Baby Bulls Nix Heat
Do you remember watching Michael Jordan stun the Jazz in ’98? For Chicago fans, the Bulls turned the page to a new chapter, sweeping the defending champion Heat and moving to the second round as Michael Jordan’s old Chicago jersey hung over the Miami Heat’s home floor, a tribute to the six-time NBA champion. Now, a new bunch of Bulls want a title of their own after ending the Heat’s reign atop the league with a four-game sweep. Ben Gordon scored 24 points and Luol Deng had 22 to lead Chicago past Miami 92-79 Sunday in Game 4 to clinch the first-round Eastern Conference series. The Bulls advanced in the postseason for the first time since Jordan’s last title in 1998. Chicago, which meets Detroit next, became the first team to oust a defending champion in the first round since Phoenix did it to San Antonio in 2000. It’s going to be an exciting second round series against Detroit, so feel free to call me directly for pricing and availability.
