The overriding sentiment at the end of the Miami Heat's Game 5 win over the Chicago Bulls -- a win that saw Miami use a game-ending 18-3 run to come away with a 83-80 victory -- was one of shock. In a low-scoring game, with Dwyane Wade struggling, to see Miami storm back for a 12-point deficit over about three minutes of game action, with a parade of three-pointers and great defensive stands -- mixed in with some cringe-worthy miscues by Chicago, to be sure -- was the most surreal experience of the NBA Playoffs to date.
"We don’t even know what happened," said Wade. [...] "I’m not going to lie to you and say we do."
"We don’t honestly know what happened," said LeBron. [...] "We know some big plays happened and we know we won the game. It went so fast."
There you have it: the two players most responsible for the completely jaw-dropping finish have no clue how to assess what happened. In a playoffs filled with blank stares of disbelief and reason suspended, the Heat took it to another level, amazing even themselves.
