That 1st Half was disgusting. It should have been an even game but the refs walked Miami up and down the free throw line. I've watched NBA for 20 years. Typical finesse team gets handed Game 2 at home after a lose.
I just saw the difference in pts scored in the paint. Miami outscored Chicago by 38pts in paint and got 8 more FTs to show for it.
The idea that the refs "handed" Miami that game in the first half is a f**kin' joke. The vast majority of what the Bulls were shooting were contested jumpers, because no one could get to the basket. OTOH, Miami was getting to the hoop with regularity. God, I hate these silly complaints that show absolutely no understanding of the game. Basketball isn't supposed to be some equitable sport where both teams get exactly the same amount of calls regardless of the action on the court and everyone holds hands and sings Kumbaya.
I'm not even rooting for Miami. In fact, the idea of them losing to a woefully undermanned Bulls team makes me happy in my pants. But Jesus.
BTW, 4ML...Laker fans have had to deal with stupidity like this for most of their entire lives. Comes with being the best. Have fun!
