Joakim Noah
vs Brooklyn - Game 2, Apr 22: This one came down to pure heart. Although Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer, too, posted double-doubles for the Bulls in the game, Noah’s effort was extra special. The Chicago center played despite a nasty case of plantar fasciitis in his right foot and yet managed 11 points and 10 boards on his own. It was the kind of effort that spurred the Bulls to a 90-82 win, squaring the first-round series 1-1.
