Miami Heat: The Chicago Bulls and The Little Nate That Could

MIAMI— Miami Heat fans brace yourselves for a war.

As I mentioned in an earlier article, the playoffs for the Miami Heat haven’t started until now. The glorified practice run against the hapless Milwaukee Bucks was an injustice — the Bucks were simply not a playoff team. The long rest after the inevitable sweep gave the Bulls a slight advantage in Game 1 over a rusty Miami team.

The Heat will be ready for Game 2 — LeBron James and company won’t let us down.

We will need a healthy Dwayne Wade to advance to the Eastern Conference finals — he’s just that valuable. Wade was able to sleepwalk through the first round series and even take a few games off. Unfortunately, the two-time NBA champion will be desperately needed against this tough Bulls squad. Wade is a superstar in his own right, and I look for him to bring the fire in Game 2 against his hometown Bulls.

We will also need to contain Little Nate as well. Lets give credit where credit is due. Nate played a heck of a game scoring a game high 27 points on 8-of-16 shooting. Little Nate even blew up twitter as well:

 

 

It’s not time to panic, it’s just one game in a very long series.  But if you are a Heat Fan Bandwagoner and would like to jump off. Please fill out the form below:
