The Chicago Bulls dispatched the Dwyane Wade-less Miami Heat, 107-87, and almost went wire-to-wire against the defending champions. Miami's only lead was during the first two-and-a-half minutes of the game. Carlos Boozer scored a team-high 27 points for the Bulls while Joakim Noah took care of cleaning the glass.
The Bulls had a huge 49-27 advantage in rebounds and scored 25 second-chance points to Miami's four. Noah alone outrebounded the entire Heat team 10-9 through the first half. He finished with a game-high 15 rebounds and 17 points, grabbing so many boards his hands trembled with excitement. (Not really but here's a GIF):
