The Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 111-106 to take 1-0 series lead. The Heat had double digit leads but the Bulls kept fighting back but it wasn't enough. Udonis Haslem got angry after a no foul call and threw his mouth guard at the ref and got ejected and might be suspended or fined from the league. Also Flash left the game with 8.6 seconds left because of cramps in his leg nothing bad for the Heat. Shaq had a big night with 27 points and 16 boards in 37 minutes. O'Neal doesn't have any more 40+ nights though this will get it done. Dwyane Wade got 30 points and 11 assists in 45 minutes. Wade had to chip in more minutes but he's well rested for the playoffs. Jason Williams got 17 points and 4 boards in 33 minutes. JWill played a good game and still needs to get better from a season with injuries. Antoine Walker got 10 points and 4 steals in 43 minutes. ESPN2 said he was allergic to defense and if you have four steals you've been taking defense medicine Toine. Zo still didn't play because of his calf injurie and hopefully he'll be back for game 2. Ben Gordon got 35 points and 3 assists in 45 minutes. Gordon was great and he kept them in the game with his three's. Andres Nocioni got 18 points and 16 boards in 42 minutes. Nocioni always plays great in the playoffs and the Bulls excpect that from him. GO BULLS!
