Tune in at 8:00 PM ET as the Heat take on the Bulls. James Herbert will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
So this is kinda crazy: LeBron James has never beaten the Bulls in Chicago as a member of the Heat.
I kind of have a feeling that will change tonight. The Heat have been on fire.
Kirk Hinrich is sitting out tonight for Chicago due to right elbow soreness.
Mike Miller will miss his sixth straight game for Miami due to an ear infection.
The Heat have won eight games in a row.
I was hoping the trade deadline today would be more exciting.
@gurpreet: Regular season.
@medrodmen: This is very true.
Yay, Marv Albert and Steve Kerr are calling this game.
Heat starters: Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Udonis Haslem, Chris Bosh
Bulls starters: Nate Robinson, Richard Hamilton, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah
First possession, nice ball movement from the Bulls but Hamilton misses from the left corner.
James sets up Bosh for a midrange jumper from the left side, Bosh knocks it down.
Aside from that weird All-Star Game performance, Bosh has been on fiiiire for the last little while.
Noah gets a two handed dunk on the inside for Chicago to tie it up.
Heat can't score, neither can the Bulls as Robinson misses a jumper on the break.
Chalmers gets all the way to the hole and gets an easy layup.
10 minutes to go in the first quarter.
Deng misses a jumper from the right corner.
James loses the ball on the break, turnover.
Noah loses the ball, James gets a layup on the other end.
@gumbynation: Yeah that was weird.
Hamilton turns the ball over on the baseline. This Heat defense looks engaged right now.
Turnover by the Heat, Chalmers made a nice cut but couldn't handle LeBron's pass. Out of bounds.
Nine minutes left in the first.
Hamilton makes a jumper on the right baseline, Heat up 6-4.
Teams exchange turnovers, wow. Sloppy ball.
Chalmers makes a WIDE open jumper.
Another turnover by the Bulls, James with a steal.
And James scores over Noah on the break.
@Chani: I think more than 2.
Robinson drives to the basket and is fouled on the left side, two shots coming up.
