Chicago has been absolutely cursed this year with injuries. Between Rose, Cutler, Forte, Toews, Sharp, Deng, Urlacher etc. it has been simply ridiculous.

No doubt. But Spo definitely doesn't know how to take the advantage of having Wade and LeBron on the same team. Wade has been underused this year and certainly not been comfortable in the offense.

Obviously, but I do think he would have hoped he wouldn't have to carry a team as much on his shoulders as Cleveland.

In this case, it might not be as much offensively as it was in Cleveland, but I'd argue he carries Miami more defensively than he did n Cleveland. I think the system and his role as basically a free safety is a big reason, but Cleveland also had a lot of good defenders and a very good defensive coach in Brown.

I was worried about the Heat defense early on...but it's certainly racheted things up. However, it seems like all Chicago has been doing all game is taking deep jumpers. It was just that early on, they were hitting them. They need to find some more aggression on offense and try and put that defense on their heels. The Heat have too many good perimeter defenders to be living out there.

I don't know if you watch a lot of Bulls games but John Lucas doesn't have that ability to pass the ball. Neither Watson or Lucas can even perform a basic pick and roll. Which is why when Rose is out this team plays live by the jump shot die by the jump shot.
