LeBron James and Jimmy Butler get tangled up, receive double technicals (VIDEO)

Coming into Sunday’s contest, the Bulls had beaten the Heat six of the last seven times the teams met during the regular season in Chicago, and this video clip of action from the first half gives us a glimpse of the reason why.

Chicago plays harder than any team in the league on a game-by-game basis, and Jimmy Butler exemplified that in chasing down LeBron James, causing the turnover, and then continuing to scrap on the floor long after the play was finished.

    I love the way the Bulls play. Too bad they have an owner who is more interested in maximizing profit than in maximizing their chances of winning a title.

    LeBron is struggling from the field for a 3rd straight game. Can’t blame the sleeves. The smart teams are forcing him to shoot his unreliable jumper, & some fools actually think he’s the greatest of all time.

      Wow, his unreliable? Everyone has some bad streches.

      He still has tattoo sleeves

      Some fools criticize LeBron every chance they get and never give him any credit.

        I give him credit for joining D Wade & Bosh. He completely figured out he could never lead a team to a championship. I also give him credit for somehow not getting caught for obvious PED use.

        Lebron is the best

      • money2long - Mar 9, 2014 at 8:38 PM

        It comes with the territory.
        Some of his criticism is unwarranted, agreed.

        Did I say best of all time ?

    Surprised he didn’t hit the deck.

    Lol, “like a hockey fight”

    I give the Knicks credit for winning one playoff series in more than a decade.

    Playing chippy is a tactic that the bulls do well against the heat during the regular season with success.
    But during the playoffs it actually has the opposite effect. The bulls lose composer when the Heat match them in intensity.

      Chopin is my favourite composer, who’s yours?

    That kick could have been intentional. Hard to say. LeBron and Heat will own Chicago again in the playoffs if they meet. Heat have that extra gear that Chicago just can’t match.
