Bulls Dominate Heat in Game 1

Monday, May 16, 2011

Whatever strategy the Miami Heat came out with in the second half of game 1 need to be burned, put in a casket and buried. The Chicago Bulls dominated the Heat in the second half. They killed them in every aspect of the game. They out rebounded them on both sides of the floor, they out hustled them on both sides of the floor, and they played smothering defense holding Miami to just 34 points in the second half. Derrick Rose did whatever he wanted to the Heat's defense, and the Bulls big men outplayed Miami's. The only bright spot for Miami was Chris bosh. He put up 30 points and 9 rebs on 12-18 from the field, that's all-star numbers if you ask me. He's got a reputation as being soft and settles too much on the jump shot, but yesterday he played like true all-star, it's just too bad he didn't get to much help.

Now, I don't know if it was just Miami had a bad game, or if the bulls are just too much for them this year. Whatever the case the Miami Heat is going to have to make major adjustments in game 2. I knew coming in that Miami will be undersized in the middle, but I didn't know it would be so exploited. The Chicago Bulls dominated the heat on the offensive boards 19-6, that's 13 more chances to score just of rebounds. Not to mention the 16-9 turnover difference, that's 20 more times to score then the heat. Let's face it, if the big three of the Heat are not playing at a high level at the same time they will not win a game in this series. It is going to take every bit of effort and maybe more then it took in the Boston series for them to beat the Chicago Bulls. I think we will all have to watch game 2 to really see if the Miami Heat can compete with the Chicago Bulls.
