Bulls didn't back down, but couldn't pull it off

It would have been the most improbable of wins. To beat Miami on their home floor down 3-1 when most teams fold. Especially after the Heat rolled to an early 14 point lead.

Will the Knicks and 76ers have a tank battle over Chicago?

With Miami's loss to Boston, the Bulls are locked into the #1 seed in the East. The 76ers already announced they'll rest Iguodala, Brand, and Williams in the final two games prior to the playoffs. Who could say they're tanking? Players typically go out there and try to win games, and coaches tank games by just not putting the best players on the floor. Or so goes the theory...

The Chicago Bulls haven’t played their best game in the playoffs thus far, but they’ve still managed to put a stranglehold on their first round playoff series with Indiana.   94% of the time the home team wins the first two games of a series, they go on to win the entire series, and I...
