Miami has already run the gambit in this series with a stunning 93-86 loss at home in Game 1 as a 12.5-point home favorite, a 115-78 laugher as a 13-point home favorite in Game 2 and a strong finish in last Friday’s Game 3 to come out on top 104-94 as an 8.5-point favorite on the road.
The defending champions dominated the regular season with the best record in the NBA and rolled over Milwaukee in four games in the opening round of the playoffs, so nobody was more stunned than the Heat themselves when they dropped Game 1 of this series 93-86 as 12.5-point favorites at home.
Game One was a Nets blowout of the Bulls, but Game Two was a totally different story. The Chicago Bulls stole Game Two and evened the series at one each as the team’s return to Chicago for Game Three. Tom Thibodeau’s team clamped down on the defensive end to put together a gutsy win on Monday night. Let’s take a look at how Game Three might look.
Chicago will quickly need to put its dreadful performance in Saturday’s Game 1 loss behind to avoid falling into a 0-2 hole in this best-of-seven opening round playoff series. After managing to score just 14 points in the first quarter of that series opener, the Bulls went on to lose 106-89 as 4.5-point road underdogs. The total went well OVER the 181.5-point line as a result of Chicago giving-up more than 100 points for just the fourth time in their last 11 games.

The last time the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat got on the court together, it was the Bulls that were ending Miami’s 27-game winning streak, the second longest in NBA history. Now, the two meet again in South Beach for their final regular season meeting in what could be a precursor to a second round meeting in the postseason.
The Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls are both fighting hard to get into the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, and the two will meet on Thursday night with the number of days dwindling in the NBA betting campaign.
After rolling over four of the East’s worst teams this past week, the Miami Heat will now have to put their 27-game winning streak on the line against one of the top four or five teams in the conference. Lately it does not seem to matter who the Heat face as they are playing at an entirely different level than everyone else.
