The Heat eliminated the Bulls from the playoffs in Game 5 not only because they’re by far the better (and healthier) team, but also because they can get random big plays from just about anyone on the roster.
This drive and dunk from Norris Cole that he threw down midway through the fourth quarter was just the latest example.
On a team with as many stars as Miami has, including the game’s best player in LeBron James, it might be difficult for the lesser players to know when (and sometimes, if) it’s OK for them to be personally aggressive. Cole had no problem doing that in this one, taking the ball right down the lane for the monster jam with his team trailing by one at the time.
