Celtics Weren't The Only Ones To Choke Sunday

Oops.

The Eastern Conference Bulls were playing the Heat Sunday night and choked away the game. It wasn't allowing a 12-0 run at the end of a game against a lottery team, but that isn't going to make Derrick Rose feel any better.

The odds had to overwhelmingly be in Chicago’s favor. Down by a point with 22.7 seconds left, with Derrick Rose heading to the line to shoot a pair of free throws. The reigning NBA MVP. He was a perfect 29 for 29 from the foul line in the fourth quarter this season. As if this moment needed extra significance, it was coming against the Miami Heat, the team that downed Rose and the Bulls in last season’s Eastern Conference finals by taking the series’ last four games.

Rose missed the first.

Missed the second, too.

And missed a potentially game-tying jumper with 3.7 seconds left to boot, as somehow the Heat held on for a wild 97-93 win on Sunday.

Win some, lose some. It happens.
