Yes, easily 3-1. These games have been going down to the wire, with Miami pulling through at the end. What, it's been a cakewalk? You trying to say Chicago wasn't a threat to win tonight? A few bounces here and there, who knows?!

I can go along with 2-2 not 3-1

True. I honestly thought Chicago would hit the winning shot in regulation after Lebron was called for that offensive foul with 8 sec left. Also, not having Asik caused Deng and Noah to gas out in the end. A bad break for the Bulls.

Bad shot at the end of regulation, they cold have been more creative than that, that was terrible. Rose could have been a great decoy.

I have nothing to add to that except:

But right now, Rose isn't their best player.

Exactly. "Give it to Rose" was as predictable as a lunar eclipse.

That...was...brutal. I'm trying to remind myself that the future is still bright for this team, but I hate losing to the biggest clown in sports in Lebron.

Think about this stretch for chicago fans: Bears lose to the hated packers in the NFC title game, Hawks lose a brutal game 7, Bulls probably getting eliminated by the most hated team in the league, and both baseball teams under .500. Siiigh

Meh, I don't hate the Heat or Lebron.

All the Heat are doing is collapsing the lane with 4-5 guys and the Bulls aren't kicking it out for a 3 enough....and Korver has fallen apart in the playoffs.

Basically, my one fear for the Bulls....lack of playoff experience (leading to bad decisions, etc) has been a big factor. They managed to overpower earlier teams but here they are.

It's highly unlikely they will win the series now (duh) but to be honest there is no way they beat Dallas so I'm not shedding any tears as frankly they just aren't playing championship calibre ball.

That's not really fair. The Heat have been game planning for D-Rose every night. D-Rose is kinda like Mike Vick in the sense that he's nasty when he's free to do what he wants, but can be effectively contained when he becomes the focus of a defense. If Pat Riley could come up with defensive schemes to make life difficult for Jordan, he can certainly come up with some to make life difficult for a 23-year old who's not nearly as unstoppable as His Airness.

A low percentage shot? It almost went in. What are you talking about? That shot may have been low percentage for Ronnie Brewer, but that was not a low percentage shot for Derrick Rose. True, it's lower percentage than a dunk, but that's obvious. I thought Rose took a good shot at the end; it just didn't go down.

There's nothing the Bulls could have done differently to make their fans happy. Other than hit the game-winning shot, that is.

If Rose had driven to the hoop (with the defense prepared for just that and ready to take a charge):

"Why didn't he take the J? Miami's help D was clearly ready for him to drive."

If Deng took the shot:

"Why in the world do you not give the MVP of the League the ball in the most critical juncture of the most critical game of the season? Terrible coaching call!"
