I'll be there. Ain't no way we gonna lose. I'll even run onto the court and tackle Dwyane Wade, send him injured, to make sure we win. But with Wade we'll still win so I ain't gotta do em like that :cool:

Nationally televised game and, of course, the Bulls choke it away. Brilliant strategy by the coaching staff(and I use that term very lightly). Awful execution by the team. They're making the Heat look like world-beaters, while the Bulls look like masons. :tonbricks:

Final

Bulls 74 Heat 103

I'm disappointed. I really expected more of a game tonight.

Boxscore looks like the Heat wanted the playoffs very far more then the Bulls. I haven't watched the game so is this right? Or why the Bulls have a .200 lower FG%?

This is why the Bulls got their *** whupped. Their starting line up was Rose, Hinrich, Johnson, Gibson, Miller. Only 1 of those players has any business starting in the NBA. When that is your starting line up you ain't winning ****.

This can be only an excuse. They already played far better with this lineup.

Will be really difficult to reach the playoffs.

On a national stage, the Bulls dropped an egg of massive proportions, getting blown out 103-74 by the Heat Thursday night at United Center.

With the loss, the Bulls fell 21/2 games behind Toronto with just 11 games to play in the race for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The Bulls trailed by as many as 39 points and their offensive output marked a season-low.

Jermaine O'Neal led the Heat with 24 points in 24 minutes. Dwyane Wade added 12 points and 10 assists in just 29 minutes.

When did they play better with this line-up? They've sucked ever since Noah went down. And since Deng went down they've sucked worse. It may be an excuse, but it's also a fact that you aren't going to be a playoff team when you have the worst starting line up in the whole nba.
