It was Hassan Whiteside late surge in the 4th playing behind the Artist formerly known as S.T.A.T. dba Amare Stoudamire as Hassan dominates his head to head versus Pau Gasol scoring 9 of his 16 off the bench in the 4th. Wade County led with a team-high 21 points as the Bulls didn't get any "Stops" nor did they make any key plays down the stretch.
Bulls All-Star Jimmy Butler scored a game-high 25 points, Pau with 21 points 12 rebounds and D-Rose added 17 but they combined to shoot 14 for 33 from the field and just 1 for 4 from the arc. Surprisingly enough Chicago out shot Miami 28-17 in free throw attempts and was +11. Both teams shit under 30% from deep but it was the Heat making all the plays late in the 4th.
The West Side Story Report falls to 39-40 and is another loss or a Pacers "W" for not making the Playoffs. The Heat moves to 46-32 sitting in the #4 slot in the East. Will the Bulls head to the NBA Draft Lottery and what will they do with the Joakim Noah...questions, questions and more questions?
