It didn't take long for the San Antonio Spurs to show the Chicago Bulls why they're leading the NBA.
The comparisons have started and surely will continue the further Florida advances in the postseason. They're inevitable, really, since the football-first school is a little short on basketball tradition.
When Masai Ujiri left the Denver Nuggets to take over basketball operations for the Toronto Raptors, many saw coach Dwane Casey's departure at the end of the season as a done deal.
Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler understand it.
From the tough defense to the rugged rebounding and passing big men, the Memphis Grizzlies and Chicago Bulls are practically mirror images.
The Chicago Bulls didn't get a great night from their starters Wednesday. Their backups made sure they didn't need one.
Tony Parker had 22 points and seven assists in his return from a six-game absence, leading the San Antonio Spurs' balanced attack in a 112-106 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night.
The Chicago Bulls were open all over the floor, so Joakim Noah kept collecting assists. Jumpers for Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich. A dunk for Taj Gibson, another jumper for Butler, and on and on it went.
Taj Gibson didn't worry when Chicago fell behind Dallas early, and he wasn't concerned when the Mavericks made a late run for the lead.
The Chicago Bulls are showing they can score points as well as limit them. And when they do both, they can make beating even a good team look easy.
Kirk Hinrich made all the right moves for the Chicago Bulls in the final minute of the game.
LeBron James watched from the bench in a stylish gray suit, and with the game deadlocked at halftime, he took off his necktie.
Aaron Brooks watched attentively as Denver assistant Melvin Hunt used a laptop to go over the Nuggets' system. Jan Vesely also kept a close watch on the screen from his seat on the other side of Hunt.
This one was all over in the first quarter, right about the time Jimmy Butler's only 3-pointer made it a 20-point game.
Before his team faced the surging Bulls, Toronto coach Dwane Casey praised Chicago for being "at the head of the class" when it comes to defense.
"I want what they have - a championship," Noah said. "One day, we're going to have to get through those guys."
"It's really all my teammates," he said. "I think we're getting better every game."
