The Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night in one of the NBA's opening games of the season with a 107-95 victory.
After they got their well deserved Championship rings which were earned last season, they went on the court and showed that they are dedicated and determined as they have ever been.
Right after the tip-off, we saw a great steal by Mario Chalmers and an easy basket by Udonis Haslem on the other side.
But then the Bulls went on a 9-0 run and Erick Spoelstra was forced to take a first time out.
After the time out, the Heat outscored the Bulls 52-24 for the reminder of the first half and ended it ahead to the score of 54-33.
The Heat didn't slow down even after half time and ended a third quarter with a 20-point lead (78-58).
But in the middle of the fourth quarter, the Bulls really stepped on the gas, and after Kirk Hinrich made a three with five minutes left on the clock, the Bulls were down only by eight.
But the Heat saw off the challenge and after Wade's finger roll and LeBron James's drive to the basket, they slowly closed the game down and took their opening win of the season in relatively convincing fashion over a potential Eastern Conference title rival.
