Bulls end Heat’s 27-game winning streak

By K.C. Johnson, Chicago Tribune reporter
Wednesday morning, hours before the Bulls applied the brakes to the Heat’s run at history, Tom Thibodeau was asked if he had mentioned their 27-game winning streak.

“What streak?” Thibodeau said.

On a night when 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.
