Miami Heat 2 – 1 Chicago Bulls
Time: Monday, May 13 at 7:00 P.M. ET
TV Network: TNT
At: United Center, Chicago, IL
After dropping game 1 at home, the Miami Heat have bounced back and won two straight games. Monday evening they will attempt to take a 3-1 advantage back to South Beach, while the Chicago Bulls are virtually in a must-win situation.
The key to these series has so far been physical play and emotions. Miami and Chicago don’t like each other and it has shown on the floor. Joakim Noah has received a technical foul in each of the 3 games, and the Bulls have had several players ejected after being unable to control their emotions.
Kirk Hinrich, Luol Deng and Derrick Rose are still questionable for the Bulls.
Players to watch
Miami Heat – Chris Bosh recorded 20 points and a career-playoff-high 19 rebounds in game 3. After struggling through most of the playoffs, Bosh might have found his groove.
Chicago Bulls – Nate Robinson has been the key to the Bulls’ success in these playoffs. With a depleted backcourt, Chicago depends on the little guard to carry the load on offense and energize the team.
Prediction: After their first playoff loss, the Heat have played significantly better and will take a 3-1 lead back to Miami.
