Bulls reserves provide spark that leads to rout
The Bulls' first quarter on Monday night could serve as an instructional manual on how not to return from a 2-0 trip that included a victory over the defending champion Heat.
The Bulls treated defense as if it were optional. They turned the ball over as if it were covered in oil. They might've damaged the United Center rims with some of their errant jumpers.
Then Nate Robinson, Taj Gibson and Marco Belinelli checked in. And the bench provided a blueprint that the starters eventually followed in a 118-92 victory over the Cavaliers that featured a season high in points and tied season-bests in field goals (44), assists (34) and 3-pointers (10).
