06:58 AM ET 05.08 | LeBron James has just about a foot on Nate Robinson, which might make for an interesting matchup in Game 2. The Heat was outgunned 35-24 in the final period [of Game 1], with the Bulls scoring the final 10 points of the game. At the center of Chicago's dominant late-game charge was diminutive point guard Nate Robinson, who scored nine of the Bulls' final 12 points, including the last seven of the game. ... The Heat's frontcourt players share equal responsibility for picking up Robinson once he moves into the paint. After Monday's defensive debacle, LeBron James said he "wouldn't be surprised" if he was "stuck" guarding Robinson late in games. "I'll take the challenge on anyone," James said.

Lebron sounds a little upset, he probably going to foul out the entire Bulls front line tonight.

I have a strong feeling the Heat play with a different energy tonight than Monday.

That will get Bron exhausted. I wonder how much more can Bron do in offense if that's the case.

Is this how far Wade has fallen off? I get Chalmers and Norris not being up to the task... but come one.

If this guy is better than Sid Moncrief then he should be able to handle a 5'9" journeyman! :)

A 5'9" journeyman that can score though. He's a journeyman because of his sour attitude at times.

No question they were sleepwalking Monday. LBJ with 2 points at halftime was probably a good indicator.

true, but he still finished with his normal stat line from the season
so he woke up, maybe the rest of the cast didn't

JJ Berea also gave the Heat fits in the finals the Mavs won.

Yeah but you might be forgetting about a guy who gave them bigger fits....Dirk Nowitzki, the heat had no answers for him

Little Nate is going to run circles around him. I always liked him, and wish he was back in NY.

How about stopping with the excuses and just call it a loss

I'm waiting for the excuse next season on the Cavs. It'll be a doozy!!!

LBJ was the only one who did wake up. Plus, the Bulls played out their butts. Miami will sweep them away.

Kind of impossible to sweep them at this point smart one, or do they not teach that at the "unlimited potential" symposium you attended yesterday instead of coming in here and getting blasted.
