Yesterday’s blowout playoff game between the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls had to of been the most physical games in history. There is definitely a rivalry and history between these teams. The Bulls are typically a very tough, physical team based around defense. The Heat on the other hand are based on offense and not as physical as the Bulls. The better team here is obviously Miami, but the Bulls keep getting under their skin and Miami is losing their minds. The referees last night had to break up a fight what seemed like every time down the court. These NBA players are supposed to be role models and when kids see them fighting and swearing they are just going to repeat what their role models do.
There was a total of 51 personal fouls in the game. There was a total of 9 technical fouls in the game and one flagrant foul. Two people on the Bulls got ejected too, Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson. As you can see this was a very physical game. Both the Bulls and the Heat need to stop fighting and just play the game. Especially the Bulls, they get under the Heats skin and then they are the ones who have people get ejected. In the first half it was a close game because the Heat were not focused they were too busy fighting.
Once the second half started it looked like the Bulls did not know what hit them. LeBron James scored 19 points in the first half and 0 in the second half because he was making everyone else on his team look good. Ray Allen and Norris Cole took over the game during the second half. Ray had a couple 3-pointers and (and 1’s). Norris had a couple big 3-pointers also. The Heat ended up beating the Bulls 115-78, the worst loss by the Bulls in playoff history. The Heat out rebounded the Bulls 41 to 28 and the Heat had 20 fast break points while the Bulls had 2. Miami scored 56 points in the paint and the Bulls scored 18. Miami’s biggest lead in the game was 46 points. That is what I call a blowout.
