Bulls get mad in loss to Heat in round 2, Game 2
The Chicago Bulls, who thrive on literally knocking their opponents off their game, fell on the same sword in a monumental playoff loss Wednesday night.
Not only was the 37-point margin of defeat to the Miami Heat the largest the Bulls have ever suffered, they were assessed six technical fouls and had two players ejected.
After the 115-78 drubbing, the Bulls let it be known that they were frustrated by their own play, their inability to stop the Heat and also with calls that weren’t going their way.
“You’re competitors, you’re going to go out there and do everything you can. If you feel like you’re getting cheated, you’re going to say something about it,” Carlos Boozer said.
All the frustration boiled over early in the fourth quarter as the Heat rout turned into a runaway. After Marquis Teague was called for a foul on a Ray Allen layup, Bulls center Joakim Noah said something to official Scott Foster. He was immediately hit with his second technical foul of the game and ejected.
