    If there is one vulnerable spot on the Heat it is size — if you ask people from the Bulls and Pacers why they think they can dethrone the champions, it is being able to play bigger and Miami not being able to counter that. Miami tried to deal with that by giving 6’10” Chris…

    Kenneth Faried

    That didn’t look anything like the Chicago Bulls that has been a defensive force and a top-four team in the East despite missing the recent league MVP that leads their offense. That did look everything like the hot Denver Nuggets that came into Thursday having won seven in a row, 21 of 24 at home…
