You'd be forgiven for not having paid super close attention to the second half of the Miami Heat's historic Game 2 beatdown of the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday evening. A game that was already starting to get out of hand late in the second, as Miami opened up a 14-point lead, quickly became a total laugher in the early stages of the third quarter and devolved from there into a game that Miami led at one point by 46 points. No judge in the land would convict you for choosing to flip around some.

That's some good excitement, Heat fan. If only all Miami backers practiced such positivity.
