Wednesday morning, hours before the Bulls applied the brakes to the Heat's run at history, Chicago Coach Tom Thibodeau was asked if he had mentioned Miami's 27-game winning streak. "What streak?" Thibodeau said. Indeed, on a night in which the only Derrick Rose appearance came via a bobblehead doll and Joakim Noah, Richard Hamilton and Marco Belinelli also sat with injuries, the Bulls made history disappear. The second-longest winning streak in North American major professional sports league history is over thanks to a 101-97 victory that, out of nowhere, rekindled talk of a lengthy Bulls' postseason run. Heat, meet grit.

Daniels threw for 232 yards and three touchdowns, and the Bulls rebounded from two subpar defensive performances to frustrate running back Noel Devine and the 20th-ranked Mountaineers in a 30-19 victory Friday night at Tampa, Fla. The Bulls (6-2, 2-2 Big East) gave up 75 points and 887 yards in conference losses to Cincinnati and Pittsburgh the previous two weeks, yet found a way to hold Devine to his lowest rushing total of the season.

Leading by 12, 3:02 from sending the series back to Miami, the Bulls gulped, Miami finished on an 18-3 run and it was summer in Chicago.

The swarm descended upon Derrick Rose. Microphones and recorders poked in from all angles. Cameras zoomed and focused. Then questions rained like a monsoon. It wasn't like this at last year's NBA All-Star game in Dallas. There were only 15 to 20 media types who talked to him then during the typical All-Star media session. "Now," he said Friday as the hoard at hand for the All-Star game Sunday night all but enveloped him, "it's crazy. " Three times he was asked about being the NBA's leading MVP candidate, and three times Rose lowered his head and uttered, softly, "I wish I was. " He added he owed everything to his teammates, who "cover up all my mistakes.
