My mind tells me Miami wins but I hope Chicago in 6.

If the Bulls have a shot to win this series they need to keep the game in the low 80s...high scoring game fits Miami with all the scorers they have, no way Bulls can matchup with them in a shootout

If the bulls can play like they did tonight...they can pull off this series. The hawks and the heat draw a lot of iso plays with the main difference being that the heat's first three obviously outclasses the hawks' big three many times over

I see Miami winning this. The only reason that the Heat might have a lot of trouble is if Carlos Boozer comes to play. If he and Noah make Bosh work, he'll be quiet offensively, and I don't see Lebron or Wade tag teaming on away games.

Bibby/Chalmers - Rose (Rose will probably be on Wade)
Wade - Bogans
Bron - Deng
Bosh - Boozer
Anthony - Noah

Lebron can just out muscle Deng, but he can't be too crafty because Deng has those quick hands on D. Deng will also run through a lot of screens, making Lebron run after him. Wade and Rose both have to work on both ends of the floor obviously if they're guarding eachother. Boozer is the X Factor for the Bulls. If he steps up big, they can win this series. Noah will just out hustle Anthony and get his on his offensive boards.

Both teams are great in transition as well as guarding the fast break. We'll see which team brings in more heart. Miami is playing their only series that they will play on the road, so the games at Chicago will tell a lot about how successful this team really is.

Bulls in 6.

Two reasons: D-Rose and Coach Thibodeau.

Defensive scheme against the Heat will be masterful. Expect A LOT of jumpshots from Wade/James.

The Bulls offense came alive somewhat in the 2nd round. At least, more players showed they could contribute than in RD 1 when it was all Rose & Korver.

They need to attack, attack, attack.

They can do it, especially if Wade & James both don't get marched to the line.

Will not happen you touch them FT's. If Luol Deng gets into foul trouble its gonna be a quick series for Miami. He is the key to Chicago winning.

Heat in 6.

I'm rooting for the Bulls, but the Heat are simply better.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

But this almost impossible. I think Chicago will win the series, but then I think about how much pressure Bron and Wade put on a defense and draw so many fouls. The Bulls bench is far superior to Miami's bench, but I have to see if Bosh actually contributes in this series.

Chicago is going to win this series, but I'll give Miami game 1

Lebron and Wade can average 30 a peice (like they did last series), but if Bosh doesn't become more of an offensive threat Miami is [expletive]ed. Chicago has the luxury of rotating Boozer, Gibson, and Noah on him which gives them the upperhand.

Rose needs to shoot as close to 50% as possible and attack the rim more than often especially if Wade decides to take a jab at him. Chalmers and Bibby don't stand a chance against him.
