Now the Bulls must do what no other Bulls team has done before in the NBA playoffs: Come from behind and shock the world. The MJ-led Bulls rarely found themselves in a series where they were one game away from elimination, with three more left to play. So the new Bulls will have to make history.
Whichever way you slice it, this Heat/Bulls series is tops. It's so super-charged, not only with great basketball but with stupid side drama that only teams like these could deliver. Get a Bogans/Wade or, even better, Deng/LeBron fight going? Boozer/Bosh? Derrick Rose against the world?
The Chicago Bulls went to Miami in the hopes of regaining the upper-hand in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat, but it was not to be on Sunday. Turnovers, poor shooting, and a dominating performance by Chris Bosh propelled the Heat to a 96-85 victory over the Bulls in Game
I called it. Oprah ruined our mojo. The Chicago Bulls came out flat with little of their patented energy and were defeated by the Heat in a Game Two defensive slugfest. As a fan, it's hard to get too down about this loss because our confidence is high that they will win one (or two) in Miami.
