LeBron James’ argument was heard, but Bulls backup center Nazr Mohammed dismissed his case. After the Bulls snapped the Heat’s 27-game winning streak Wednesday at the United Center, James expressed frustration over some hard fouls, deeming them borderline basketball plays.
Mohammed deemed it much ado about nothing, especially when compared to the NBA of 15 years ago.
“Yeah, honestly, I didn’t think it was that physical of a game,’’ Mohammed said. ‘‘I hate to say that, but it was a regular basketball game. It wasn’t any more physical than any other night. There are some nights that games are a little less physical, but it wasn’t playoff-level physical.”
