Chicago Bulls still have Miami Heat’s number in regular season
The Chicago Bulls improved to 7-2 in the regular season against the Miami Heat since 2010-11 with a 96-89 victory on Friday. There was a lot to like about it.
The story of the 2012-13 Chicago Bulls is one of an ever-growing divide between what you can see and what you can’t.
It was a foundation laid in the days immediately following playoff elimination at the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers.
The top-seeded Bulls didn’t just lose to a No. 8 seed, they also lost Derrick Rose for an indefinable amount of time to a torn ACL, an injury that subsequently caused the organization to dismantle the same self-proclaimed “Bench Mob” that proved so vital to the team’s success over the last two seasons for financial reasons.
But for whatever angst the offseason caused, it was never meant as an extension of the faces and names that make up these Bulls.
The primary components are all still here, save for one very notable absence.
As the Bulls have clawed their way to an 18-13 record, currently fifth-best in the conference, they’ve done it the same way they always have.
