There's still nothing for Bulls fans to be nervous about. After all, the Bulls did beat them all four times during the regular season.

Of course, in soccer, you don't have fans so close to you that you can turn around and smack them in the face.

While they're professionals and all, I agree they shouldn't be required to take unrelenting personal abuse from fans who take full advantage of the knowledge that there's nothing the players can do about it. A few taunts is one thing; that's part of fandom. But f you're going to be such a chickensh*t that you use that protection to be downright abusive, the NBA needs to diffuse the situation by telling abusive fatmouths to S.T.F.U. or risk getting ejected.

I knew Lebron was a great perimeter defender, but just wow! Was stunned on how well he defended Rose. I thought Rose was gonna blow by him on every possession. Like Steve Kerr said, " Lebron was Magic Johnson like in the last game and MJ like in this game".

When you think about it, in games 2 and 4 , Haslem and Miller stepped up. I had a feeling that somebody other than the 3 would have to contribute in order for the Heat to get over that hump. The contribution by Miller really got them going late in the game.

Unfortunately Rose has not been earning his MVP title in this series, which goes back to my first post predicting Heat in 6: When Rose is having a bad game, there's nobody to pick up the slack like the Heat have if Bosh or Wade or James have a bad game. I'm almost surprised they put it in his hands in the final regular-time possession. Put it in Deng's hands or Boozer's hands.

I disagree. You have to put the ball in your best player's hand. I was more surprised at how well Lebron defended him.

That's pretty much it, the challenge is shutting down all 3 guys and in the last 3 games, Lebron went off, then Bosh, then Lebron again. The Heat has also gotten a huge lift from unexpected sources: Haslem in game 2, Miller and Chalmers tonight, Anthony providing tough interior defense and rebounding.

At this point you have to wonder if Chicago is mentally defeated, because in reality, this series could have easily been 3-1 Chicago. The games have gone down to the wire, but the Bulls not having that second dependable crutch-time scorer is hurting them now. Game 6 will be a dogfight, and Miami needs to treat it like game 7 for them. Lose, and all the pressure is on them to close it out at home.
