Bulls lose 4th straight at home
It was a vintage D. Wade performance in his backyard. He hit a clutch jumper with 22 seconds left to give Miami an 89-84 win over the Bulls who were coming off of a big win in Cleveland over the Cavaliers. Wade finished with 28 pts 7 rebs and 5 ast. “Wade was tough in iso situations which led to open shots for Bosh,” said Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg. (Bosh finished with 18 pts and 7 rebs)
Derrick Rose left the game due to right hamstring/lower back soreness and will be re-evaluated in the morning. The Bulls continue to lack discipline defensively and never seem to execute and finish the job. Pau Gasol (19 pts 17 rebs) and Jimmy Butler (13 pts 6 rebs) got caught up in what Butler simply calls “miscommunication.” Wade drove and both Gasol and Butler stayed with Wade as he hit Bosh for a wide open jumper to take the lead before Wade took it home.
Tony Snell and Doug McDermott continue to struggle as they shot a combined 5 for 21 and look lost defensively. The Bulls will need much more from Bobby #KeepBPFree Portis, Niko Mirotic and Aaron Brooks as they start a 7 game road trip Thursday in LA versus the Lakers.
