Don't think anyone has been allowed anything tonight.

I can see where you would mention Bibby and Miler, but anyone who's watched the Heat all year know that Joel Anthony is key for winning games..his numbers aren't big but he changes lots of plays

I wonder why the Heat don't play Chalmers a bit earlier or start even. I am aware that his shooting ability is not quite like Bibbys, but his defense is so much better. If Bibby doesn't hit his shots...it is pretty much a waste to have him out there. Also, what happened to Miller? I thought his fingers have healed up. He was suppose to be their knock down 3pt shooter.

Haslem has always had a pretty consistent 13-14ft jumper, so you're wrong there. Bosh isn't a bad perimeter shooter. If anything, people criticize him for being a jump shooter for the most part.

Your commentary is always entertaining. Joel Anthony and Miller took 2 shots, Chalmers took 3. Bosh took a lot of heavily contested shots with Noah and Gibson in his grill. I don't think Joel Anthony took ONE jumper, open or contested. Bibby had a couple of 3's off of lapses in the Bulls defense, they sure as hell weren't saying 'Here Mike, have an open 3point shot on us, buddy.'

Obviously you were watching a different game from the rest of us.

I think they are using Bibby more because of his offensive threat and we know he hasn't hit a lot of shots, but he's still a threat and I think he's being used more as a decoy and for his passing ability....Chalmers is solid on both ends but not as quick on the offensive end when reading the defense as Bibby is...Miller had like one game all year that i can even remember him going off in...he scored like 30 points or something like that but has been quite all year..he's good right now only for rebounding and driving the ball in the lane which can open up some things but his offense is terrible right now....James Jones is more of our knock down 3pt shooter this year

What I'm saying is the Bulls didn't care wo took shots as long as it wasn't the two guys below

D-Wade

Lebron
