Heat vs. Bulls Preview

Tonight, the Miami Heat (31-10) take on the Chicago Bulls (35-9) in a matchup between the top 2 teams in the Eastern Conference. Chiacgo welcomes Miami without its starting point guard and reigning MVP, Derrick Rose, who is sitting out tonight due to a sore groin. Chicago is on a two-game winning streak while Miami is trying to bounce back from a loss to Orlando last night.

For Miami, the most important thing is to get back on a winning track. Dwyane Wade will be returning home and he has been playing well of late. Expect a big game from D-Wade. LeBron will me matching up against Luol Den, a first-time All-Star who is battling some injuries problem. Bosh seems to be getting back into rhythm and it’s important that he and LeBron both take advantage of Carlos Boozer’s lack of size. The bench needs to be smarter and make better decisions than last night against the Magic.

As for the Bulls, they are missing their MVP Derrick Rose. This is a huge loss for them because he is always their leader and with Luol Deng battling injuries and Carlos Boozer being a disappointment, do not have a real leader on the court. The Heat need to be aware of Joakim Noah, who has the ability to take over the paint, and Joel Anthony needs to take care of him.

The Heat need to win tonight against the Rose-less Bulls. Controversy will start if they lose two games in a row to two of the top teams in the East. Expect Miami to come out strong and fighting, because they don’t want another loss. The game is at 9:30, so be sure to tune in, and then come back to All U Can Heat for post-game.
