Game 5: Bulls-Heat Preview

In pretty much a must-win game, Chicago put in its worst performance of the year, as well as one of the worst postseason games in the franchise’s history. Now they find themselves in a true must-win situation, facing elimination as they hit the road. You can’t blame the Bulls too much, I guess, considering the […]

Quick Reaction: Heat 104, Bulls 94

MVP (Most Valuable Player): In a game where LeBron James (6-17 field goals) didn’t shoot great and Dwyane Wade (ten points) disappeared for stretches, Chris Bosh picked up the slack.

Game 3 Preview: Heat-Bulls

Hold on one second, I’m still adding up all the fouls from last game. 51 personal fouls, nine technicals, two ejections and one flagrant. According to my math that adds up to…one lopsided victory.

A tempest in a teapot

There were so many compelling story lines in Chicago’s victory over the Heat the other night. There was Miami’s 27-game winning  streak. Thrilling dunks on both sides. Amazing steals. Ferocious rebounds. Spectacular plays. It was gripping basketball. About as gripping as it gets in the regular season. But oddly enough, the lingering discussion regarding this […]
