Default In Bulls-Heat Game 1, Chris Bosh was good, the rest not so much

For Miami's Big Three, Chris Bosh opened some eyes with a very efficient 30-point game, but for once, seemingly, his teammates didn't step up. LeBron James went 5-for-15 and scored 15 points, and Dwyane Wade did only slightly better, going 7-for-17 for 18 points. While James and Wade struggled against the Bulls' team defense that denied them penetration for much of the game, Rose hit the big shots and had a steadying effect on his team as it took a confidence-infusing 1-0 lead in this much-awaited series pitting 99 percent of the basketball-watching world against Miami.

"We just stick to what we've been doing all year long," Gibson said. "Just rebound the ball, play solid defense and it played big keys [for us] tonight. We didn't think we'd win the game on [just] offensive rebounds and playing hard, but that's how our team is. We're rugged. I'm just happy the way guys came out real aggressive and played with a lot of heart tonight." The Bulls, especially Gibson, also played with a fire that got Miami's attention. Even Wade had to tip his hat to the second-year forward after the facial he gave the former Finals MVP.
