The Chicago Bulls are known for their physical brand of basketball, and on Sunday, the Miami Heat were up for the challenge. Luol Deng gets his shot sent packing by Chris “Birdman” Anderson, but the scrappy, Jimmy Butler, secures the rebound and finishes with a tough layup.
Butler’s physical bucket brought the Bulls within 7 points on the road, with a score of 27-20 with about a minute left in the first quarter. Butler finished the game with 13 and 5 rebounds. He was just one of six Bulls in double digit scoring, but it wasn’t enough to down the defending champions, as the Heat notched their 64th win on the season with a 105-93 victory.
LeBron James had 24 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists, while Dwyane Wade kicked in with 22 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. The Heat also ended up with six players in double figures on the night. Miami will meet the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
