DEERFIELD, Ill. – A little trash talk before facing the Miami Heat has been shown to have undesirable results so the Chicago Bulls will attempt to kill their next opponent with kindness.
The Bulls will try to end the Heat’s 27-game winning streak Wednesday night at the United Center and before they square off against the defending champions they have made sure to give them the utmost respect.
The Heat’s win streak is now the second longest in NBA history and is just six away from matching the record 33 consecutive by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.
“It’s an impressive streak,” Kirk Hinrich said. “Obviously they’re playing at a high level every night. It’s not an easy thing to do in this league.”
