Watch Nikola Mirotic Clothesline the Chicago Bulls Season Away
If you're a Chicago Bulls fan, I'm sure you're really disappointed at how they lost last night at home and got eliminated from the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The fact that the Bulls were tied up 2-2 in the series and weren't able to beat them in game five is one thing. I expected the Cavaliers to win because they were playing at home.
But, in game six, I expected the Bulls to come out strong and force a game seven. And that's how the game started. Bulls played great in the first quarter and had some momentum going into the second quarter. Then with about 5:18 left to go in the half, Bulls player Nikola Mirotic committed a dirty and stupid foul when he clotheslined Cavaliers player Iman Shumpert. Mirotic got called for a flagrant-1 foul but more importantly he angered the Cavaliers and they went on to close the quarter on a 17-4 run.
And the game was basically over at that point. Nice job Mirotic, you brought the Cavliers together as team. Enjoy watching the rest of playoffs at home just like the rest of us
