Chicago thought they could come into Miami and steal another game from the Heat.
Miami sent Chicago a strong message and confirmed why they are the defending NBA Champions. The Heat dealt Chicago their worst loss in playoff history.
LeBron James didn’t play a single second in the fourth quarter. That’s how bad it was.
At one point the Heat were absolutely dominating the Bulls and led by as much as 46 points.
No, that was not a typo. It was the ”Chicago Massacre”.
Most expected this game would be a physical one and boy did we get one. There were twenty-eight fouls in the first half and nine technical fouls were called during the game. It seemed like every member of the Heat had words with Bulls’ Center Joakim Noah. Bulls’ forward Taj Gibson was ejected from the game after he had some “kind” things to say to the officials.
Even though the Heat dominated Game Two, Chicago should be happy they stole a game in Miami.
As the series heads to Chicago for the next two games, this will be must-watch television moving forward. As you can tell, these two teams don’t have any affinity for each other.
Game Three will be played in Chicago on Friday May 10th (8:00 ET) on ESPN.
