Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls: Postgame Grades and Analysis
Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat's historic winning streak will forever stand at 27 games, thanks to the Chicago Bulls and their 101-97 win over Miami.

The Heat couldn't stop the Bulls early on, allowing 55 first half points, which is only 37 points less than the Bulls' per-game average this season—92.8 points.

It wasn't until the second half when LeBron and company turned up the defensive heat, allowing just 14 points in the third quarter.

Unfortunately for the sake of the Heat's streak, the Bulls proved that was just a fluke with 32 points in the fourth.

The Bulls were led by aggressive and intelligent defense, discipline on the glass with 12 offensive boards, and most importantly, constant energy on both sides of the ball.

LeBron James dropped 32 points on 11-of-17 shooting, but that wasn't enough for the Heat, as they dropped just their first game in nearly the past two months.

Miami's 27-game win streak will live on in NBA history, but so will the Bulls' impressive performance that shut it down.

All the credit goes to the Bulls for their well-balanced and energetic effort against a team that hasn't been beaten since February 1.
