HEAT grabbed a 1-0 lead in the series. Shaquille O'Neal finished with 27 points and a team-high 16 rebounds for Miami while Jason Williams, Antoine Walker and James Posey all playing in their first postseason game as a member of the HEAT each scored in double figures. Williams totaled 17 points and Walker and Posey each added 10. Ben Gordon, who hit a game-high five three-point field goals, led the Bulls with a postseason career-high 35 points. The five treys by Gordon were the most by an individual against the HEAT in the 2006 postseason and one shy of the postseason record by a Miami opponent. As a team, Chicago converted 13 of its 26 three-point field goal attempts and the 13 treys set a franchise record for a HEAT opponent. Kirk Hinrich added 19 points and a team-high eight assists and Andres Nocioni totaled 18 points and a team-high 16 rebounds for the Bulls. The 14 defensive rebounds grabbed by Nocioni established a postseason record for a HEAT opponent. Miami converted 32 of its 39 free throw attempts (82.1 percent) compared to 13-of-17 (76.5 percent) by the Bulls. The HEAT also recorded a 2006 postseason-high 11 steals and added eight blocks. Miami won despite having to overcome the loss of starting power forward Udonis Haslem who was ejected with 4:11 remaining in the second quarter after he threw his mouthpiece to the ground on a non-foul call that subsequently led to a one-game NBA suspension.
