The Heat played great defense

The Heat played great defense in the fourth and LeBron did his thing down the stretch, but I'll tell you what I seen tonight...

I saw a Heat team get shut down in the first half and get bailed out by free-throws in the second quarter. They should've been down double figure points and that was with the Bulls struggling offensively.

I saw a Bulls team struggle to make shots... Shots they normally make. Saw Rose struggle to make shots he could make in his sleep... Yet they still had a chance to win this game.

Can the Heat rely on Haslem, the player of the game, to give them what he gave them tonight next game? Because they surely need him.

This is going to be a long series. The Bulls are clearly capable of winning in Miami. And Derrick Rose has been known to have great bounce back games as well.

The Bulls bench played

The Bulls bench played good...it was the starters who stunk it up.

The Heat out rebounded them

The Heat out rebounded them too. Alot of things will sway in this series. I'll tell you this, Chicago HAS to take Game 3. Not game 4, because I don't think a young team like that can do that with all that pressure. Take HCA back in game 3.

Tounge out, it's all good though. When the playoffs promo started, I didn't see Scola, or Martin. I did see Melo and Stoudemire. Ya'll need to worry about Yao Ming before you guys can talk playoffs man. Little by little man. Little by little.

Was I really, or did I just say where's the man who was talking about the Bulls in Heat? Come on son, I understand this is your thing, calling people out for no real reason, but I'm not that dude man. I'm not gonna call you names, I'm not gonna go E-Thug on you, I'm just gonna tell you nicely to hop off.

The worst part? Wasn't even talking to you. DanEboy commented in protection of his team, you commented because you could resist riding me. I respect that. In fact, I'm gonna give you some positives....good job.

Hmmm... Game 1, LeBron and

Hmmm... Game 1, LeBron and Wade struggled and the Heat looked overmatched, the Bulls had great depth, and the mercenaries who signed with Chicago were better because their one-year together was more meaningful than that of Miami. In Game 2, Derrick Rose struggled and the Bulls offense was deplorable. This must come as a shocker to some seeing as how the chemistry was so good and the bench so deep, but it shouldn't be. The Bulls need Rose to be the best player on the floor. They are dependent on their star being able to carry the load just like Miami is dependent on LeBron and Wade.

Rose had an abysmal game

Rose had an abysmal game going 7-23 FG 0-3 3's 7-10 FT. And yet the game was still tied with about 2 minutes to go. They didn't need Rose to be the best player on the court tonight, they just needed to hit their damn free throws. 16-26 won't cut it. They lost as a 'team' tonight, not just because of Rose.

Very nice to see Lebron

Very nice to see Lebron perform in the clutch. When he performs like that it leaves no wonder as to who the best player in the league is.Rose's jumper looke flat and his athletisism looked like it wasnt at 100%. He missed runners he usually makes and was not quite an emotional leader for this team. Haslem maybe the final piece to the puzzle for Miami, his lack of size never stopped him from being successful before.

The Bulls scored 2 points in

The Bulls scored 2 points in the final seven minutes of the game, a period in which LeBron and Wade scored the Heat's final 11. They needed Rose to score because they could not go anywhere else. Boozer was not in the game, so the frontcourt was a nonthreat. Deng had a bad game, and even when he is going well he can't create. They tried to get Korver some looks but they didn't fall either. The teams playing this deep can't be like last year's Lakers where they can survive Kobe going 6-24 in Game 7. They can't have Ray Allen go through that drought he had in 2008 and still win. These teams don't have that kind of talent.

I disagree with Thibs keeping

I disagree with Thibs keeping Boozer out to close the game, they were defending pretty well, it was their inability to score which killed them.

Rose definitely looked extremely flat tonight, barely had the legs to get past Bibby, he needs a break after that 6 game Atlanta series when he was chasing around Jeff Teague, keep in mind he's never played this far into the season and how much he had to do, I can see the Bulls stealing one on the road to get back home-court advantage, but Miami's D stifles Chicago's scoring better than Chicago stifles Miami's scoring. Unfortunately, Heat will probably win this series. Let's just hope they meet their match in either Dallas or OKC.

Well

No doubt about Haslem, we all just forgot about him because he was hurt. But Haslem adds to miami's depth. Because lets be real here, with out Haslem Miami has mostly just shooters on the bench that are inconsistent. Haslem changes that up.

Btw, Lebron had a cold last night. js
