The Heat are going to win tonight and the next game. Nothing against Chicago, but they literally have no bench right now. Look how good their starters played game 3 and they still game up short. Miami has had one easy rode to the finals. Well deserved but jeez come on. Probably won't have a real challenge till the Finals...

The knee has to be affecting him more then they are letting on cuz he doesn't have his legs but I would still want him out there even if its just defense.

i like what chicago is doing early on, even thought they're down. a few of those threes will hit and they'll be a bit better off.

focusing more on rebounding and less on trying to be overtly physical. just play defense and rebound and they'll be fine.


and as i type the lead balloons from 7 to 13. so, yeah...

What happened to the energy they had entering the series? And why the **** is Deng still out? Is he still "too sick"? And Wade looks like he doesn't want to play professional basketball anymore.

Wade isn't injured. He's had no lift all year. He's went from a top 3 player to top 15. He's a shell. Just like Amare is. Both their games were built on explosiveness and Wade never learned how to adapt. He's been awful this postseason, not even getting 13 points a game.

the heat are probably at their apex. wade isn't gonna get better or younger. bosh isn't gonna get better. battier and allen are gonna fall off a cliff soon. they won't have money to spend.

Can you please stop talking about efficiency? None of these guys shot well before they came together. It's not hard when you put three superstars together, add in the best three point shooter in the NBA, add in the best bench, add in two of the best glue guys in the NBA in Battier and Chalmers and let them run.

It's not hard. Anthony shot 45% this year. He would shoot 50% too if he was on that team. They all get open looks. Everyone is efficient. When talking efficiency, please leave out the Heat. It's not even fair in that case.

Durant shooting 52% is ridiculous. But don't tell me if Melo and LeBron switched places LeBron would shoot 56%. Because he wouldn't.

That's a lot a stringers. U don't need to exageratte, we get it

lol I'm not.....never would Teague play. And this was in response to the kid who said the Heat out stack everyone...just saying it wasn't a fair fight. I still think Heat would have won the series in 6 but still. I also think they wipe the floor in the ECF and go to the Finals.

Happy to win.....but man it truly is unfortunate the injuries the Bulls have. I'd love to see a Heat-Bulls series when both teams are fully healthy.

Ya, the most boring team to watch in the NBA is the Heat. They have taken the sport out of basketball. Superstars should never take less money to team up. Such a disgrace.

if you want to see boring basketball, go to a sixer's game.

Can you please stop talking about efficiency? None of these guys shot well before they came together. It's not hard when you put three superstars together, add in the best three point shooter in the NBA, add in the best bench, add in two of the best glue guys in the NBA in Battier and Chalmers and let them run.

It's not hard. Anthony shot 45% this year. He would shoot 50% too if he was on that team. They all get open looks. Everyone is efficient. When talking efficiency, please leave out the Heat. It's not even fair in that case.

Durant shooting 52% is ridiculous. But don't tell me if Melo and LeBron switched places LeBron would shoot 56%. Because he wouldn't.

lol wow

Everyone knew the Bulls offense was anemic. You basically have your top 2 scorers from the past few seasons not even playing and just got a bunch of other guys who need to depend on others to score.

What did everyone expect? Bulls weren't supposed to win. Short roster, a crybaby who would only play if his team was assured a victory, and their best tactic of winning backfired. I called it, 4 games in a row for Miami when they got their rythym back.

Bulls are mentally done. I wouldn't be surprised if game 5 is a blowout.

Thanks Nostradamus. We would've never thought of it. Thank goodness you didn't predict their first game or else you wouldn't be talking right now.

Thanks, and you're posting this why? If it's already a given, why do you have to further quote it?
