The Sixers have made no secret of their focus on hiring a new coach. But what they really need first is a new president (see story).

Also, we continued our look at the Sixers' coaching candidates with Brian Shaw, who has championship experience as a player and an assistant (see story).

Now, here's a recap of Wednesday's NBA playoff action:

Heat crush Bulls to even series
MIAMI -- Ray Allen scored 21 points, LeBron James had 19 and the Miami Heat embarrassed the Chicago Bulls with a 115-78 victory in Game 2 of the teams' Eastern Conference semifinal series on Wednesday night.

The Bulls had six technical fouls, and Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were ejected late as Miami's lead reached as much as 46 points. The Heat knotted the series at 1-1, with Game 3 in Chicago on Friday night.
