Chicago – Miami, Game 4, Part II

The Heat have the Bulls in a headlock, despite a fine effort from the Bulls. The series is going back to Chicago with the Heat leading 3 games to 1 after a 101-93 win. Give credit where credit is due. Dwayne Wade for Executive of the Year.

The Heat simply wore down the Bulls. Derrick Rose ends up playing the entire second half and overtime, while the Heat were able to rest Wade for almost half of the 4th quarter. Boozer played close to the entire game, although he was invisible for most of it.

And the sequence in overtime where LB James and Wade scrapped on the floor for the ball, that was pretty nice to see.

One thing we almost saw: Joey Crawford swallowing his whistle, even on obvious fouls. I don’t know what he was drinking when Kyle Korver committed a foul on an over and back situation, but it looked horrible when the other ref 50 feet away had to make that call. I get it…let them play…but sometimes, your purpose as an official is to make calls when they happen.

Looks like we’ll be seeing the Heat and Mavericks in the Finals, an almost welcome break from The Lakers, Celtics and Spurs…except for the presence of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

It was kind of funny, watching the shots where TNT panned the Miami crowd. I wonder how many plastic surgeries and fake tans were in that arena tonight. Celebrity wannabe was out in full force. I don’t know what it is, but NBA attracts the biggest fakes, phoniest fans in all of sports.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
