The streak that some thought may never end, finally did.
The Miami Heat ran out of magic and dropped last night’s game to the Chicago Bulls, 101-97, putting an end to their 27-game win streak.
As they did a number of times over the past two months, the Heat fell behind by double-digits in the first half, only to come roaring back in the second half and take the lead. This time though, the Bulls did not just roll over.
They hit back hard, both figuratively and literally.
The second biggest storyline from the game was LeBron James’ complaints afterwards that the Bulls were fouling him too hard.
“First of all, Kirk Hinrich in the first quarter basically grabbed me with two hands and brought me to the ground,” James said. “The last one, Taj Gibson was able to collar me around my shoulder and bring me to the ground. Those are not defensive ... those are not basketball plays."
Funny enough, the only flagrant foul from last night’s game was called on LeBron.
