Heat lose, 93-87. Series swings back to Miami tied 2-2. Oh my. Lot of bickering shown on TV in the Heat huddle. Shaq limited again by fouls. Dwyane Wade and Jason Williams outplayed by Bulls guards. Chicago controlling offensive boards and seeming quicker.
Oh my and uh oh. This has become a huge battle for a championship-aspiring second-seed facing a No. 7. Makes you wonder how this Bulls team managed to finish only .500. Or if season-long suspicions about Heat susceptibility are simply being exposed.
Play the Seahawk card if you wish and blame the officiating, but doesn't Miami have the talent edge to overcome such things?
It's on Pat Riley now. The referendum is on the players he brought in, but also on his ability to find a way to make Miami's solid edge in personnel overcome Chicago's clear advantage in youth and quickness. He's got the two most dominant players in this series. Period.
Weigh in here with your thoughts on Game 4 and the series now as a whole. Here's a starter question, Heat fan. How worried are you?
