Looking Ahead To Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls Series.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I'm anticipating an eastern conference finals matchup with the Miami heat and the Chicago Bulls. Not to forget about the Atlanta Hawks but I don't think they can beat the Bulls 2 straight games. Whoever wins the Miami, Chicago series will likely go on to win the NBA championship. I don't see any team that's left in the west that can beat either one of these teams in a 7 game series, plus the east would have home court advantage. The Miami vs Chicago series should be the longest series of the playoffs this year, but how this playoffs has been going who knows. The questions for the Miami Heat coming into this series will be can Miami's big men handle Chicago's bigs, and can Miami slow down Derrick Rose. Will Anthony Randolph be able to deal with Joakim Noah's hustle and energy, and will Chris Bosh be able to outplay Carlos Boozer. Bosh holds the height advantage over Boozer, but can Bosh deal with Boozer's power. Then there's Derrick Rose. I wonder who Miami will have primarily holding Rose. Will they put Wade on him or one of the smaller guards? Wade would probably be the most effective, but he will waste a lot of energy on the defensive end, and you run the risk of getting him into foul trouble.

As for the Chicago Bulls the biggest question for them is how are they going to slow down the big 3. Lebron James is playing at the highest level of his career, Dwayne Wade has been his all-star self, and Chris Bosh seems to always show up when they need him most. The most important thing that the Heat might have going for its self is "motivation". The Heat has to be so motivated to prove people wrong and win a championship in their first year being together. Lebron James should be especially motivated to finally shut people up about the "Decision". The Miami Heat will also have to get the production from their bench that they got in the Boston series. With considering all the intangables, I think the Heat will win this series in 6 or 7 games. I don't think James and Wade will be denied this opportunity to win a championship.
