Miami Heat 101, Chicago Bulls 93 OT
If you were looking to have every one of the Bulls’ criticisms confirmed, this was the game to watch. They struggled to get easy shots, the lack of a second ball-handler left Derrick Rose exhausted down the stretch, and the team’s lack of outside shooting made it possible for the Heat to pack the lane and deter the Bulls’ attempts at the rim. Also, I think Mario Chalmers has somehow put a curse on Derrick Rose that prevents him from making free throws when they are in the same arena. That’s the real reason why the Heat exercised his option last summer.
