Before the Heat took the United Center floor Friday night, LeBron James huddled his teammates in the hallway and encouraged them to ignore all outside influences. It was a message he needed to apply to himself, considering how Game 3 unfolded. James knew the Bulls would try to throw off his mind with a dose of trash talk and throw off his rhythm with physical play. But not even James could anticipate how barbaric things would become in his team's 104-94 win.
