The Chicago Bulls, in a game for the ages and history on the line, came back from a 19-point deficit to triumph heroically over the Denver Nuggets in front of tens of thousands of adoring fans, as they secured the fourth undefeated preseason in club history and their first championship since Michael Jordan.
Tears may have been shed, but there was no rioting in the streets reported.
In actuality, the game was only slightly less meaningless because of the fact it did mean an undefeated preseason. The Bulls did come back from a horrid first half, which included missing all 12 of their three-point attempts.
It also was last year’s playoff hero, Nate Robinson's, return the United Center, so fans couldn’t even really boo.
However, in the second half, the Bulls took command of the game with a 36-18 third-quarter domination.
The Nuggets came back to tie, but the Bulls pulled away at the end to secure their eighth win in as many tries and the “preseason championship.”
There is no word yet on whether the Miami Heat will allow the Bulls to receive their rings, too, before tipoff.
