Bulls Ruin Unrealistic Dream Of Sweeping The Heat Spawned By Game 1 Rout; Lose Home-Court Advantage Though They Play Just As Well If Not Better On The Road In The Playoffs
Well that sucked.
"By late Wednesday evening, the Heat had reclaimed its identity and claimed a huge victory, rolling over the Chicago Bulls, 85-75, at the United Center to steal home-court advantage," Howard Beck writes for the New York Times.
"The night was defined by defense, mostly Miami's, which throttled Derrick Rose, flustered Luol Deng and turned Carlos Boozer into a footnote. The Heat held the Bulls to 34 percent shooting and secured the win in a plodding, grinding, grisly fourth quarter, which Miami won, 14-10."
"Bulls Collapse Late," says USA Today.
"Heat Beat Bulls At Own Game," writes Michael Wilbon for ESPN.
