Heat Offense: I said before this series started that Shaquille O'Nealneeded a monster series for the Heat to win easily. The Bulls have no answers for Shaq. He had 27 points and the Heat went to him early and often. The Bulls have no one who legitimately can guard Shaq. Tyson Chandler tried but fouled out. Malik Allen, and Mike Sweetney are not even big enough to matter. The Heat will continue to pound the ball into Shaq until they win this series.
Dwyane Wade lit up the Bulls in the fourth quarter. He almost doubled his point total with 14 points in that last period. Heat coach Pat Riley will continue to get Wade the ball in pick-and-roll and isolation situations to take advantage of his great one-on-one attacking abilities.
