I can't rule out Chicago winning the series, but it would blow my mind if they pull it off. Miami in five or six.

Rose has no business returning at thsi point, and that's not me being critical it's just common sense. The Bulls as how they are now deserve all the praise, it's only when you look at each players ills that you realize how banged up they are.

 

Plus even a healthy Bulls team with Rose, i just don't see them winning against 'this' Miami team who is much better than last year's.

So Luol Deng may not play this series. Great. Can it get any easier for Miami?

They should let a team of the Western Conference Finals opponents play Miami in the Finals. Just to make it interesting.

Tony Parker / Reggie Jackson
Kawhi Leonard / Manu Ginobili
Kevin Durant / Kevin Martin
Serge Ibaka / Tiago Splitter
Tim Duncan / Kendrick Perkins

Miami can't afford to take 3 quarters off against a team like the Bulls, not having Deng i guess hurts them defensively in terms of guarding LeBron. 

But the question of this series isn't that, the question of this series is in what kind of condition Dwayne Wade is coming in.  It's no secret he's battling a lot of pain and injuries, if the Bulls make it a tough grind it out game that requires Wade to play heavy minutes he could wear down.

The other thing people need to look at is that Miami can't take 3 quarters off against a Bulls team like they did against the Bucks.

Miami looked unstoppable against the Bucks and should have, the Bucks were a 38-44 team that made it into the playoffs because Toronto is so terrible.  If Miami had lost one game of that series it would have been very telling and they definitely wouldn't be a repeat favorite.

Chicago is depleted but they'll put up more of a fight, MUCH more and will more often than not force Miami to battle for 4 quarters.

Aside from maybe one blowout where Miami can't miss anything the Bulls are gonna make them fight.

Only way I see Miami winning easily is if the Bulls run out of gas from fighting to get here so toughly and not having a lot of rest between game 7 and now.

If the heat do the "we'll take 3 quarters" off strategy against the Bulls they are gonna lose.

Lots of Bulls fans not expecting to win the series but they hope to at least rough up the Heat for the next round.

These turnover streaks from Chicago are almost Laker-like.

Wow they might actually steal game 1!

 

Noah has been an excellent defense anchor.
