MIAMI — Dwyane Wade decided two overtimes were enough, in emphatic fashion.

Miami's MVP candidate stole the ball from John Salmons with four seconds left, then made a running three-point shot as time expired to lift the Heat to a wild 130-127 double-overtime win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

Wade -- who finished with 48 points and 12 assists in 49 minutes, shooting 15 for 21 from the field -- made a three-pointer at the end of the first half, then again at the end of regulation.

Referees reviewed the final play for more than two minutes, before Mark Wunderlich shot his hands in the air, officially giving Miami the win.

"We played a good game, both teams," Wade said. "Credit the Bulls. This is one of those games for the ages."

Ben Gordon scored a season-high 43 points for the Bulls, including eight three-pointers.
