Rose & CHI take Game 1

Lets just say, it was only game one of the series.

Miami last night came out with a great start in the first quarter last night verse the Chicago Bulls, something they haven't been able to do all season.

Chicago though, answered right back with contributions not only from Derrick Rose and Carlos Boozer but the supporting cast Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Ronnie Brewer and Taj Gibson who was my unsung hero of the game last night.

Rose finished with 28 points, Deng with 21 and Boozer with 14 but Gibson's 9 points were the biggest of them all.

Not only did Gibson serve Wade a facial but he brought energy off the bench for Chicago and helped spark a couple runs. Multiple blocks and nice assist set up other scoring plays and he was a key contributor in shutting down LeBron James when Deng needed a breather.

Miami didn't look out of sync, just were out played. Chicago's defense was SUFFOCATING to say the least.

Chris Bosh finished with a team high 30 points, Wade had 18 and LeBron scored just 15.

Game 1 went to the Bulls because they had a total team effort in the win but remember people, it was only game one.

I expect MIA to get back to to the drawing room and come out in Game 2 with a lot more aggression and make more of a game.
