That was a rough Thursday night for us Heat fans. The Bulls blew out the Heat 107 to 87 even without Derrick Rose. Yes the Heat didn’t have Wade either but a beating like this by our sworn rivals isn’t warranted. Simply put the Heat were out rebounded, outscored and out hustled in general.
With Derrick Rose now out for the entirety of the regular season the Bulls called on Noah to give them the spark needed to put them over the top. And he did. Noah totaled 17 points and 15 rebounds and helped his team dominated the Heat on the inside. Carlos Boozer added 27 points and 9 rebounds and made sure the lead was never at risk.
LeBron finished with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals and was the only highlight of the night.
The Heat have now a total of 5 losses this season.
