Even without Derrick Rose, Chicago fans are still watching the Bulls in record numbers.

The Bulls' victory over the Miami Heat on Wednesday drew a 6.2 rating in Chicago on ESPN, making it the highest rated regular season game in the city in the network's history.

Overall, the game did a 2.2 national rating, making it the third-highest rated game of the season for ESPN.

The Bulls play the Heat two more times this season, in Chicago on April 12 and in Miami on April 19.

The Bulls defeated the Heat 106-102 without Rose, who sat out with a groin injury.
