Miami’s “revenge”

Only the sports media could possibly have categorized Miami’s win over the Bulls yesterday as a “revenge” game. On the one hand, there was the mighty Heat, a reasonably healthy 60-win team with the league’s MVP and two other top 10 players seemingly cruising toward their second straight NBA title. On the other hand, there […]

An historic win: Bulls 101, Heat 97

Last night’s game had two possible outcomes for the Chicago Bulls: Either make history or become a footnote to it. They made history. Unless you just arrived on earth from another star system, you likely already know the Miami Heat entered this game having won 27 games in a row, which represents the second-longest winning […]
