Hey, Miami Heat fan: How do you feel about Joakim Noah, the Chicago Bulls center who just got ejected for arguing with a referee early in the fourth quarter of Game 2 on Wednesday night?
Oh, OK, cool.
Two nights after the Bulls bested the Heat in one of the most remarkable wins of the NBA season, Miami handed Chicago the worst loss in Bulls franchise history, a nasty, physical 37-point drubbing that featured nine technical fouls and ejections for Bulls reserve Taj Gibson and All-Star center Noah.
Check out video of the ejections, plus Noah's postgame reaction, after the jump.
After the game, Noah took responsibility for the actions that got him the gate:
Joakim Noah says he deserved to be ejected: "I just wanted to let the referee know how I felt about the game."

And he also offered a pitch-perfect description of the Bulls' emotional state throughout Game 2:
Joakim Noah characterized the Bulls' composure as such: "not being very zen." — Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) May 9, 2013
Seems like there was a lot of that going around. Even in the stands.
Game 3 tips off at United Center in Chicago at 8 p.m. EDT on Friday.
