Chicago vs. Miami

With Chicago vs. Miami facing each other tonight for the first time this season, thought I would get a thread started to see what everyone opinion on the game is and what they're looking forward to seeing. As this match-up is most likely the first of four preview of the eastern conference final.

---

News regarding who's playing.

As far as I’m aware Miami has their full squad tonight, whilst the Bulls will be without Deng and Rip is uncertain to play.

---

What I will be keeping an item on:

  • With Deng out, and Rip uncertain. I will be looking to see if the Bulls will be able to contain Wade and LeBron. The most likely situation given the injuries will be that Brewer will spend most of the game guarding LeBron and Rose will guard Wade, with Kyle Korver and the smaller guards guarding Miami’s PG. So will be interesting to see if they can contain them without their starting SF. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if you see Miami going with LeBron and Wade at PG during the most the game in order to create mismatches, using Miller and Battier given the Bulls situation.
  • The other thing I will be looking at is if the Heat can cope with the Bulls frontcourt. In last year's playoff with Noah/Boozer not at 100% and Asik injured, they never got to feel the full force of the Bulls big men. So will be interested to see how Miami goes about defending them and how the cope.

---

I personally think the difference and the winner will be determined by who wins on the mismatches, Miami in the backcourt or the Bulls in the frontcourt.Whichever one wins that will the game.

Anyway I’m still hoping we get a good close game and we get another

im always looking forward to

im always looking forward to seeing the heat lose, but i dont care for the bulls either. But it should be fun. Not having deng hurts the bulls big time though. rose has to be the best player on the court for the bulls to win this one and im interested to see if that happens.

I love rose and all but he

I love rose and all but he looks so afraid out there. He should be trying to drive every single play. He is playing like a wimp and backing down to Lebron. Right now it looks like Lebron wants it more which is strange considering Rose and bron's history. Hopefully Rose will be more agressive and take control of his team.

I don't see a problem with Rose at all.

Rip Hamilton's defense is way better than I thought.

LeBron shoots the same pull

LeBron shoots the same pull up jumper going to his left... You think they'd figure that out by now. I mean, if he elevates over you and makes it, then so be it. But that move shouldn't be fooling anybody. He almost never pulls up going to his right.

Deng

Considering that the Bulls are still right in this against a injury-free Miami, missing probably their best defender and 2nd/3rd scoring option in Deng. I fail to see everyone's view that the Heat will make the finals, beating the Bulls on their way so easily.

---

In regards to the game, time for Kyle Korver to start draining down those three's. Bulls to win xD.

Paul Pierce always does the exact same turnaround every single time in late game situations and no one has ever figured that out either. It's disappointing.
