2013 NBA Playoffs: Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls Game 5 Time, Place, Predictions

Miami Heat 3 – 1 Chicago Bulls

Time: Wednesday, May 15 at 7:00 P.M. ET

TV Network: TNT

At: American Airlines Arena, Miami

The Chicago Bulls looked exhausted and perhaps even done, as they dropped game 4 at home and have now fallen behind 3-1 to the reigning NBA champions. They will now face the near-impossible task of beating the Miami Heat in three straight games, starting with today’s contest in Miami.

Dwyane Wade has struggled with his bruised knee, and could even sit out game 5 in order to rest it. Doing such a thing in the playoffs could prove to be a risky move, but considering how well the Heat have managed even with Wade on the sidelines, they could very well make the gamble.

Players to watch

Miami Heat – Chris Bosh followed up his 20-19 night with another efficient game. He has regained the confidence in his mid-range jumper and did not hesitate taking it. If Wade does sit out, look for Bosh to have a big game and help LeBron James carry the scoring load.

Chicago Bulls – Nate Robinson connected on 0 of his 12 shot attempts in game 4. Needless to say, the Bulls cannot win if Nate is not hitting his shots.

Prediction: The Bulls look like they have given up. Miami is extremely strong at home, and will win this game even if Wade is rested.
