"We felt like we could compete against anybody," Chicago’s Joakim Noah said. "This is just a really exciting situation right now. The position that we're in is unbelievable. We feel like we're not satisfied, have a long way to go. Nobody believed that we could be in this position right now. We're not worried about the praise. We're not worried about the criticism. We're just focused on what we need to do, and we believe in each other."

Coming into this game, Chicago definitely had an advantage Against The Spread based on recent trends.

Chicago had gone 3-0 against Miami in their last three head-to-head games.  Now they are 4-0.

The Heat were 0-5 Against The Spread in their last 5 vs. NBA Central.  Now they are 0-6 ATS.

The Heat were 0-6 ATS in their last 6 playoff games as an underdog.  Now they are 0-7 ATS. 

ESPN.com noted that the Bulls won because “they crashed the boards, created 2nd-chance opportunities, and took care of the ball especially in the 2nd half. The Bulls enjoyed a +13 advantage on the offensive glass, scored 23 more 2nd chance points, and turned it over just one time after halftime.”

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now.
