The refs were busy calling several technical fouls.

Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were both ejected for technical fouls.

LeBron James took the game over early and often.

James was 6/6 from the floor to start the game.

James finished with 19 points, 5 rebounds, and 9 assists.

Chris Bosh contributed early in the third quarter, finishing with 13 points and 5 rebounds.

Dwyane Wade scored 15 points on 7/11 shooting.

In game 2, Robinson scored just 11 points.

According to TNT's broadcast, Bulls guard Derrick Rose could return for Game 3 Friday night in Chicago.
