BULLS TURN OFF THE HEAT

0

The Miami Heat received their championship rings in an elaborate pre-game celebration to kickoff the NBA season. Then they went out and looked about as inspired as a dope fiend in a good nod as the Bulls ran them off the court, 108-66.

Looking lazy and overmatched, the Heat showed for at least one game why many prognosticators see a new NBA champ come June.

Kirk Hinrich celebrated his new contract in style, shooting 10-18 and scoring 26 pts and leading the Bulls.

Some other highlights:

  • Tyrus Thomas had a nice debut. He had a highlight-reel tip-jam on an offensive rebound. He was almost directly underneath the hoop and sprung up to throw it down. That play came moments after he got sky-high to block a shot by Shaq.
  • The Bulls were consistently and effectively on the fast break. They beat the Heat on the boards 49-29, then got out and ran. Having shot-blockers and Ben Wallace is already paying dividends. They outlet the ball quickly and get up the floor. So much fun to watch.
  • The interior defense is much better. The difference between P.J. Brown/Ben Wallace and Tyson Chandler/Mike Sweetney is amazing.
  • Ben Gordon was only 1-9. Imagine the offense when he scores his average.
