VIDEO: Nate Robinson is the hero Chicago needs

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The Bulls lead Miami 1-0. This is a thing that happened. Won 27 games in a row, No.1 seed in the NBA, swept the first round, a week of rest, and Chicago dragged that same Heatteam down in the dirt and swallowed it alive. And the jaws that closed? They belonged to little Nate Robinson.


And throw in some throwback Lebron James choking action from 2011:

And there you have it.

Chicago played the game it wanted, a tough, tight battle with few fouls called and low shooting percentages. Maybe the Heat were rusty. Maybe not. But on two days' rest, after a grueling series, and without two of its best players in Kirk Hinrich and Luol Deng -- never mind Derrick Rose -- Chicago walked into Miami and took Game 1.

The Bulls lead 1-0. This is the world we live in.
